Making a Movie, In Salisbury
Harry Bainbridge makes movies. He made one at Hotchkissabout a cardboard boat race. He made another about discrimination. And now, with a little help from friends and neighbors, he will be making a movie titled “Michael.” The plot is based, in part, on his own life and is set at Indian Mountain School where he was a student. A few months before he was born, Bainbridge’s father died aboard Pan Am flight 103, which was exploded by a terrorist bomb over Lockerbie, Scotland, Dec. 21, 1988. The 9/11 attack, when he was 12 at IMS, was a very disturbing event for him. “I was very calm at the time,” he recalls. “I had learned to be calm in relation to such an event.” The movie he is making is about that day and the way people responded to the attacks. Now, with the cast set, he is looking for extras: boys and girls ages 10 to 15, and adults age 30 and older. Shooting at IMS begins June 24 and runs through July 3.
