I can’t believe I haven’t posted about this here, yet. I’ve been so busy with everything else, I’ve let you down. Here’s the deal. Some major news on the filmmaking front!
I’ve got a new major project. It’s a documentary film about competitive speech and debate. Here’s the pitch:
If My Judges Are Ready? is a documentary film project following a group of homeschool speech and debate competitors from Texas through the 2017-2018 season of competition as they work to reach and win the national tournament. The story is the personal struggle of each competitor to overcome their own limitations, perfect their pieces and navigate the tournament schedule in order to compete in the national tournament at the end of the season. More important than how they place is how they will grow and mature through the process. The film will give the audience a glimpse into the life of these competitors, show what it’s like to be in a club, to select content, practice and practice, be judged on performances, win, lose, and learn.
It’s a huge project. It will take a year to shoot and months to edit. But I’m excited to tell the story. Follow the link to the website to see production updates. Or sign up for my email list and get them right in your inbox!
