So if you watched Good Day Columbia on Monday morning hoping to see us, it turns out our story didn’t air then. But during a report about SC Governor Nikki Haley appearing in an episode of Army Wives, they mentioned tuning in to the 10:00pm news for a piece about local filmmakers. We got moved to the evening newcast, which probably means even more people got to see our delightful faces opening and closing the story about film incentives. After our parents watched the piece online, they said we didn’t embarrass them, so that’s good, right?
We also heard that the same story ran in Charleston on the ABC news at 7:00pm, so Saying Goodbye got more exposure than we thought it would, which is always a good thing. To see us in action, click here.
Richard Futch, the president of the Carolina Film Alliance who was also featured in the story, was the casting director for our film. And our 2nd AD Matthew Sefick was also briefly shown on camera. So this piece turned out to be a mini Saying Goodbye reunion!
Thank you to Brian McConchie for doing a story about the importance of film incentives and state funding of the arts and for including us in it!
