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.

Projection Tests

We're on countdown. 14 business days until the Premier screening. Here testing the Blu Ray projection on the wall. It's always very interesting to see your hard work so large in scale after looking at it for years on an editing monitor or 50 inch plasma.

We have a few more checks but it's looking good. Can't wait to hear what you think.
