Muscle Shoals | Director Greg “Freddy” Camalier

[PREMIERE SCREENING: Saturday, Jan. 26, 3:30pm — Eccles Theatre, Park City]

What I had to sacrifice to make Muscle Shoal was being there for my children. I am a single father of two awesome boys. They need me and I need them. They are my most precious blessing and they make my life rich. They miss me when I’m gone and I miss them. Gone for them isn’t just me being away on a shoot, it’s being at the office late at night trying to make a deadline or trying to press ahead hard when the inspiration is flowing. It’s having to write emails or calls when I am at home instead of being present. It makes them sad and it upsets me deeply that I sometimes let them down. But making this film was my dream and sometimes in life you have to follow your dreams–and still be a Dad.
