Amanda and I have wanted to try a kids film camp sort of deal where we could teach some ‘yoots’ the different aspects of filmmaking, from concept, writing, planning, costumes, acting, editing, all the way to premiering in a theater.

Durham is one of the most successful and trusted law offices in the Nashville area. Part of “the fame” that Bart’s law offices have garnered is very much due to a constant and always new advertising campaign produced by Apple Productions of San Antonio.
