One of the great opportunities I had with SBCF was to write, produce, and direct a commercial for the cause. I have wanted to direct for about six years and so this was a dream come true. I had a wonderful day, in torrential downpour, working with an amazing crew to make this PSA.
Everything you see on screen, every person in front of and behind the camera, every piece of equipment (and boy did we have some fabulous equipment - can you say Super Techno Crane?) was donated, free, and given without hesitation. People were calling us offering to come work for the day. I was floored at the generosity. But this is our livelihoods. And for most of us, it's not just a job, it's a passion. We just want to get back to work.
