“We hope Virginians from all walks of life, and all parts of the state will add their stories to ‘Virginia Voices.' Our goal is to produce a film that captures the great diversity of our commonwealth."
Paul A. Levengood, president and chief executive officer
The Virginia Historical Society is stepping into the world of film, through a new project called “Virginia Voices." Virginians are urged to submit their short videos to virginiavoices.org. Uploading is simple and quick and every submission will be promptly acknowledged.
“Virginia Voices” will be a 25-minute short made up of crowdsourced video that will be filmed and submitted by regular citizens. The VHS will assemble the videos into a single narrative and give audiences an overview of the commonwealth, its people and their stories. The film is a fully-funded project of the VHS’s wider Story of Virginia Campaign, a $38 million effort that will expand, enhance and renew the Society’s presence both in Virginia and across the nation.
“Virginia Voices” will premiere at the Virginia Historical Society in the fall of 2014 and is being produced by Jeff Boedeker and BPI.
Are you interested in learning more about the film? Join us for one of our public meetings.
Come to our public meeting on Saturday, June 7th at noon at the Virginia Historical Society. We will show the trailer for the film at noon, and you will have the chance to meet the producer, Jeff Boedeker. Join us and learn how you can be a part of this path-breaking film. You may be invited to attend the red carpet premiere this fall.
