hildene fred The Hildene family home in Manchester, Vermont is a special place to learn about Robert Todd Lincoln, the only child of Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln to survive to adulthood. It’s also the ideal setting for a movie backdrop with one of Vermont’s most legendary theater playwrights, Fred Carmichael. In the bottom photo he’s having a fake moustache glued on for a narrative outdoor scene.

Today’s assignment was one of my first experiences shooting for a film production and/or with actors. At 83 years old, Fred likes to admit that he’s dyslexic and rather is 38 years young. What a beautifully entertaining and humorous professional to work side-by-side with on a gorgeous Autumn day. Nor could have I asked for a more patient Director to instruct me on movie-making tips and guidelines. I can’t tell you too much more about the film because it’s suppose to be a secret.. but know that as soon as it’s edited and released, you’ll be the first to know where to see PilotGirl’s credit.
