1 Minute in Appalachia: Video Series

1minpromo_square

  Over the next couple months I will be adding to a series of microshort films (1-2 minutes) that focus on observing life in Appalachia. The footage from the series was shot in 2012 while I was filming for Hollow, an interactive documentary about the residents of McDowell County, West Virginia. From May to September, I filmed seven terabytes of footage in the coalfields.

Many of the interesting moments and awesome people I met did not make it into the interactive doc so I'm happy to find a new home for these people and places in this series. You can expect to observe church services, front-porch haircuts, residents wandering through abandoned buildings, riding on golf carts with the elderly, tent revivals and moments at home. I am very excited to share some of these slices of life with you.

You can view the first five shorts and read my artist statement here. Enjoy and stay tuned.

What an honor to be able to present Hollow alongside Barbara Kopple and “Harlan County, USA.” Interesting discussion all made possible by the awesome work of Sean Flynn and Ben Fowlie at Camden International Film Festival and the Points North Documentary Forum.
