Contrary to what many directors would have you believe, making a film is not all about the guy (and rarely the gal – Hollywood’s dark little secret) who yells at the actors and tells them to do it with more ennui. A film is created by a wide range of artists and craftspeople who each bring their talents to bear on a project that most likely will just be a money pit.
So it is with Wrestling For Jesus (I’m talking about the crew here, not the money pit). I (director Nathan Clarke) have been able to work with a great group of artists and creative thinkers that have helped turn WFJ into something far better than I ever could have imagined.
One of those people is Melanie Killingsworth. Recently Mel wrote about her experiences working on the project as an Assistant Editor. I think you’ll enjoy her thoughts.
