A :30 second TV spot encouraging mid 20's to 30 something women to consider going back to school or to finish their college education. Overall, the message is suggested that by finishing a college education there would be, "...no telling how far you can go!!!
Principle motion-picture photography was captured on film in early June of 2007 in Opelika, Alabama. Aired on selected broadcast TV and Cable TV stations in Alabama.
TRIVIA: The 16mmm camera negative was processed and transferred to digital video at Cinefilm Laboratories in Atlanta, Georgia. Tom was told by the technicians and PR folks there that they could not believe the footage was shot on 16mm. They had never seen 16mm shot so well that it looked like 35mm. In fact, some of the Cinefilm staff had to literally go to the film cine to be sure it was not 35mm. They wanted to see for themselves that it was in fact, shot on 16mm. They asked him a lot of questions about what film stock he used and contrast ratios of his key to fill lighting effects. Tom thought hearing about that was likely the best compliment he could have possibly received.
NOTE OF INTEREST: Tom Lenard loves the house he used as a location in this spot. He's used it three times over the past ten years. Twice for night principle photography, and once for a day shoot there.
