A grad school friend, Niam, lives in Beruit. When she heard that my new film TAKEN IN had been funded, she wished me well on Facebook.
This got me thinking about how large...and small the world is these days.
I mean, most of the backers who donated money to help me make the film are from around here…South Carolina, Western North Carolina...the Southeastern United States. But I have a whole lot of supporters from other places, too.
