    Looking for richmond area volunteers 5:30-6:15 pm Wed. 3/2/11 for documentary

    I need your help this coming Wednesday evening, March 2nd, from around 5:30 till 6:15 PM at the Virginia War Memorial, 621 S. Belvidere Street, Richmond. (see directions and map here - http://www.vawarmemorial.org/memorial/directions/ or
    http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&sa...h&z=16&iwloc=A )


    I need folks who are willing to be individually videotaped saying "I am Virginia" for part of a documentary. It will not be necessary to state your name or say anything else. It should take less than a minute for the actual videotaping, but I noted a block of time that we will be there getting everyone who shows up videotaped.

    Please RSVP back to me by no later than Tuesday evening at 6 PM so I can let the camera guy know if we can do this.

    BTW, OC is permitted at the War Memorial.

    Thanks for considering coming out to do this.

    stay safe.

    So come on over as soon as you are finished. You'll have a beautiful smile to show off.

    stay safe.

    I'll Try

    I'd love to do this but the drive from DC is a killer at that time of day. Besides, you may not want my (damn) Yankee accent saying "I am Virginia!" Can we email video of us at other historic sites? I was thinking of Arlington National Cemetery... Robert E Lee's home btw.

    Email is fine and don't worry about the accent. Everyone has an accent except me
    Email address is:

    Really appreciate your willingness to make a 2-hour+ drive one-way for 10 seconds of fame. And Yam Dankees, come-here's, furriners with strange accents and other folks who now hang their hat in Virginia (or wish they could) would be welcome any time. I'm all of those things and could never fully express how much I appreciate every kindness extended to me in spite of the error I made in not being born here.

    stay safe.

    If you do it there, your video might be of you getting arrested.

    Yep - It was the thread title that got me saying Tuesday.

    Must be multiple choice, but you only get your picture taken on Wednesday.

    I wish I could have made it, but that's a heck of a drive from NOVA. If they're going to be up this way, maybe they could make a second photo-op? There's going to be an OC dinner on the 7th...

    Thanks!
    We had a few show up and I got a usable clip out of it. The audio needs work ...as usual, because of the traffic noise, but the video works.

    This is just a little more personal touch in the Doc and it was good to see Dragonfly, Sidestreet and his son.

    On the bigger scale, I spent most of the day in Surry and came home with a tad over 20 gigs of new video I'm sorting through now.

    Next week I'm going to concentrate on sit down interviews. This is changing so fast I'm having trouble keeping up with the new events.
