producing documentaries. Our first, Letters To Defiance
, won an Honorable Mention when it premiered at the 2005 ReelHeART International Film Festival in Toronto. It also won 2 Telly Awards and is currently showing on WBGU-PBS.
Our next film, In Times of War: Ray Parker
, had its world premiere at the 2007 Durango Independent Film Festival where it won a Jury Commendation Award; it has since gone on to win 6 “Best Documentary Short" awards, and an Audience Choice Award at the 2012 Sedona International Film Festival. Our third documentary, Wings of Silver: The Vi Cowden Story
, has won a total of 11 awards, including 5 Audience Choice Awards.
We're continuing to capture new stories for the In Times of War Documentary Project
, and have 17 amazing interviews with WWII veterans already recorded. These courageous men and women are dying at the average rate of 740 a day, and it's an honor for us to preserve their stories.
All of our projects thus far are self funded, using our savings and all of our spare time, but it is worth it! Our reward is the creation of documentaries that touch so many people, and open them up to a world they might never have otherwise known. One thing I especially love is that each project is done by only Christine and myself, and not a huge production company.
with "Robert Shields: My Life As A Robot"
, we're having the time of our lives expanding our versatility in the area of biographical documentaries. Robert Shields has, literally, gotten us up off our seats and out into a whole new world of art and action!
