Behind the Scenes - Pee Wee Football Game

This week we had a blast filming the 7 Yards Pee Wee Game reenactment! Our incredible Executive Producers Ben and Candace Randolph put together this great scene. At Fotolanthropy, we want to invite people into the experience of producing these powerful stories of hope and we enjoyed working with this incredible group. Chris was able to share an inspirational message to the extras and work alongside the film crew to bring a story from his early football days. 

Thank you to our Good Friday gala attendees who bid and won “Actor for a day” spots for Chris Norton’s Warrior team players, cheerleader and super fans! We would also like to especially thank our "young Chris" Gavin Tracer (he did a fantastic job and we all feel he has a future in film). 

A huge thank you to the Warriors of Liberty Christian School in Argyle, Texas for supporting the film with many athletes, fans, fabulous field and top notch football facilities. We felt the Warrior Welcome and were blessed by everyone we met. 

And last but not least, not sure we could have hosted a better team for a football rivalry than the Southlake Dragons.... way to show up to spur on the Warriors! We appreciate you bringing some Dragon defense to the field; we could feel the energy and appreciate all that this will bring to the scene.

Chris' story of hope will be told to the world and we are so thankful for all of you who have played a part in making that possible! We appreciate you!

"This was by far the most amazing, inspirational experience for not only Brandon and I but especially our kiddos. We cannot wait for the Premier and to celebrate with you guys! Thank you so much for including our family today!"
