It’s all over. After a year of producing, planning, filming, editing, and showcasing, it’s all done. In case you are not sure of what I am talking about, I am talking about my capstone documentary: Moore Hope-The Amelia Moore Story.
There are so many people I have to thank, but before we get to that I must talk about the showcase. It all finally went down after a year. I woke up that day thinking I had no sleep in me. This is partially true because I slept maybe two hours that night. I just lied in my bed awake, thinking about the next day. I got to my destination, Mueller Theater, one hour before show time to make sure everything was set up. It was good to go. People came flooding in, the lights went out, and it was show time. Everything went perfect. People loved the documentary, saying how moved they were by the story. I was moved by everyone telling me. Many tears were shed that day. It was a crazy day.

So my thank you to everyone. I was the producer, camera operator, editor, and director of the operation but had many people to help me along the day. I have to give a big thank you to Andrew Borts and Andrew Moore, my consultants and supervisor producers. They have helped me so much with the production with their ideas and will to always give me feedback. Thank you to JD Eicher and The Goodnights for providing me music for the film. It made the film having their music. A HUGE thank you to the man who taught me so much on how to edit videos, my Professor Brad Weaver. Finally, thank you to The Treshok family and the Moore family for taking part in this process of doing interviews and helping think of great settings for them.
Small list of thank you to Garrett Conn, Alex Taylor, and Andrew Hribik. Without these three taking the time to proof-watch the documentary, it could not be done.
It’s all done. I have gained so much knowledge about myself and life throughout this process. It has taught me to be thankful for everything that I have in my life and never take a day for granted. Be happy for everything that we have in life, but also take the time to help somebody every day. I hope you also realize this after watching Moore Hope-The Amelia Moore Story.
