We've been really busy here at Plumgood Productions but we promise to get on top of the blog postings this year. There was a lot of travel last year and 2014 looks like it's going to be a big one for us. Keep your fingers crossed and cheers to the new year!

Here are some of the productions that we've been working on this month.

 This month started of with a short fashion film shoot and edit with the fabulous Nikki. We produced 2 pieces for an event she was hosting. Footage was shot on our Red Scarlet.

We are currently in production on the documentary, The Soul of Athens: A History of the Morton Theatre. Here are two of our interviews this month.

Conoly Hester:

Conoly talked with us about her time covering the modern history and historic impact of the Morton as a newspaper reporter.

Betty Holston:

Betty told us what it was like to be on the committee that helped to revitalized the Morton.

Our big purchase! We are setting up a Grip/lighting trailer. This 6x10 trailer will be used on location as a mobile work station and a 1/2 ton truck. The trailer will be operational and ready for assignment in February. We are very excited about the addition of this trailer which will allow us to handle major productions without the need to rent gear.

Before the Memories Fade, DVD's On Sale!

We are proud to announce the official release of one the most insightful documentaries on the Civil Rights Movement. This national and internationally award winning film may be ordered here for $18.00 per DVD.

Before the Memories Fade

Directed by award winning filmmaker Keith B. Plummer
Before the Memories Fade: Voices from the Civil Rights 

Movement is a one of a kind film that brings together the brilliance and bravery of both iconic participants and everyday foot soldiers in our Civil Rights Movement. An extraordinarily wide variety of movement participants such as Rep. John Lewis, Rep. Eleanor Holmes-Norton, Dr. Dorothy Height, Dr. Benjamin Hooks, Marion Barry and Rev. Walter Fountroy were interviewed, along with students, community organizers, musicians, and journalists. Everyone gives his or her unique insight into some of the inner workings, moods, and strategies that made the civil rights movement a success and provided our nation with a moral center.

With so many of our beloved and our unknown movement volunteers approaching their 50th
anniversary of civil rights leadership and participation, Before the Memories Fade will likely be the last compilation of these American heros to reflect on and share their knowledge of what it was like to change the South, the Country, and the world in the 1950s, 1960s and beyond.

Awards for Before the Memories Fade

Good news has come in. Our documentary, Before the Memories Fade: Voices from the Civil Rights Movement, has won national and international industry awards. We have received a Gold Aurora Award and 2 Bronze Telly Awards for the film.

We are very excited about these prestigious recognitions.

Shoot in L.A

March 20th I flew out to L.A. contracted to shoot interviews for 2 days with one of my steady clients, Sara from the University of Kentucky.  I'm not producing this project so I met the producer Stuart out there. Stuart came down from Toronto to work and man did we. We shot 6-7 45 minute interviews a day in the same room. Stuart and I pushed, pulled, remodeled and grabbed every possible look that room could have.

During the shoot on the last day I saw what seemed like a shadow of talons coming down behind our 24th floor curtain to the window. Then there was a thump.

When I investigated this is what I saw. A vulture. That stopped the shoot for a minute as everyone took picture and felt grateful we were inside and not out there with him

Just before flying back home I was able to catch up with an old friend and cameraman buddy Martin from the old news days in D.C. It was good to catch up.

Athens, Georgia Screening

I'm going to have to become a better blogger. I'm months behind and trying to catch up this weekend. Sorry! Here are some pictures from the Athens, Georgia screening of Before the Memories Fade, on February 28th. I screened the film at the Historic Morton Theatre. There is more to come about the Morton Theatre on a later post. 

 Athens had a great crowd and we held a Q&A after the screening. Two of the featured subjects in the film, Frank Williams and Sidney Boney spoke to the audience about their time in the Movement. I also fielded questions on the process of making the film and the experience of meeting these historic and unknown figures in history. It's always great to have a good Q&A.

University of Richmond

On February 17th I had the honor of screening my documentary at the University of Richmond for the Oliver Hill Scholars program for Black History Month. I had a very nice time and the audience was very receptive. 

After the screening there was a question and answer period which had great participation and response. I truly enjoy listening to the college students as they tell how they connected with the film.

This was one of the information screens the day of the event. It's always nice to see your name up in lights. : )
