Gwenda Adkins and Marcella
have been developing a program
to teach about the forest. One part of it is a video in which
played by Flo Whitley, is trying to decide what to do with a forested
of land that has been in her family for generations. She
about her grandfather and his stories that he told her about when he
a child and his grandfather. As she ponders what
do she also thinks about what the forest will mean to her children and
Interior scenes set in the present day were shot at our house. The pictures show some of the production. Nancy is the narrator for the video (she didn't want to appear on camera). The last shot is the cast and crew discussing, debating and revising everything about the script during a break in the shooting.
More shooting is planned showing the woman's childhood memories and also what resources are available to help her with her decisions about the forest.
