‘Think of Me First as a Person’, a 2006 entry into the National Film Registry, is now available at Vimeo on Demand. Here’s a video short, featuring an interview with Mike Mashon, from the Library of Congress, about the film’s entry into the National Film Registry.
You can still purchase the DVD here – the DVD version includes several additional films, including ‘My Favorite Child’, a film by Roger M. Richards about Dwight Core 40 years after the original film.
While in film school, I produced a 22-minute documentary on Herman Leonard’s 80th birthday (2003) which took place at Rosy’s Jazz Hall in uptown New Orleans — around the same time, I recorded Herman talking about his travel photography, at Longue Vue House and Gardens, and made this short.

I met Henry Butler back in 1999 at a now shuttered jazz club on Rampart Street, the Funky Butt — he was a regular guest on my show on WWOZ and always a pleasure to see perform live. This film was made in 2015.
A two-part radio documentary (with breaks each half-hour) about Champion Jack Dupree, a New Orleans piano player with quite a story: as an important tie to the boogie woogie piano players of Storyville; a boxer, an expatriate during the Jim Crow south and a man who came home (for a visit) many years later to see a change, more inclusive United States.
