        On March 25th the Great American Wheat Harvest documentary film, produced by ConjoStudios, LLC, made it’s national debut in Washington, D.C. A crowd of about 250 people gathered at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian on a snowy Tuesday morning for a celebration of this film on National Ag Day; the film screening was an official part of the National Ag Day festivities. All of the harvesting crews featured in the film, and even one wheat farmer and his family were able to attend the premiere along with many of the film’s sponsors.
   

         After working on this project for nearly four years, Producer and Director, Conrad Weaver, President of ConjoStudios, LLC, was relieved and excited to begin sharing his film with the world. “It’s thrilling to see so many people come out to view this film. It’s been such huge project, and I’ve invested so much time, energy, and resources into it, so I’m excited that people want to see the finished product,” says Weaver.
       
         The crowd’s reaction to the film was fun to watch. There was laughter at some of the lines, especially when custom harvester Jim Deibert said that people ask him if he wants to go to Vegas. His response, “Hell, no. I do enough gambling all Summer, why do I want to go to Vegas and gamble?”  And other parts of the movie brought people to tears like when Jenna Zeorian talks about her struggle to decide to NOT go on harvest. At the end of the film the crowd rose to it’s feet for a standing ovation.
       
         “I was deeply moved and humbled to receive this type of recognition,” says Weaver.  “However, It’s the harvesters and farmers who really need the standing ovation! They are the ones who take the risks each year, so that the rest of us can eat.”
       
         One individual commented after he viewed the film that he will never look at a loaf of bread the same again, realizing now what all goes into producing it.  Another tweeted, “The Great American Wheat Harvest film captivated me from the first words…to the very last word! Awesome documentary! Phenomenal footage.”
       
         Following the national premiere in Washington, DC, the film was shown to a sold-out theater in Lincoln, Nebraska where it again received many compliments!  The first public showing of the film took place later that same week at the Midwest Theater in Scottsbluff, NE and is currently showing in independent theaters in Kansas.
       
         The film opens in 15 theaters in the midwest the week of May 12.   Weaver comments, “The general public needs to see this film. Harvesters and farmers already know what goes on during harvest, and they are excited to see it, and we’re glad they come!  But it’s the public who doesn't know or understand agriculture who’s the target audience we’re hoping to reach. We’ve already submitted it to several film festivals and theaters, and are looking for other venues to show it as well.”  
       
         After the film shows in theaters and makes its rounds in festivals, it will be broadcast on RFD-TV in early November, and will then be released on DVD and BLU-RAY which will contain footage, interviews, and extra content that does not appear in the film. There has also been considerable interest in the film from people in Ireland, England, and Australia. Plans are to release it world-wide via an on-line distribution site such as iTunes and Amazon.com.    
       
         Weaver and his team are currently raising funds to be able to make this world-wide distribution possible. Anyone interested in sponsorship opportunities in the distribution of the film should contact Jody Lamp or Melody Dobson for more information at 406-698-9675 or info@GreatAmericanWheatHarvest.com.

    Just wanted to pass this information along for production personnel.  There is a place in the DC area where you can find a customized case for cameras, tripods, lighting, audio equipment or just about anything you can think of when working out in the field.  Located in Northern Virginia in the high-technology Dulles corridor approximately 25 miles west of Washington DC, Dulles Case Center is located next to Dulles Airport. Customers are welcome to stop by the store and get hands-on assistance to select the right case for their application.  Several models of Pelican and Storm brand cases are kept in stock.  Other services are offered such as custom cut foam inserts for added protection and organization.  There are CAD design engineers on staff to design the ideal custom insert.  Customers will receive a 3D drawing and quotation for custom cut foam.  Dulles Case Center will also cut new foam inserts for cases that customers may already have.  Anyone is welcome to drop by anytime between 8:00 - 5:00pm M-F.  http://www.dullescasecenter.com

    TIVA's program on "The Killer App for Video," got a late start when two presenters experienced vehicle troubles, but that didn't make the evening any less informative for the 25 professionals who gathered on October 4th at of Boston University's Center for Digital Imaging Arts (CDIA) in Georgetown.

    It soon became apparent that there was way too much information for such a format, but a lot of us got some great ideas  Highlights are listed below, but we encourage everyone to offer comments and suggestions.

    Director of Photography Alex Ibrahim and Director Ishu Krishna shared some of their personal favorites and professional stock photographer Robert Giroux demonstrated easy release, an app he wrote to streamline the process of obtaining appearance and location releases. 

    While there are a lot of free apps to choose from, there is a real advantage to many of the paid products.

    Here's a brief summary of the apps presented.  Most are available through the iTunes store or Google Play.  Please feel free to comment and add your own suggestions.

    Double R Productions (www.doublerproductions.com ) marked the first month of its 25th anniversary year with President and Owner Rosemary Reed’s Filmmaker of the Month award from the District of Columbia Office of Motion Picture and Television Development.

    “On our 25th anniversary year, I’m so honored,” Reed said. “Double R has had such a great working relationship with the DC Film Office over the years. We really appreciate the recognition.” Founded in 1987, Double R Productions has served clients as varied as major national newspapers, Fortune 500 companies, the US government, associations, corporations, local arts organizations, and many nonprofits. The communications and television production company produces mini documentaries for its clients under tight deadlines on a regular basis.

    Double R projects include public service announcements, original programming, client image pieces, video news releases, and commercials. Additional services are media training and interactive video training projects.

    Reed established her reputation in DC working for the FOX network as the executive producer of “Panorama,” the nation’s longest-running, live, daily talk show with Maury Povich. She also created Double R’s original program “Gospelrobics,” last aired on the PBS affiliate WHUT-TV. Since the mid-80s, Reed has produced and directed the National Association of Broadcasters’ Congressional PSA Program. She has served as a producer, director, and writer all over the world, winning numerous awards for her work including a local Emmy for writing and producing on a broadcast special for the AFL-CIO. Her pieces have been recognized through awards from CINE, National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, American Women in Radio & Television, United Press International, Associated Press, and the National Education Association.

    The DC Film Office launched the Filmmaker of the Month initiative to elevate the national and international profile of the city’s most talented filmmakers. Reed’s media experience both in front of the camera and behind the scenes, academic background in theatre and speech, plus teaching experience on the high school and college levels sets her apart from other professionals in the media industry, the DC Film Office said.
