My children and I were cast as extras in "Gospel Hill", Giancarlo Esposito's directorial debut. The film stars Angela Bassett, Danny Glover, Julia Stiles, Taylor Kitsch, Nia Long, RZA as well as Giancarlo and others.
Anyway, we were called for two scenes. It was great for them to experience working on a set and to participate in something that felt important. As it turns out, Gospel Hill has won numerous film festival awards and was shown at the Democratic National Convention, the Republican National Convention, and during the Inaugural Celebration.
I was really proud of our children because they were more interested in learning about the inner workings of the film industry than they were in star gazing, although Danny Glover chatted a few of them up during a camera adjustment.
I brought several pieces of my jewelry to the shoots and got them approved by the costume designer, so Sirius7 Jewelry made it to the big screen!
