At the beginning of this year, I sat down and wrote out a timeline for myself, with all the deadlines for all the projects I knew about at the time. I’m just going to copy and paste it into this post and make a few editorial modifications. Sort of a public notice to myself that I have a lot of catching up to do after my three hospitalizations in 2016. With luck and perseverance I will wrap up Don’t Give Up Your Day Job (begun in 2009) and complete three other films this year.

But first, check out the film I made with Edinboro art professor and Erie mayoral candidate Lisa Austin. Focusing on the McBride Viaduct on the city’s east side, the film shows how Erie is cut in two by railroad tracks and sewn back together by street-level crossings, over- and underpasses.

The Trouble With Poets, my hour-long broadcast documentary about a community of poets in my Rust Belt hometown, is now available on DVD, Although the focus is local, the poetry is universal, and the film has widespread appeal. You can order a copy here for $10 plus shipping.
