Avalon 25 Years Ago

In 1989, I traveled to Baltimore, Maryland. It was there where it all began. My wonderful journey into the fantastical business of making motion pictures. Twenty five years ago this year! If you are reading this in October or November, it was these months when we were working on Barry Levinson’s movie Avalon. The movie was released in 1990.

I have set up a blog site about the experience. I call it the Special Effect of Avalon. It is a simple stopover to share and remember the stories from the set.

If you were part of the Crew, we worked together. Perhaps you were an Actor or an Extra. Maybe you were a citizen of Baltimore in 1989 watching it all happen or you are connected to it in some other way. If you were close to it, the effects are probably special to you too. Over the years, I have gushed about the production experience and how it was and still is, in my opinion, the high-water mark of what working on a movie should be… collaborative, family, and memorable. This movie and the connected production experience made a positive impact on my career – and life.
