As we get ready for Remember the Goal’s second wave of theatrical screenings, actress Quinn Alexis shares her memories of filming.
Working on the set of Remember the Goal was both challenging (because of the heat) and an absolute blast, and getting to know my castmates and the crew was such a joy. Since the majority of the main cast/crew was on set together for around 20 days, we had lots of time to bond, and many of us still keep in touch today. I can’t help but smile when I think of all the craziness we shared, including writing our own impromptu rap! Also, I was specifically touched by how positive everyone was on set. Many of the cast and crew members are Christians, and it inspired me to see them living out their faith by loving those around them, setting a Christ-like example for others to follow.
My journey with Remember the Goal officially started in Spring 2015, when I received audition information from my agent. A very talented local casting director, Regina Moore, worked with me on taping my audition. Dave Christiano, the film’s director/producer/writer, then requested I send in a short video of me running. Not long after that, I found out I had gotten one of the roles I auditioned for, Anna Glass! At first it was a little surreal; I had never been a lead role in a film. All I can say is that God is so faithful, and He comes through for us. I am amazed at God’s goodness in helping me bring the character Anna to life.
One of my favorite results of being in the film is using the platform with which God has blessed me to speak of His goodness! There is something so heavenly about sharing our stories. One of my favorite God-moments from being on set is from my first day of shooting. I woke up with a super sore throat, swollen glands, and just feeling generally horrible. I knew there was no way I could shoot three major scenes that day on my own. I prayed to the Lord, quoting, “When I am weak, then I am strong.” Then I left for set. Man, God came through. I was able to not just get through, but enjoy the whole day on set, and I felt fine as I was filming each scene. That experience was a huge reminder to me of how I need to look beyond my circumstances and my human power, and look to the Source of our power, Jesus Christ.
It was an incredible blessing for me to be in a film that glorifies the Lord and reminds us all of our purpose here on earth: To do everything for His glory. My prayer for the film’s audiences is that they would experience God and His calling on each of our lives in a new, powerful way, and that they would feel His deep love for them. To God be the glory! 10:31!
