By Roger Weeder First Coast News GLEN ST. MARY, FL -- A Baker County teenager is living a dream and having fun making movies. Joshua Blackmon is just back from Baton Rouge, where his 34-minute feature "The Legend of Petit Jean" had a prime time showing at the Outhouse Film and Video Festival. Blackmon, who is now studying theater at Florida Community College, got interested in movies while a student at Baker High. His friends provided the talent for the movie that Blackmon says was shot over the past four years and is about "a French girl who dies on the mountain and her ghost haunts the mountain." The 19-year-old already is sketching plans for his next movie. Joshua's mother, Jeannette, is proud of her son. "He's either on the computer editing, doing his journal, writing or drawing. You can always find him doing something like that," she said.
