This morning met with an editor in College Park then to the National Archives to meet Edward Hilbert and Craig Herron to research photographs of the Hungarian Revolution. It’s good to have Edward with us. His experience in the revolution makes him an authority for Craig and I to reference.
Using a list we made from the script of all the photos we needed, we found some terrific shots of freedom fighters, tanks, bombed buildings, protestors, cityscapes, landscapes … now if we can only figure out the copyright issues. (Some are public domain, some are not. License to use the copyrighted photos may cost a pretty penny.)
Re: The Jewish Times
The interview with Deborah Walike went very well. She called me, Edward, and Craig individually from New York. She was one of the more refreshingly competent journalists I’ve spoken with. She seemed genuinely intrigued about “Freedom Dance” and interested in our production journey. I got the sense that the article will be very supportive! The fact that she interviewed three of us from the production should make the article more in-depth. (It was originally to be published April 15th, but now I hear you can look for it May 6th.)
