The Jackson Flat - Documentary

posted Jul 6, 2010, 9:10 PM by Nathan Riddle
In addition to our production on documentaries revolving around the Rendezvous and old Steam Trains, we are pleased to announce that we are also in earnest production on a documentary on the construction of the Jackson Flat Reservoir. What makes this project appealing and a good fit for IAP is the Archaeology surrounding the construction. Archaeologists on site have already found perhaps some of the oldest artifacts in the region. The purpose of the project is to document the historic finds in the area as well as preserve the history of the landscape, and the construction of a large water feature as it is developed. Chronicling the process will be a valuable historical resource to the community and historians in the future. This project will also provide the community with an up close look at the ancient history that is being excavated almost beneath their feet. 

We will be following the process over the next year and will have a final product availible sometime around this time next year.
