John O'Leary on the On Fire Movie set

John O’Leary records a special episode from the On Fire movie set, answering YOUR questions and sharing behind-the-scenes stories! 

For the past five weeks, I’ve had the pleasure to work alongside hundreds of talented producers, stunt coordinators, set designers, production assistants, boom operators, award-winning actors, makeup artists… and so many other crucial contributors in bringing a feature-length film to life.

Today, as we’re just two days from calling “it’s a wrap!” on filming of the On Fire movie, I invite you to join me in reflecting on some of the most incredible moments. We’ll delve into behind-the-scenes stories, answer questions from our vibrant and loyal Live Inspired community, and provide you with a front-row seat to the magic of filmmaking. Yes, you heard it right – I recorded this episode right from the heart of the action on the set!

My friends, I promised to bring you along for the ride, and today, you get an exclusive glimpse into the making of the On Fire movie.
