CandiceQ: How has the meaning of “Behind the Scenes” changed for you since becoming a VIP Tour Guide?

Becoming a VIP Tour Guide has helped me see things differently–I now have a much stronger understanding, and therefore appreciation, for the effort that goes into putting a show or film together.

A: We are about to have the greatest day of all time.  Finally the group I can unleash all of my powers on!

Q: It’s no secret that you love film history, what began this interest?

A: My parents are definitely the root of it.  Turner Classic Movies first started when I was pretty young, and we got it when it launched.  From that point on, classic films were primary viewing in the Collins household.
