I made my big screen debut this past month in "Alone Yet Not Alone", a film based on a true story that takes place during the revolutionary war dealing with a family separated by indians. It was partially shot here in Roanoke at the Explore Park over four years ago! It took that long for this "indie gem" to grace the silver screen. I think there was budgetary issues or something to that effect.
I finally made my way to the local theatre on a Monday afternoon and to my surprise, there was a decent crowd occupying the seats. The audience consisted of mostly females age 60 to death, but you know what, I'll take it! Once the credits began to appear, I knew this faith-based film would be a dud. Sorry Jesus, but it's "truth time". Ten minutes in, this film felt like it was aspiring to be a Hallmark Channel original movie but alas, Andie McDowell was unavailable. I keep praying that the projectionist would accidentally hit a button that'd skip to my scene.
Finally it arrived and you bet your ass I had my camera phone out. In fact I had two! Good ol' Rod was there with me snapping away on his phone that's not good enough to be an iPhone ;). We snapped my entire 5 1/2 minutes of screen time like some overzelous paparazzi.
My scene deals with a large angry group marching to Washington...? Who knows? Who cares? I'm on the big screen. Here's the play-by-play:
Once my 5 1/2 minutes of fame was up, we snuck out and saw X-Men.
