    Getting Closer to Launch! Lots of updates, links and news

    The past couple months have been a whirlwind of long hours and exciting payoffs for everyone on the Hollowteam. Here are a couple updates! 

    • Hollow featured in Tribeca Film Institute’s TFI SandboxCheck out the site which features a project homepage, an interview with me about Hollow, an interview with Jeff Soyk and I about the Tribeca/Zeega Hackathon, and many other resources and information about interactive documentary.
    • Hollow featured in “New Digital Storytelling” series in Filmmaker Magazine: The fine folks at the MIT Open Doc Lab asked us to contribute to the series and we’re super excited about the final piece. The series will continue throughout the year!
    • "Beautiful McDowell County" photo exhibit has moved from Charleston to Bramwell, West Virginia: The exhibit, which features photography by Betty Rivard and myself, will open on March 18 at the Coal Heritage Interpretive Center in the Bramwell Depot. The exhibit will be on display through May 11.Tomorrow (Tues. 3/19), an artist reception with Betty Rivard will be held from 5:30-7:30 PM at the depot. 
    • 2013 WVU Short Film Fest: This past weekend I traveled to Morgantown to screen two short pieces fromHollow and take part in a panel discussion about Appalachian identity. It was great to meet Martha Stephens, a talented Appalachian filmmaker and writer/director of Pilgrim Song.
    • Tribeca Film Fest: In late April, we will be attending the Tribeca Film Festival to represent Hollow. I will provide more details closer to the date!
    • SXSW Interactive and Film Festival: Last week, I had the pleasure to serve as a digital media and film mentor at the SXSW film festival in Austin, Texas. The trip was an amazing experience and I was so surprised to meet people who already knew about Hollow. It was also great to be able to meet several of our Kickstarter backers in Austin, including Mike Andrick and Dan Mistich.

    McDowell County is a very patriotic community and tomorrow they will continue their tradition of holding one of the country’s longest ongoing Veterans Day parades in the country.

    And in honor of Veterans Day, we are releasing three short stories from residents in McDowell County. We interviewed over 50 individuals this summer, many of which shared stories of war and returning home after. Today we would like to share three of those from Ellis Ray Williams, Ed Shepard and Bill Bolt. 

    Ellis Ray Williams shares his experience as an African American soldier in WWII. 

    Ed Shepard talks about his time as a sniper in the Marine Corps and his return home to Welch.

    Bill Bolt talks about returning to Coalwood from three years in the Navy, meeting the love of his life and watching his community change.

    The stories can all be experienced on Cowbird!

    Please watch and share with your friends as we pay respect to our Veterans!
