We just returned from an outstanding weekend at Liberty University. In addition to our screening, which benefitted the National Civil War Chaplains Museum, we also hosted a Q&A panel to share our thoughts on education in regards to documentary filmmaking and how it can be used to preserve our history for the next generation. We had a crowd of hundreds and they were very receptive. Spending the weekend as guests in the Carter Glass Mansion, hanging out with our good friend Richard Williams, and worshipping with Jonathan Falwell at the famous Thomas Road Baptist Church was not a bad deal either. I will be posting a complete recap on our movie’s blog including radio interviews, event video, and plenty of photos over the next week. This positive response to our film continues to grow by leaps and bounds and we could not be more grateful. Check back over the next week and don’t forget about this weekend’s upcoming screening at the University of Mary Washington.
UPDATE: Here is an excerpt from our panel discussion in which our Motion Graphics specialist Darrin Dick discusses the possibilities of using emerging technology to present historical elements that are no longer there. (Video courtesy of Kathleen Warren)
