We were on scene at the elegant cocktail party and dinner staged Saturday, July 25, on the grounds of Eileen Slocum's estate -- a fundraiser for the Aquidneck Island Land Trust. We will use some of this footage for background images in the movie and possibly the trailer. Thanks to Jerry Slocum and his sister Margy Quinn, two of Eileen's children, and the folks at the land trust. And if you want to see the trailer and participate in a discussion with the filmmakers about the movie, please come to the Redwood Library on Bellevue Avenue at 4 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 13, for a special afternoon with Eagle Peak Media.
Pictured here from our July 25 shoot: guests arriving at the main gate; the cocktail party with Eileen's mansion in the background; the festively decorated tent before dinner; the crew of Yolanda, Cal and Josh (behind the camera); and yours truly. Photos by Yolanda and me.

We learned this week that the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts has awarded us a production grant for BEHIND THE HEDGEROW. Few documentaries get support from RISCA, so this is a vote of confidence in the artistic merit of the movie. Thanks, RISCA!
Our first grant was awarded in April by the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities.
