    We’re gonna be on TV!

    I know some of you are familiar with the Texas Church Project. There are 5 of us: (me), Lee, Jeremy, photomc, and scootermm. We have been collaborating on shooting old, (mostly) country churches in Texas for the past year and a half. See www.texaschurchproj.com

    When we started the project, we really didn’t know exactly what the end result would be, or how long we would spend at this. But, besides starting to build up a body of work, things have begun to gel for us and actually, we’re a bit busy.

    Yesterday, we spent the day with a film crew from the “Texas Country Reporter”. www.texascountryreporter.com The feature should air sometime in April in all 19 Texas markets. We’ll let you know more specifically when we know. They (the TV people) took quite an interest in the large format cameras – especially scooter’s 7x17 – and the fact that we all use film. We were fascinated by their high tech video gear, and they were fascinated with 20 minute exposures and wooden tripods.

    We were all interviewed on camera by the host. ("Does film have a soul?") It will be interesting to see what sound bites actually make it to the air. :o

    Completely coincidentally, we have an exhibit scheduled for May (thanks to Jeremy). We’ll post more details about this as the time approaches. And (first, but not least) last summer, scooter wrote an article about the project for the online “Large Format Journal”.

    Busy, busy, busy!!!

    We'll all be running the VCRs and DVRs! (I have two VCRs myself ) But, we probably shouldn't get too excited until we actually see the show.

    And, we'll be able to get a DVD of the segment. (DVD copies will also be for sale) As for distribution, we asked about putting the segment on YouTube or the like (the show has some old segments there) and were told that they cannot post any for one year from broadcast due to contractual arrangements with the stations that syndicate the show. (Please - let's not go off on a tangent about whether or not this it true. In the interest of a continued relationship, we'll respect their wishes.)

    But, we'll see what we can do. Sure, we want the world to see it!

    And, we can't help what someone might do themselves ...:rolleyes:

    Guys, I'm not particularly religious; but you are doing the Lord's work with this project, I think. You are giving of yourselves--time, skill, craftsmanship--to a greater good.

    The photographs are just lovely.

    Please accept my applause, and know my appreciation.

    texas stations don't broadcast in my area.

    however, if you can let us know what station and time, i might be able to find someone to make me a copy.

    thanks david

    Congrats guys! Judging from the project website gallery this is well deserved. I'd really like to see it when it's available so maybe a few people can mail off some dvd's and we can forward them on etc..

    This is wonderful! And so very deserved. You can be sure I'll record it! In these parts, when you make "Texas Country Reporter", you have made it big time!
