This series was produced for the Scenic Byways division of our state's transportation agency. Nine different places around the state were selected to be part of this program. I was able to hire my favorite crew which includes a highly skilled videographer and lighter, an audio engineer and a grip. It was spread over three years and most certainly the most engaging of all my video writing and directing assignments!
