Last night, I had the privilege of attending the premier of the movie, Waiting for Butterflies. The movie was shot in Aiken and much of the original script was modified to tie our city into the movie…and tied in very well it was.

I used “Finally” as the title because the premier was originally planned for early May but was pushed back a few months.

Even though I was close to what was going, on as the climax of the movie was shot at George Funeral Funeral Home & Cremation Center, I really had little idea as to how the entire movie would play out.

I wrote a few posts about the experience with Butterflies on the way

The movie is quite moving and I hope it gets the distribution it deserves. I would describe the story as the tale of a family that is torn apart by a tragedy and then comes together because of the wisdom of the family matriarch combined with the intrinsic value of healing and completing relationships.

I only cried twice.

Additionally, the Chamber of Commerce and the realtors association could not have produced a better “Come Live in Aiken” commercial if they tried. The guys at New Daydream Films captured the beauty and mystery of Aiken like nothing I have ever seen before.

I was surprised at the end to see my name in the credits for allowing them to use the funeral home. Something else to add to the resume, I suppose. (not).

About Ray V.

Living between Aiken & Nashville, TN, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.
