"Owego Still" is a short documentary film funded by the federal 'Preserve America' Grant. Owego, NY is one of only 1,500 nationally recognized Preserve America Communities.

This was a collaborative effort among the Preserve America Grant Committee of Owego, the Village of Owego, NY, Binghamton University, Broome County Community College, and The Loft Presents.

The Preserve America Grant allowed us an excellent opportunity to create a short film that features beautiful footage of the village's historic structures and public spaces that have been preserved and saved through
the diligent efforts of individual homeowners, civic groups, business owners, and local government.

Through re-purposing or "recycling" of aging buildings, Owego has become a travel attraction for heritage tourists. A prime example of this re-purposing is Owego's old jail house that held prisoners over 100 years ago, and has recently been transformed into an upscale eatery where restaurant guests can dine in refurbished "cells".

This film-making exercise taught us a lot, and allowed us to connect with members of a great community that we would have otherwise never have met.

Original score by Jim Glasgow @ TLP. It came out great!
