“I can’t say it enough; thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone involved — especially Captain Nick Pellegrini, Commander Alicia Welch, Peter Sanders, Jeremy Oberstein, Tower 81, Principal Mary Beth Lutz and St Mel school. Without them – there literally is NOT a film. They graciously went above and beyond in donating fire gear, locations, the entire school location for a day, etc. With short films, they are non-profit and it is impossible to raise funding. Out of pocket, it would have been impossible to pay for these things and I think about you all every single time I watch this film. You were all crucial to the process – I am forever indebted. I hope this film goes on to inspire our future heroes.”
– Jason Honeycutt, Director, “Supermom”
