University of Richmond

On February 17th I had the honor of screening my documentary at the University of Richmond for the Oliver Hill Scholars program for Black History Month. I had a very nice time and the audience was very receptive. 

After the screening there was a question and answer period which had great participation and response. I truly enjoy listening to the college students as they tell how they connected with the film.

This was one of the information screens the day of the event. It's always nice to see your name up in lights. : )

Before the Memories Fade, ATL Screening 1/16/13

We had a great night screening in Atlanta! Nothing but complements streamed from the audience during the Q&A.  Two of the featured foot soldiers came out to see it and one even teared up. As a director it always makes you feel good when your film connects with the audience.

Top billing on the marquee is always nice! Thank you Plaza Theatre staff. Atlanta! See you soon!

National Press Club Date Scheduled

We will be holding a news conference on the film, Before the Memories Fade: Voices from the Civil Rights Movement, September 25th at noon at the National Press Club.

This will be the first national publicity for the movie. What a nice venue to begin our journey.

Personally this is a huge event for me considering the 18 plus years I spent covering various news conferences as a cameraman for a Washington D.C. news bureau.

It will be different being on the other side of those cameras and microphones while being the focus of the national news media.

I'm looking forward to it.

Fox 5 TV Appearance Lined Up

I am scheduled to appear on the Fox 5 Morning Show on September 26th with host Allison Seymour. It will be great to get the word out about the movie and have fun with some of my old D.C. news friends.

My segment is scheduled to go on at 9:15 so set your recorders if you can't watch it live.
