Meet the Programmer: Stacy Brick of AFS’s Sunday School Series
What made you want to start programming the Sunday School series?
As soon as my kids were old enough to watch movies I knew I wanted to expose them to programming that was different from the usual choices. Kids are really open and can absorb things that may at first glance seem too complex. They will sit still for longer than you think to watch things like silent movies – it’s a beautiful thing to see a theater full of kids cracking up over Buster Keaton or Harold Lloyd. I started screening films for friends with kids in my yard back in 2012 when my kiddos were pretty young.
What were some of your favorite films growing up?
The first movie I remember going to see – at the Highland Mall theater – was THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING WOMAN. When I was eight we went to Universal Studios and they had some of the giant furniture there that they used for the movie. It was cool to see that behind the scenes kind of thing as such a young kid. It’s always been one of my favorites and we screened it last year at Sunday School.
