Dreams Can Come True--with a lot of work and determination

I've been filming. I will show you the short movie--my first--when it is done and I feel okay about it all.  Right now I am only showing it to family and a few close friends that ask me right out to see it (so if you want to see the works so far, let me know).
 As you can see, Erika and her whole family helped. A. helped by holding the boom microphone (he did super--thanks A!).  Ben was a great assistant director/microphone holder helper.  He was really great at keeping us all focused.  And Erika was a great actor!  She was just how I imagined her part--which is the part of a neighbor of my grandfather when he was little (played by you, T).
 Then the next Monday, Daddy helped us film in another place 20 miles away.  In the movie it seems like a short walk--ah, the beauty of cinematography.
 To those who will be seeing it, please do not expect something you'll see in a movie theater, because it is not near that point.
 We had to film several places and on the second filming day it was so warm that it was the shortest filming day of all.
I hope you enjoyed making the film, kidlets.  Remember it is a learning process and we're doing it to learn together and come closer as a family. Right now we are focusing on filming stories from our ancestors.

Also, it is a dream of mine that I have had for several years and it feel so great to do what I have wanted to do for so long.  It is also so nice to have friends that will drop everything and help.  I feel so blessed!
