Ernie and I worked on a project called GALLOWS ROAD, where we played opposite of each other as Bob and Emma Collins. Since then, we've kept our friendship and have waited for the opportunity to work again. Recently, Ernie and I met to catch up over dinner. He expressed how he wanted to see me succeed in this industry and charged me to do a 15 minute short film with content that I was passionate about. He also agreed to star in it to help me. Wow! Isn't that amazing?
So, I started thinking about the content. What would I write about? After several days and several ideas, I thought about my parents and the love they had for each other. So, I wrote about them and my heart melted. I actually cried while writing it. I knew it was the one. So, I sent the script to Ernie and he loved it!
Now, here we are in pre-production stage. I have to hire the crew, rent equipment, get permits, locations, hire additional cast, etc. Pre-production is in full swing. It's going to cost $7000 to make this happen. I'll be directing it and playing opposite of Ernie again. So, this will be a challenge. But, if I can pull it off, I'll have a masterpiece. And with your help, it can be done!
UPDATE! We are almost complete with the film. While shooting, when ran into a few issues. This electricity went out in the whole neighborhood, the battery camera pack went dead and it started storming. Because of this, we ended up having to work overtime, which unfortunately brought my cost up. So, now I'm trying to settle the post-production cost. And, this is where your dollars will go.
I Love You...Forever, is about a married couple, Skip and Mary Henry, who's love for each other has surpassed the test of time. 40 years has passed, and the two are still inseparable even though they're dealing with Mary's terminal illness. Can love conquer the stress that the possibility of death could bring? The Henry's may have the answer.
