PERRY HIGH SCHOOL was one location utilized in filming a movie on Tuesday, May 22 involving Anna Nutter-German, who created the initial story and was also the lead, and Jude Tobias from Holt, who was a supporting cast member. The two are shown enjoying a break during the busy evening schedule.
The title for the film is “Me, Being A Boy, With Superpowers.” Nutter-German started writing the premise (her book) for what became the script in 7th-grade and continued to work on it into 11th-grade. “I write for fun,” she shared. “It is something to do in my free time. And I wanted to be a super hero.” Nutter-German has cerebral palsy, but not much holds the teenager back, particularly in utilizing her active imagination.
As well as collecting books and finding inspiration in stories, Nutter-German enjoys seeking out the names for her characters on her computer. The central character in the movie, her character, is Lucas, who is a “made-up character who is home-schooled because of his super- powers.” A couple of Lucas’ superpowers include super speed and hearing.
In support of her dream, close family members and friends have collaborated in the making of the film. Andrew LeMay, a filmmaker from Phoenix, AZ and Perry native, has dedicated an enormous amount of effort to the project and has been involved with every level in the creation of the film; even coordinating transporting his equipment to Perry. Members of the Tobias family: Dan, Mandie, Jude and Izabel, along with other members from the Nutter family and Anna’s grandparents, have helped out.
Nathan Landick, a 2008 graduate of Perry High School, had only just met LeMay when he volunteered his film experience on the project, which ultimately is focused on Nutter-German seeing her vision to be a super-hero realized.
