As many of you know I've been working on a video about the University of Houston and the city of Houston during World War II. My partner in crime (or co-producer/director in film speak) Kathy and I have finally allowed it to be released. This is a soft release, meaning that we have given a non-distribution copy to a few lucky souls.
It was a hit!
At least at the university and it turns out that the film was good enough to be picked up by the local PBS station. In fact, they loved it and after a little music editing will be aired in March or April on next year. that's right, our film will hit the big time or as big time a public television is. What this means to you is that I can't let you all see the full video yet. When it airs I will be sure that you all have the link, that is if you are interested.
What I can give you is a little sample of the video. So here is the first 5 minutes as a teaser. If you make it full screen, sorry, about the fuzziness. I had to compress the file into a format that Blogger would accept.
I was recently called a filmmaker by someone that actually makes films. That felt really strange but that strangeness won't stop me from putting it on my resume.
