I have been doing this for a few years now and I don’t
know why I haven’t used the forum of CML to spread the
word till now.
Every now and then I get on a production that I can talk the director
into getting a child from “The Make a Wish Foundation” into
I was just out in Arizona filming a Lorenzo Lamas film “Nowhere
Man” and mentioned to the director about getting a dying child into
the film. This director loved the idea and even wrote a small part into
the movie. This director says that he is planning to do this in all of
Fellow cinematographers, this doesn’t cost anything to do, and it’s
a real tear jerker for those of us that get that warm fuzzy feeling from
doing things like this.
I had a child a few years ago get a small role in a horror film. I have
never seen such joy on a family’s face. That child died a few months
Make-a-Wish took care of all expenses of flying the child and his family
out to Arizona and even gave them a limo ride to and from set.
