I had an epic experience this summer, photographing the behind the scenes movie production of a local film called It’s Not Permanent. I was brought back to my documentary photography roots with our very first experience together, sitting around the table read for the short film. More of my behind the scenes images can be found on our Instagram Page.
This movie was written, produced and directed by Director Rick Hansberry and executive produced by the Be A Giver Foundation. You can follow all updates associated with the film at the film’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ItsNotPermanentMovie/
The foundation, Be A Giver, was created to raise funds for organizations that support finding a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. You can follow all of the events hosted by Be A Giver at: https://www.facebook.com/beagvr/.
The organization and the film were inspired by the real life struggle that Corinne Sharnetzka encounters as a young woman dealing with Type 1 Diabetes. Corinne, centered above in the pink shirt, is navigating the roads of entering her teen years, friendships and social pressure at school while dealing with a disease that is invisible to her peers but highlighted with her medic alert bracelet.
Many great organizations and individuals were brought together for the creation of this film. Featured above is Dr. Robert Mott of York College, also listed as an executive producer of It’s Not Permanent alongside Todd Myers, owner of Westside Ink Inc.
The film features an original song, written and performed by Lancaster native, Ashley Elizabeth.
The film has garnered a lot of local media interest because the entirety of this film was made in Corinne’s hometown, York, PA and supported by all local organizations and individuals. Featured below is Emily Yinger of the York Dispatch enthralled with the stories and laughter shared around the table.
Self portrait. There was one constant at my side throughout each day of shooting in addition to my cameras, lenses, etc. . . . it was this ladder. There was so much going around me that some of my favorite moments were captured with this slightly bird’s eye view of the movie making activity.
Featured below are some of the fantastic actresses of the film including Carrie Trax, Rory Noble, Alax Kemp, Corinne Sharnetzka, Ally Eaton and Julia Smecker.
Featured below is makeup artist and hair stylist for the film, Megan Crozier. I love working with this Korean_D0ll and have pulled her to work on a number of different projects with me. I love this portrait of her but it is very deceptive of the relaxed, sweet personality that always surrounds her.
