From Moves stage Screen Glen

Glen Burnie resident Sharee Harris has made a whirlwind move from stage to big screen.

Harris’ play “What If”, which ran at Anne Arundel Community College for about two weeks in October, will debut at a red carpet and black tie premier April 7 at Hoyt’s, 1591 W. Nursery Road.

Harris, the producer and writer of the play, said one of the 11 cast members is a cinematographer, a connection which enabled her to move directly into filming after the play ended.

“It takes place on a college campus, with college students going through different things in life,” Harris said. “When they are going through some heavy-hitting stuff, they are left having to ask the question ‘what if — what if I did this, what would be different?’”

The film features life-changing events, including many things that happen on college campuses. Harris said some people get help and some don’t — sometimes with dire consequences.

The film took five months to complete, which Harris said had much to do with trying to coordinate the schedules of the actors. All actors are from the area, including Washington, D.C., Prince Georges County and Anne Arundel County. Harris said she funded the movie herself.

“I didn’t know what I was doing at first, but I learned a great deal about how to produce a movie,” Harris said, noting she sometimes looked to Google for instructions and ideas.

“There were so many people around me with so much passion, and that actually helped. Everything that goes into making something great — even with having a vision — had to be put to life.”

Harris said the struggle made her more patient and accepting of challenges. She said a production is nothing without great writing. Among those who inspire her are Tyler Perry, Zane, David E. Talbert and Shonda Rhimes.

Harris said her life is different than she expected when she began college as a biology pre-med major. The Meade High School and Bowie State graduate said she is working on her Master’s degree in administration. She teaches behavior, but ultimately would like to make cinema her full-time job.

In the fall, Harris said she will travel to Atlanta to promote her production. She’s already got part two in the works, as well as a second movie, “Can’t Live With, Can’t Live Without ‘Em”.

Doors will open at 4:30 p.m. The movie will begin at 5:30 p.m. Cost is $25 and includes the showing, popcorn and a drink, as well as admission to the after-party with light fare, champagne toast and a meet-and-greet.
