A strong moment before can be the difference between a good scene and an unforgettable scene. It reminds you that before the lights came on, before the camera started rolling, before a character ever started speaking, they were living and going through the motions that would ultimately bring them to the spotlight.
The same is true for the greatest actors and filmmakers of our time. Before they were household names, people like Denzel Washington, Meryl Streep, Steven Spielberg, and Ava DuVernay were all working behind the scenes to develop the skills that would ultimately bring them to the top of their game. However, until that big break came, their talent went largely unrecognized for years, despite the fact that they were destined to change the world with their gifts. After all, greatness does not depend on the number of people who know your name.
So that’s where we come in. The Moment Before is a passion project intended to feature the movers and shakers of Atlanta’s effervescent film community, serve as a bulletin board for upcoming events and opportunities, share resources for aspiring and working actors, and give our local industry a space to come together and become better connected.
If you leave this page feeling as proud as we are to be members of Atlanta’s entertainment community, then we’ve done our job.
We look forward to catching you in your moment before…
