I've been registered on the D-Word for a couple of weeks and figured I should introduce myself. I live in Lexington, Kentucky, where I pick up what documentary work I can, although of late that's become very rare around here. But you must know all about that wherever you are so I'll leave it. Otherwise, the place does have its charms, I suppose.
I have made two documentaries myself: "Rock That Uke" (co-director, editor, camera) and "...damn bad oyster: The Times of William Goebel, governor" (producer, director, writer, editor). The former is a meditation on life, death, love, hate, art, frustrated ambition...what you'd expect. Oh, and the ukulele. Especially if it's amplified and distorted. Yeah, it's kinda funny. The latter is a historical project that airs regularly on KET (the state PBS affiliate). It tell the story of a violent, raucous decade (the 1890s) in Kentucky that culminates in assassination and political upheaval. It's quite funny. One review called it "drolly informative." What higher praise could I wish for.
This will do for now; don't want to wear out my welcome first time out. If anyone's needs help on anything in Kentucky, let me know. I have some gear (and I travel). Or if anyone's passing through and needs a drink, I can provide that too.
