“All the people who helped us have been fantastic,” said Chase, who plans to study film production at Robert Morris University near Pittsburgh.
“No one gave us a hard time about anything,” said Maxwell, who is undecided about where to continue his film studies.
The filmmakers put out a call for student involvement and found a job for every student who signed up.
While the film tackles serious subjects, there is humor and entertainment value in it, the filmmakers said.
“We want you to laugh, we want you to cry and we want you to be affected by it,” Maxwell said.
“Something to Write Home About” is expected to run 30 to 35 minutes. Adults are asked to make donations with all of the money going to the Hickory prom. Any school groups who would like to see the film can make arrangements by calling Hickory at 981-8750, Ext. 1000
