Prison Letters, Episode 1 is complete. Thank you to Pastor David and everybody involved in the production.
For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. If I am to live in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me. Yet which I shall choose I cannot tell.
These are some clips from a story board directed by Leslie Ann Velez. Class of 2020, Suny Oswego. The film was canceled due to Covid, which was heart breaking. I received the call early March, in the afternoon, on the way to my mothers house. There was a flurry of bad news to follow. Like rain falling from the sky. Four bookings cancelled within hours that Thursday afternoon. Meetings were inevitably postponed. I was inspired, and given hope for better days to come when she decided to press on a few weeks later, and create the story board you see here today. We produced this from our homes, at our desks the best we could. It was wonderful! One the best days I've had all year. I believe I speak for everyone involved when I say that we hope to make this film one day, tell the story, and bring her vision to life. I'm so proud to have been a part of this. Thank you class of 2020!
Special thanks to Yuntao Liu, and everybody that made this film possible. It was such an amazing journey. I look forward to the official release, so the story will be told, and am excited for news from the festivals. Everyone put their heart and souls in it, and I made so many wonderful friends.
I'm happy to be able to share a few clips, and stills from this film with you. Foster was a very important, challenging, and emotionally draining character to portray. I went out for diner with my cousin one night after filming, and he said I didn't look like myself. He asked if I was okay. I told him that I was fine, and on my way back. Then I spoke with him about the film. The heart of this movie is an ongoing story engrained in our society today. Alexander Bok has lived through very difficult times, and this motion picture is a vision of a world he created from his heart. It's a story of hope, triumph, and love. A vision, and a part of his soul. I learned a great deal working with everyone on this project, and am forever grateful to have been a part of his journey.
