About the Film

The film shows the inspirational people who are blind living in our community and how their lives are impacted today by a day camp started over 100 years ago along with its rich history. What excites me is shedding a little light on a small place that does wonders but most are unaware of it.

An Interview with Liz Lamorte

What has been a real high point point for you in creating this film? What excites you about your submission to the FilmOneFest?
Being able to hear personal stories behind the faces in the film and sharing their lives with others was very rewarding and inspirational to hear. The thrill of spreading the word about a place not many know exists and learning of the deep history it had in the community made me do the short film which is just an introduction to a documentary I will now be putting together.
A questions about “One Minute” films: As you think about one minute films, what kinds of possibilities are there for this medium? What does it mean to you particularly?

Endless possibilities to express one’s interest, topics or art in a very to the point manner which can be seen my many. A short film allows you to experiment with stories and images that can touch others without the compromise of other influences at no matter what level of skill you may be which is so detrimental to new filmmakers no matter where they come from, your own backyard or across the world.
Talk a little about your influences: If you think about the gifts and skills you bring to film-making, what do you find energizes you most? What inspires you or compels you in your art form, and in what ways are you inspired?

My great interest in human stories and events gives me the passion I need to be able to film what I focus my attention on in a deeply curious and genuinely open view to see everything that it has to reveal and express in its storytelling. My inspiration always comes from curiosity of the various human lives that will somehow spark my interest.
