Making The Truth, A Short Film, is the most amazing experience. Think of it this way: A women entering or should I say having entered her wisdom years, who was teaching second and first graders who now are ???? years old themselves, finds that life has taken her from the classroom to the psychology treatment room to head space where authors sit up late at night writing their books, to becoming a playwrite and now, as if a magic wand has been circled around her head, she is producing an independent film she has written.
Does that sound exciting to you? It is certainly exciting to me, as I am that person. Where lots of my friends are playing golf or preparing to be a snow bird, I am looking at these 20 fabulous scenes, videotaped by Lin, acted by Cassidy, staging and costuming helped by Cassidy’s mom, filmed in my friend Kirsten’s Tea House, the White House on Monmouth Road in Oakhurst, and I am filled with the kind of rapture that only comes with creation and fulfillment of a life dream or project.
I’ll be telling you lots more in further blogs. In fact, we want to share the whole process with you as the film emerges and is sent into festivals around the country. This is too much fun and too important in terms of the messages embedded in The Truth about growing up and staying strong to keep it quiet!
