Inventor Portrait: Donald Scruggs (also: big news!)

November 14, 2012

I’m very excited to announce that the videos I’ve been producing as part of my Inventors Portrait Project are now part of PBS Digital Studios. The first new episode went up on their YouTube channel last week, and new episodes will go up every other Tuesday. Here’s the first episode, about Donald Scruggs, inventor of the Screw-In Coffin:

The series will be mostly new videos, with some of the videos I’ve posted here previously mixed in, perhaps with a few changes. They’ll be new to most people.

The YouTube Channel can be found at its permanent home, and it would mean a lot to me if you subscribe to the channel and/or share it with your friends.

Here are some of the photos from my shoot with Donald Scruggs:


Oh no, YouTube instead of Vimeo! ):

I still love Vimeo, and will continue to post other work there. But PBS uses YouTube, and working with them makes it worthwhile for me to set aside my video platform ideology for now.

Congratulations, and very well done. Now, to get the image of being a vertical, saggy-kneed corpse for the rest of eternity out of my brain.

This sounds really amazing! It also amazes me how everything is really found online now. I mean, who needs television when there is YouTube or Vimeo? Indeed, everything has become really advanced now that stuff like this can really now be accessible for the public.
