What does it take to complete a 90 second video trailer?
I decided to make a portion of my story available to anyone courtesy of Youtube, to be titled, Paper and Spit.
Finding the right filmmaker was crucial. After recommendations and video samples, we chose Mike Chenoweth to captain this project.
What to film?
After careful consideration, the beginning of the story was chosen. A script had to be written. Director Mike Chenoweth and Producer Doug Anderson wrote the script. Locations and individuals to portray certain characters were needed. Our son David Anderson was chosen to act as the main character, with cousin Kathy Hopkins acting the part of her Mother, Don's Aunt Margaret at the end. Location, location, location.............Oregon was the natural choice.
With the pieces in place, two days in March were selected for filming. As luck would have it and unique challenges notwithstanding, the filming finished within the two days allotted. Then came the editing and finish work.
Never dreaming to be involved with a project such as this, the dream
became a reality before our very eyes.
