Summer Reading Program for Children
What could be more important than motivating children to read for a lifetime? This was the second script that I wrote for the program because the librarian thought the action of having children slide down the banisters and fighting with swords was too dangerous. The wizard was initially intended to be played by a pale faced red head but after auditioning 6 theatrical students from Butler High, Kia was the perfect choice. Senator Parker Griffith funded this commercial through his foundation. I had requested 3 hours production time with the children but was only allowed an hour. The quality suffered a bit but was still a hit and brought hundreds of kids into the reading program.
