Today was my first day on the set for "Young American Heroes". See the videos below (all under 1 min) for a Behind the Scenes look at the shoot. My own voice student, Kara Burgess, who is 16, plays my daughter.
I met the woman who runs the Palace theatre in Norwalk at the shoot. She and her husband own the Palace which used to be a performing house and is now a tv/film studio. We talked about brainstorming as they are very into educational elements and liked the idea of linking arms with a theatre like ours.
This is a goal that I have had since the beginning of our founding so it will be good to speak with folks who understand that being diverse in any industry has it's advantages. Being a regional theatre who will be brining folks up from NYC to perform in shows has its advantages for a film/tv studio who wants great talent for their own productions. Why shouldn't theaters producers combine with film producers within a city like Stamford, Norwalk or Greenwich?
