Hollywood Premiere

A is taking video camp through the local cable access channel and it’s been a lot of fun for her. She really enjoys many of the aspects of creating a film, from the story, to the acting and directing, and finally, the editing. Plus, she’s good with the computer, where much of the action takes place, especially editing. They had been preparing their movie all week, and at the end of the week, they were ready to show their movie to the world.

It was a lot of fun, they got all dressed up and had a red carpet gala, just like in Hollywood. They even gave them stars with their names on them, like the Walk-of-Fame. There was food and snacks, and friends and family came to watch. In fact, the Hs came, which I thought was really cool. They had some intros for the cast and crew, and then we got to watch the films, which were hilarious and a lot of fun.

It was a really nice time, and though A was the only girl, the two interns running the show were women, so A got to bond with girls in the industry. It seems like the camps that A has interest in attracts a lot of boys and not much in the way of girls. This is not a bad thing, I’m just wondering what all the girls are doing out there. After the premiere, the kids ate treats (we broke from our healthy eating plan) that included cookies, candy, and Boston Creme Pie, then they headed off with A&I to swim at their house. A nice way to end the day, because it was scorching hot. Then it was off to Hanover for another film premiere, but that’s a story for another time.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to bang_ksd@picture for the pic.
