Effingham: This is Our Story
Premieres Thursday, Oct. 2, at 7 p.m.
We completed 30 interviews with our Effingham storytellers! It was great to meet everyone and learn more about the stories that are important to them.
Our production day involved collecting and copying video and photographs for everyone’s story, followed by an interview with the storyteller for the program. Several WEIU staff members were involved in the process, which took place at Stang Arts in downtown Effingham.
Our production staff is now hard at work taking the video, photographs and interviews and editing each story into a 3- to 5-minute piece. Once that process is complete, they will begin putting the stories together into the show which airs Thursday, Oct. 2, at 7 p.m.
