It's a VERY good thing that Amanda Lipitz listened to her mother who works at the Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women. Amanda, with cameras in tow, ended up making her feature filmmaking debut with the documentary "Step," by following the lives of three members of the step team at the predominately African-American school.
