A memory of a lifetime ...

My name is Bernard and this is my story about Home of the Giants.

During class I overheard some people talking about a movie being filmed in the gym. I didn't pay it much attention because I thought that it was something small that the film department was doing, so I walked right past the gym. I went to work and my part-timer asked if he could have the day off. He said that he was playing basketball in a movie at my college. So I told him that he could have the day off and I would go to the school to see how he was doing.

Well, after work I went to the gym and realised that a major motion picture was being filmed! It was very exciting to see the actors, and everyone involved in the process of making this movie. I couldnt make it the second day of filming but I was able to make it that Sunday.

In high school I had always wanted to become an actor, or at least to do something which involved acting. I went on theater competitions, I've done dinner theater, and little theater, but never a major motion picture.

My mother had passed away the month before and I was still saddened. That Sunday I sat in the bleachers and became part of the action, but what made it a memory of a life time was when the director asked me if I wanted a line. My heart dropped, but I wasn't afraid. My high school theater teacher had always told me that if the opportunity came to take it, and that's exactly what i did.

I can't wait until the movie comes out.


Bernard Duncan has his name in the end crawl credits of Home of the Giants as " Fan" .
His mother would have been proud!
