"The Fifth Little Girl" Promotional Video & Press Release

Sarah Collins Rudolph and the Rev. Jesse Jackson.

The Art Aperitif Production team traveled to Birmingham, Alabama to conduct a first block of location shooting for "The Fifth Little Girl" September 13th - 18th. Against the backdrop of the city's 50th Anniversary commemorative events, we interviewed the Rev. John Reynolds, who worked closely with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the 1960s, G. Douglas Jones, the former United States attorney who prosecuted the bombers, biographer and historian Tracy Snipe, and Sarah Collins Rudolph herself. We were also given full access to follow Sarah as she attended events for the anniversary, and were therefore able to record powerful speeches by civil rights giant Joseph Lowery, a special church service with keynote speaker Attorney General Eric Holder, and a wreath-laying with the Rev. Jesse Jackson.

We've created a promotional video to showcase our vision of the film and - most importantly - raise the funds we need to complete this historic film. Without the completion costs, this documentary will not be made, so we urge any interested donors to please visit our Kickstarter campaign or contact is directly at at gmail dot com.You can also donate directly to this film via PayPal using the same address as the recipient.

The promo video is available on our Youtube channel at this link:

In addition, the official press release for this project is now available and we welcome any members of the press to use it, share it, or contact us for more information and interviews.

AP Life Production Update

The first production block for season one of AP Life was completed this week! Filming locations included a community college in Danielson CT, Palmieri's Pizza and Bella's Italian Market in Putnam, CT, and Quaddick State Park and beach in Thompson CT. It was two VERY long days of shooting but the dailies were absolutely brilliant. The cast turned in outstanding performances all around. We got a bit unlucky with a rainy and overcast day at the beach, but otherwise everything went as planned.

There are tons of photos over on the AP Life Facebook page, but here are some EXCLUSIVE shots you won't find anywhere else. Enjoy!
