Dawn Anna - Its a Wrap! Canucks Make Movie History!

Lifetime's New Movie Monday kicks off 2005 with the premiere of Dawn Anna, the inspirational true story of a beloved volleyball coach and single mother who learns she must undergo brain surgery. With steel will, determination and the love of her family and students, Dawn prevails—showing that beauty and life can outshine the darkness of despair. The Lifetime Original Movie stars Debra Winger (Terms of Endearment) as the dynamic heroine who turns tragedy into triumph.
Dawn Anna was a teacher and volleyball coach at Columbine High School.  Her daughter was killed in the Columbine shootings, and her story of faith and courage was filmed as the movie "Dawn Anna", which aired on TV in January 2005. A number of Canucks club volleyball players were involved in the filming of the movie in Calgary, Alberta, which was a great opportunity to see the film industry up close. A wrap up party was held at the Volleydome where the cast and crew (including the star of the movie, Debra Winger) played volleyball with and against the Canucks players.
25 Canuck athletes participated in the movie that was shot at Crescent Heights High School in Calgary this past summer (Vball scenes).  Barry McLean (Canucks coach) was lucky enough to play a role in the movie as a guest coach. More important was that one of our athletes, Quinn Singer landed a major role in the film, playing Lauren the daughter of Dawn Anna who was the captain of the Columbine High School team and who was one of the students killed in the shooting.
Another Canuck, Christie Hamilton (Tall Girl) also landed a small part in the film. Watch for close ups of Canuck Liz Cyfra who repeated a number of the specific volleyball shots that the director needed to establish the dynamics of the game.
Barry worked with Debra Winger through July helping her with all of the volleyball preparation and worked closely on set with the Director Arliss Howard setting up the scenes. It was a great experience....
