Thank you to the Digital Journal for featuring Roxanne Messina Captor (RMC) on the cusp of the Indie Series Awards. Papadatos asked RMC about her future plans and advice for aspiring filmmakers. The following were quotes from this article.
Regarding her future plans, Captor remarked, “I am developing “Dream Moms,” a musical project I wrote with Hallmark Channel. “Pearl,” a historical romance based upon the life of the Nobel Prize-winning author Pearl Buck starring Judith Light, William H. Macy, John Cho, Leehom Wang, and Jing Tian, with support from The Pearl S. Buck Foundation.”
“I would love to see ‘The Salon’ on one of the major streamers, cable or networks,” she added.
For young and aspiring directors and producers, she offered the following advice: “I teach this in seminars and in my classes: ‘Perseverance, Persistantance, Passion, and Discipline.’ This will keep you going when things get tough.”
The new documentary short film “Homecoming: Veterans, Wives, Mothers” salutes women veterans who’ve served in the military to protect our country.
Documentaries have been produced since 1922. They were always considered the educational part of moviemaking; not entertainment. That has all changed. We are in the Golden Age of Documentaries. Prominent directors are using the documentary format to tell their stories. My documentary “Homecoming: Veterans, Wives, Mothers” joins the ranks for consideration for the “Outstanding Short Form Non-Fiction” Daytime Emmy Award for 2021.
