This week, we feature someone else's story here on the blog. My friend John Herman wrote and directed the Purple Finch Moving Picture Society's 2009 submission to the New Hampshire 48 Hour Film Project. The film is titled The Way They Were Inside, and aside from featuring great performances by Emily Briand, Chuck Galle, Brian Paul, and too many others to mention, it features a cameo by my daughter, Kaylee Clark.

As I sat in a darkened theater in Londonderry, New Hampshire last night, surrounded by the cast and crew, to watch our film and the handful of others that were screening alongside it, nothing could have prepared me for what I saw. I keep trying to write a sentence here that would describe what I felt without spoiling it for you, but words are failing me. So, I'll just close with this: John and company crafted a touching, funny film, and Kaylee, Stephanie, and I were proud to be a small part of it.
