Birmingham, AL – Bright House Networks announced that it will sponsor On The Set Summer Film Camp’s student-produced and directed movie, “SAFEHOUSE.” On The Set Summer Film Camp, which is celebrating its 5th Anniversary of training youth in the industry of filmmaking, will welcome Wendy Raquel Robinson as its 2012 celebrity mentor. Robinson will star in the short film and offer her expertise in all elements of filmmaking while participating in the program.
Robinson is best known for her roles as high school principal Regina Grier on the WB sitcom The Steve Harvey Show, and as sports agent Tasha Mack on the CW/BET comedy-drama The Game. Born in Los Angeles, Robinson attended Howard University, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drama. She made her acting debut in 1993 on an episode of Martin. That same year she guest-starred in episodes of Thea and The Sinbad Show. In 1995, Robinson co-starred on the NBC sitcom Minor Adjustments, starring Rondell Sheridan. The following year she won the role of Regina “Piggy” Grier in the sitcom The Steve Harvey Show which aired for six seasons on The WB Television Network. After the series ended its run in 2002, she appeared on the sketch comedy series Cedric the Entertainer Presents. Robinson also made guest appearances on The Parkers, All of Us, and The New Adventures of Old Christine. Robinson has also appeared in several films including The Walking Dead (1995), A Thin Line Between Love and Hate (1996), Ringmaster (1998), Two Can Play That Game (2001) and Rebound (2005).
This year’s camp, headquartered at the Birmingham Civil Right Institute, will run from July 11-21. Areas in downtown Birmingham will be utilized for shooting locations. Interested students can register for the program on June 23rd at the Sheraton Civic Center Medical Forum Building (RM D) from 9 a.m. to 12 noon.
“This is a monumental year for us. When we pitched the idea for this program five years ago, we were faced with numerous challenges and non-believers. Every year we’ve grown and we even have kids to come from other states to participate,” said David Tucker, Jr., Founder and Executive Director of On The Set Film Camp. “Bright House Networks, our Platinum Sponsor, and primary resource were key elements to our success.”
