This is a GoFundMe for a family in Texas who lost their home as a neighbor in the building lit a fire to keep warm. The fire spread from that apartment, across the building. Sarah Jane’s Apartment Building Fire

Here’s the Romancin Melansons’ contribution to the amazing HoVid Povid project!
Fulfilled my dream of playing Billy Butcherson and got to run around the backyard with my family and a camera like the old days. Thanks to everyone who made this scene happen, in front of the camera and behind the scenes! Some of us were never even in the same place at the same time. Make sure to check out the full fan-made film, an entire movie recreated scene by scene from teams all around the world, so cool to see everyone’s different art forms and talents : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8ZPP…
Thanks to Dani Abraham and Nicolas Wendl for putting this fun project together! So happy to have been a part of this with my family. Running around the backyard recreating one of our favorite movies of all time was such a return to the core of what I love to do. It felt like being ten years old again. And getting to share that with my nephew for the first time and seeing his interest in the process really made this experience the highlight of quarantine! Thanks to everyone for all their hard work in making this scene happen.
