Catch the Trailer for My Grandson’s New Movie: Ghede Origins


OK, this blog post is an unabashed proud grandmother post.  My grandson, Kameron Badgers, is the young actor you see in the trailer showing his on-screen mom (Cassie Shea Watson) a strange bite he received at school….just before a zombie infection starts spreading. I won’t give away the rest of the plot, but it’s an action adventure story that’s heavy on both.

I was very proud of the hard work everyone put in on this short film, and had a blast waiting “back stage” with other parents who had kids on set. Often, when a child actor is filming, parents are told to “wait over there”, and the busy production assistants give little thought to the comfort available “over there”. I’ve waited for hours under bridges (in August, in Texas), my car, an empty room in a crumbling courthouse, and the tunnel under the old Dallas jail where Lee Harvey Oswald was shot.

But not on this film: for this one, parents relaxed in the beautifully decorated dining room of director Vincent Moctezuma, while the cast and crew shot next door. Talk about luxury for the moms and dads of working child actors! The great company helped, too — we got to work with some of the best local talent, and I wound up making friends I think will last for years to come, as did Kameron.

Here’s a link to the film’s IMDB page, for a list of all the talented writers, directors, stunt performers, and actors who worked on it.  Can’t wait to see the whole thing later this year.
