@hollowthefilm’s mascot -The Keez- celebrating our recent support by @TribecaFilmIns in Welch, West Virginia!
I edited this short piece last night. Josh Clevenger, 16, is the mascot at Riverview High School. The Iaeger resident believes that the young people in McDowell County will be a part of improving the area for the future. Hollow is comprised of 50 documentary shorts that share the viewpoints of a community fighting for their “home” while adapting to population loss and stereotyping. The portraits will live on an interactive website that will be launched in April 2013.
I interviewed Ed Shephard back in August in his hometown of Welch, West Virginia. He talks about the changes he has seen over the past four decades and what he thinks the future holds for McDowell County.
