South Carolina Premiere June 30th

One of the screenings I have been looking forward to the most is this Sunday’s screening at the Fine Arts Center in Camden, SC.  Not only has the Fine Arts Center been on board with helping us since we were in pre-production (as well as ACS Sound and Lighting from Columbia), most of the cast and and crew are from South Carolina and many of them have not seen the film yet!  I am thrilled to share it with them and for them to see what their hard work has created.  I am also excited that others who were so helpful with the film (you know who you are!) will be able to see it as well.  The info is below:

Sunday, June 30th
7:00 pm
Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County – main theater (285 seats)
810 Lyttleton Street
Camden, SC 29020
(directions here)
15 minute film followed by Q&A with cast and crew
$5 suggested donation. All proceeds will go towards technical expenses and the Fine Arts Center
