Movie shooting in Brown County tackles tough issue of teen suicide


BEEN MADE IN CINCINNATI, BUT
THIS ONE IS SPECIAL. IT DEALS WITH SENSITIVE
SUBJECTS, AND IT’S PERSONAL. MIKE DALY IS A BASEBALL COACH,
AND THESE ARE BASEBA
PLAYERS, BUT THEY ARE NOT
PLAYING A REAL GAME. HE’S DIRECTING A FILM ABOUT ONE
OF HIS ALL TIME FAVORITE
PLAYERS, CHANCE SMITH.>>WE SPENT A HUNDRED DAYS A
YEAR TOGETHE
HE WAS ALWAYS HERE AND CALLED
THIS PLACE HOME. SO HE FELT LIKE IT WAS HIS HOME. SO IT WAS HARD
VANESSA: CHANCE DIED BY SUICIDE
IN 2012, THAT LED DALY AND HIS
WIFE, ACTRESS PAMELA, TO CREATE
THE MOVIE CHANCE, IT DELVES INTO
THE HARD TOPICS. ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING
THINGS WAS THAT WE BROUGHT
AWARENESS TO THIS ISSUE. SO MANY PEOPLE, LOVED ONES OF
THOSE WHO PASSED AWAY, THEY DID
NOT HAVE ANY IDEA THAT THIS WAS
GOING TO HAPPEN. VANESSA: BLUE ASH NATIVE JAKE
HERTZMAN PLAYS THE ROLE OF YOUNG
CHANCE. HE’S LEARNED FROM IT TOO, SINCE
CHANCE’S DEATH WAS IN PART
CAUSED BY CYBER BULLYING.>>ONE OF THE MAIN THINGS WE
NEED TO DO IS HELP TEENAGERS
UNDERSTAND HOW TO HUMANIZE
TECHNOLOGY AND HOW TO HELP THEM
UNDERSTAND THAT THERE’S SOMEONE
ELSE BEHIND THE PHONE. VANESSA: ACTOR MATTHEW MODINE
PLAYS THE ROLE OF COACH MIKE
DALY
THE HOLLYWOOD STAR IS KNOWN FOR
HIS ROLES IN FULL METAL JACK
AND STRANGER THINGS. MODINE SAYS HE SEES SIMILARITIES
BETWEEN CHANCE AND THE RECENT
SUICIDES OF ANTHONY BOURDAIN AND
KATE SPADE ONE NOTABLE
CONNECTION, ALL OF THEM SEEMED
HAPPY BEFORE THEIR DEATH SUCCESS AND GOOD FORTUNE
DON’T SAVE SOMEONE’S LIFE. THERE’S A DARKNESS IN SOME
PEOPLE, AND WE HAVE TO DO WHAT
WE CAN TO ALLEVIATE THAT
DARKNESS. VANESSA: FILMING SHOULD WRAP UP
BY THE END OF THE MONTH AND AS
FAR AS A RELEASE DAT
