    In August 2013, Bowdoin College hosted "The Afterlife of the American Civil War," a four-day series of lectures, demonstrations, exhibitions, and music presented in commemoration of the Civil War's sesquicentennial celebration. Bowdoin has many important connections to the Civil War through eminent alumni, faculty, and other historical figures associated with the College—including Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain (class of 1852), Oliver Otis Howard (class of 1850), William Pitt Fessenden (class of 1823), and Harriet Beecher Stowe, who began writing "Uncle Tom’s Cabin" while her husband was a Bowdoin professor. The Alumni College event, which focused on Bowdoin's involvement in the post-war years, included lectures by Bowdoin faculty and alumni. In this lecture, Bowdoin Associate Professor of History Patrick Rael, a specialist in African-American History who regularly teaches courses on the Civil War and Reconstruction, including the popular course "The Civil War in Film," discusses Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain and other Bowdoin alumni who fought in the Civil War.

      Another David Barton lie from Glenn Beck's show. Barton butchers an 1809 letter from John Adams to Benjamin Rush to make it appear that Adams thought that all governments, including, of course, the government of the United States, must be administered by the Holy Ghost in order to be legitimate.

          A segment I worked heavily on at BYU Independent Study. I was the main camera operator and assistant DP, along with some great work by David Bisson. We shot mostly on a Panasonic HVX-200. I did the scoring (using omnimusic.com licenses) and sound cleaning, as well as editing, color correction, visual effects (3D stills, etc...), and other odds and ends. The only VFX I didn't do are the flying dates, done by Jared Moench.

            "The Shiver Shack" tells a story that frees the collective voice of those folks who lived without modern plumbing - real folks who remember it well. Both shocking and hilarious, these old timers delve deep into their memories, telling tales about the outhouse. From the brutal sun to the icy snowstorms and from spiders to snakes, our rugged forefathers and mothers braved all sorts of hazards to answer the call of nature. "The Shiver Shack" presents a folklore study that captures the tone of Americana at its best.
