“I was sitting in church and realized that all around me was this masquerade,” said Director Jeremiah McLamb, the 25-year-old Fayetteville, NC native. “There were all these shining, happy faces, masking pain, hiding doubt. And I started wondering what happens when the masks come off?”
The result of those mid-sermon musings will be shown this fall. “Masquerade,” a film that delves into the spiritual struggles of faith and friendship, wraps up filming in Fayetteville during the next couple of weeks.
The film, a semester-long project, stars students and church members at Northwood Temple. And, unlike the people McLamb described sitting in church, it’s not shiny and happy.
“Masquerade” is, at times, gritty and tough to swallow. It stings and soothes at the same time, revealing some of the doubts and difficulties that come when walking a life of faith.
The result is far from amateur, however. McLamb began working on video productions while a student at Northwood Temple School and now runs a video production group in Fayetteville. He had a lot of help from professionals and top-flight digital technology.
