Directors like her can create wonders in Hollywood if they learn the ropes of their trade while making films for television.
The story of ‘Remember Me, Mommy?’ is quite interesting. It centers around a woman called Rebecca who works as a teacher in an elite private school for girls. Suddenly one day a new student arrives at the school on a scholarship and Rebecca is somehow taken aback by her. We come to know that Rebecca was a mother once, but seventeen years ago, she had given up her child for adoption. She is of the opinion that this new girl is probably her own daughter. But has this teenager chosen this school in order to exact revenge upon her biological mother who had abandoned her all those years ago? To know the answer, you have to check out the film on Lifetime.
TV movies like ‘Remember Me, Mommy?’ are mainly shot in indoor locations in order to keep the production within its budget. Producers of such films cannot afford to move their cast and crew from one city to another, and thus they choose a location where most of the film can be shot easily. This is the reason such films are shot in indoor locations, in Los Angeles, or in certain parts of Canada where exciting tax benefits are on offer for film production companies.
