T-63 Days and Counting...The Artists Behind the TQ Project

2011 – Last 100 Days
T-63 Days To Go
29 October 2011

Goal:  1 hour per day working on the film
Digitized 2009 footage from my trip to Indiana to interview Michael Morwood for the TQ Project. I also got some great footage of the Notre Dame campus.

I also digitized footage from an interview I shot of TQ at St. kateri Takewitha in Poquoson.  There was a lot of good footage of the church, as well as TQ’s explanation of how faith influences architcture. 

I talked about artwork by Lester Yocum , and I have to mention Jesse Wieman, who did the TQ as Superman picture you see above, which is his interpretation of the newspaper photo.  He also did a great picture of TQ I will post up soon.  I’m going to twist his arm and have him do at least one more painting for the movie.
