A Memorial Day Video Remembrance
Here’s a video in remembrance of the men and women who have given — and who continue to give — their lives to preserve and protect the freedom each of us enjoy. I shot and produced this one in 2002, and am proud to post it here.
That’s friend, fellow blogger and hand model Jan Lynn reciting “In Flanders Fields” in the opening narration. You can select a high resolution version of this (the “watch in high quality” setting) on my YouTube channel.
Production Notes: That beautiful a capella spiritual in Part Two of the video is “Sometime in the Fire,” composed by Dan Portis-Gathers. It is available under license from FirstCom Music. The flag and the long background tracking shot were taped at the Los Angeles National Military Cemetery, which borders the 405 freeway just north of Wilshire Boulevard. The “A” roll footage came from The Library of Congress American Memory Project and other Public Domain sources.
