Hats off to the Dallas Public Library for hosting Texas Music Mini-Conference with an amazing line up of speakers, authors, historians – all for FREE. We attended these sessions in Dallas recently. It was a very informative day, and we received some very positive feedback on the trailers for South Texas Soul: The San Antonio Sound and Dallas Electric: The Texas Blues Story.
From Dallas Public Library Site:
“Twelve sessions will be offered covering a wide range of performers and styles, including Stamps-Baxter and Southern Gospel music, Texas blues, rock bands from the 60s, two noted women in Texas music, the Texas International Pop Festival, jazz in Texas, the Big D Jamboree, and more. Two film screenings will be included in the day: Teen-a-Go-Go and South Dallas Pop. The full day’s schedule is now available, as is biographical information about program presenters.”

We were quite honored to be invited to have a small part in the day. During the opening registration at the Texas Music Mini-Conference we displayed trailers for two music related HD documentaries currently in production. These projects are being produced with support of the 501C-3 non-profit Still Kickin’ Foundation. See previous blog post: South Texas Soul: The San Antonio Sound

Be sure to click the “HD” button on YouTube video to watch in highest resolution.
Dallas Electric: The Texas Blues Story – YouTube
We need to update this video on YouTube with new higher resolution HD setting, but you get the idea…
The native format for these documentaries is 1080 24p DVCPro HD, needless to say, YouTube doesn’t really do justice!
Thanks for visiting…
