Most of our work is for sheer entertainment and I’m totally cool with that. I personally seek entertainment every single day. But occasionally, our work gets to serve a greater purpose. We get to inform or call attention, through fictional narrative, to something important. Away & Back was a project like that.
This Saturday we’re showing Away & Back at our local high school auditorium as a free screening for our community to raise awareness and fundraise for the Swan Safe Power Line Project. If we can raise enough money before the snow flies we can bury the power lines (just like Frankie’s Dad did in the Away & Back!) along a 1 mile stretch of land where a dozen swans were electrocuted last year.
