The Asril Premiere Event

Some of Ethan's student's have been working on creating a feature length film for over three years now and the premiere for it was last night at our local cinema. The writer and director of the film is just 17 years old. Ethan was in the film which meant that we got to walk the "red carpet" last night with the cast and crew complete with arriving in a limo. To say that we had fun would be putting it lightly. It was so neat to be right there with the kids in their moment of glory. I was so proud of them. They were so excited (and so deservedly so) and I have to think that there will be a day in the not so far off future when I see the name Jory Federighi and it will be attached to some major film in Hollywood. This kid is seriously talented and has the drive to make it wherever it is that he decides to go. If he is this ambitious at just 17 I can't even imagine where he'll be in ten years time.

Here is the movie poster:

Below is a picture of most of the actors in the film (the young lady who played one of the leading roles is missing because she had a basketball game).

After the first showing of the film the cast and crew and a select group of others were invited to attend an after "party" where you could see "behind the scenes" photos, props, wardrobes, etc.

Here is the trailer to the film:



It was filmed right here where we live and some shots were taken from the Porcupine Mountains so it was really neat to see all the familiar places featured throughout the film.



These kids have so much to be proud of!

Another reason that this was a special night...Zoey had her first ever babysitter that was not family or a mother of a friend. We've never left her at night either, so this was a pretty big deal.

And it's safe to say that she absolutely loved it and had a blast. Thank you (chicken) Patty! =)
