SHORT LIFE OF TROUBLE: THE LEGEND OF G.B. GRAYSON is a film that tells the long overdue story of a Johnson County legend.
Journeys II: Veterans was a project in which Tia Thomas photographed local Veterans. Veterans who were willing to share their stories were filmed by Germain Media. Full length interviews are in our archive and available for families to download at no cost.
This is a hi light film that shows excerpts from each of these powerful interviews. Thank to everyone who participated, and especially to Tennessee Arts Commission, East Tennessee Foundation, and Germain Media whose generous support made this project possible.
To empower our community and bring them together through teaching, encouraging and supporting a variety of artistic forms and experiences.
