There are two items of note that I would like to share today, both are in regards to museums. Last week my partner Clint Ross and I received a request from the good folks at the Confederate Relic Room Museum in Columbia SC, who wanted to add our movie to their exhibits. Needless to say we granted them permission and they changed the museum’s entry exhibit from a WWI film to ours. Now every visitor entering the CRRM will see “The Angel of Marye’s Heights” running in a loop. As soon as I get a photo of the exhibit, I will post more detail over on the movie’s blog. BTW: Right Stripe Media has been working pre-production for our next project and I will share the details in a future post.
Yesterday The Free Lance-Star published an Op-Ed on behalf of the National Civil War Life Foundation. Many of you know that I sit on the board and handle the NCWLF’s website. Over the last 3 years we have had our share of ups and downs while trying to establish a new museum in the Fredericksburg/Spotsylvania area. Our primary goal as of now is simply establishing a venue. We have a collection of over 2,000 items and no place to share it with the public. Hopefully this letter will generate some support. You can read our statement here.
