Touchback Trailer

Chills just watching this. In light of current events surrounding Michigan's film industry, I am so happy that I signed up to be an extra in this movie. Little did I know that it would be my only chance - and that makes it that much more special.

I'm reminded of the quote in "Field of Dreams" from Moonlight Graham:

"You know we just don't recognize the most significant moments of our lives while they're happening. Back then I thought, well, there'll be other days. I didn't realize that that was the only day."

I feel that way about a lot of things lately. But hey, I had a blast doing it, and I savored every moment. It was a great experience.

See pictures and the story behind a night of shooting here. They still haven't set a release date as far as I know. It might even go straight to DVD, just not sure yet.

Eventually, I'll get a copy and smile, and remember when we were cool. And we still are cool. Just experiencing a temporary setback that I hope we will remedy in the next few years...
