The official launch event for Documentary Northfield took place January 12, 2017 at the weekly meeting of the Northfield Rotary Club. As a member of the club, I felt that it would be the best place to introduce the new organization and show some clips from 2016 productions. I’m happy to say that the clips (Rain on Mars, The Chemo Blues and Art Plus Heart) and the plans for 2017 production were well received.
We are still waiting on our friends at Twin Cities Public Television to accept Rain on Mars for a run on their Minnesota Channel. They seem inclined to do so, but final approval has not yet happened. I’ll keep you updated as things progress. As you can see elsewhere on the site, they have, and continue to, broadcast two of our major productions (Harvest and Genesis).
We have several projects on tap for the first quarter of 2017. In particular, we are creating a short documentary for the Northfield Arts Guild, and two performances we filmed for Artmakers here in Northfield. We are also filming local musician Rafi Dworsky as he prepares to upload them to a new YouTube channel he’s creating. Once completed, we will include links to his remarkable work.
Barbara and I will be off to Florida for the month of February. Once I return, I’ll start work on The Legacy of John and Ann North and the Seeds Farm documentary project. A busy year ahead for Documentary Northfield.
