It was about 8am when I arrived on set to the home of film producer, Heather Anderson who welcomed the crew with smell of fresh home-made muffins. Mmmm. Adorned with inspiring antiques with a modern southern feel- the home is in fact, the perfect set for a love story which this family lives in real life. The space was warm and inviting. However, today it was the home of characters Grace, played by Bella Kane who invites her love interest, John (Brian Elder), over for an evening of "Netflix and Chill."
As a crew member in charge of audio, I watched and listened as the couple "acted" for the camera....and Action! They laughed, cried and fought out what seems to be a prevalent issue that many people may deal with in real life. "What role does love play in relationships and how does God reveal love to us?" "How can love help to settle differences?" "How do you know when it's right?" These are all questions that came to mind whilst assisting on set and I was all too happy to get some answers.
Our last scene was shot that evening at First Christian Church Plano. Bella marches down the isle determined for answers...and Action! Her heart-felt words shouting, "Why God WHY?" penetrated the mic and sent an eerily sincere sensation through my headphones and into my heart. With "Clear Eye" tears streaming down her faced, Bella prayed on her knees before the pulpit. It was a scene that appeared to be all too familiar. She pleaded for answers, some of which could be found in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 New International Version (NIV). As for the rest, you'll just have to watch.
