It’s been a busy summer, folks. Back in June, I moved to the great city of Durham, and also got to assist as set photographer on an Our State shoot for UNC-TV featuring MAD Magazine illustrator Rich Powell, who wrote a delightful blog post about our visit! Rich’s illustrations will appear in a short documentary about Andy Griffith’s classic monologue, “What It Was, Was Football.” Later that month, I was asked to produced a weekly Youtube advice series for therapist and motivational speaker Bonnie Barnett, whose book Bobo’s Daughter tells her incredible story. That series, titled Here’s the Deal, is currently in the pre-production stage.
The next episode of Lushington’s Lounge will be filmed a week from this Saturday (we had a bit of a hiatus during Emmett’s move to a new house, but all is well), and will feature more curious cocktails and puppet antics. Speaking of which, we were featured in this great News and Observer article, along with a recipe for the Delilah, one of Emmett’s favorite drinks!
In July, I filmed yet another fantastic dance event for The Moving Humans collective, which you can check out here. Thanks to hot weather, the sound from all the fans/air conditioning proved to be a challenge, but the dance pieces are still a treat to watch!
Lastly, if you tune in to Our State on UNC-TV (PBS) tonight at 8pm, you’ll see a rebroadcast of the documentary I produced and edited for my job last summer, “Poems for Everyone.” If you miss the broadcast, you can also watch the embedded version on this website by going to the “TV” page, or visiting video.unctv.org.
Thanks for following, and keep watching for more news!
