Part 3 of Niki Dakota's interview with Aaron Rourke
Aaron Rourke returns to Excursions to talk about recent projects underway by Rivers Unlimited, an organization devoted to restoring and preserving rivers throughout the state of Ohio. Rivers Unlimited recently helped efforts to get the Mad River designated as a recreational river with the help of a Dr. Ritter, Wittenberg professor.
Rivers Unlimited will host a screening of Call of the Scenic River at Wittenberg University on July 27 at 7pm at the Bailey Auditorium
Recently released on VHS, The Sleeper is a new slasher film by local filmmaker Justin Russell. Justin created The Sleeper as an homage to a genre that peaked in popularity before he was even born: slasher films.
Slasher films are those horror films from the 1980’s where a maniac offs a group of attractive young people with a machete, or a pair of garden shears, or a shish kabob skewer.
A documentary by local filmmakers won an award from the largest documentary film festival in the country. Julia Reichert and Steve Bognar directed Sparkle, and as WYSO's Emily McCord reports, it was an audience favorite.
