The new movie “Tim Timmerman, Hope of America,” which comes out on March 3, was filmed last year at Mountain View, and many of Utah County’s students attended pretend classes and football games for the film.
Not only are students going to enjoy this movie just by seeing their friends act as extras, but after seeing the premiere, this movie is worth the watch.
In a Q&A I had with Cameron Sawyer - the director and writer - stated, “By far the biggest most important decision I made after creating the story, was just persistence. It's been a challenge to make this movie during every stage. From writing the story, to raising the money, to filming the movie, to getting it out to theaters, it's been so hard!
“I have wanted to give up numerous times, and I can't tell you how many times it has seemed like things weren't going to work out. But every day brings new opportunities, and I've found that if you really fight for something and stick with it, much of the time problems tend to work their way out.
“So yeah, being persistent and not letting one closed door stop you from moving forward is the biggest things I've learned. Often times the first door isn't the one that opens, but if you stay persistent, other doors will open.”
I admire Cameron for his hard work and positive attitude; he is an incredible example to us. He loves making movies and I’m betting he’ll make more.
Let’s show our love and support for local talent, go see “Tim Timmerman, Hope of America” which has its red-carpet premiere in theaters on March 2nd, at the Jordan Commons Megaplex at 7:00. See you there.
