    This past Saturday I filmed a tent revival in War, West Virginia, led by Brother Steve Jones. The service was very lively and drew people in from across McDowell County. I am interviewing Jones this Wednesday to get a better understanding of his mission and following up with several of the attendees to talk about their experience.

    New Doc Series on Mountain Traditions →


    Each film will be short–fourteen minutes max. Collectively they will be called The Mountain Traditions Project. According to a write-up onAppalachian Independent, the films will follow area residents who are keeping mountain traditions alive. They include a dulcimer player, a metalworker, a quilter, a group of homesteaders, and kayakers. The music for the films was also composed and performed by Appalachian musicians.
