Last January I posted about a series of videos that the Stratton Foundation was going to be posting (1 a month) about Gene Stratton-Porter and her homesites in Indiana. At that time I explained more in depth about who Gene Stratton-Porter was. Today I’m going to share December’s posted video. I’m very sorry to say this is the last entry in the series. I hope you’ve enjoyed it and have learned a little more about Gene Stratton-Porter.
Amanda Trudell was one of the scholarship film students that the Stratton Foundation had been supporting before they discovered their connection with Gene Stratton-Porter. As they had already been working with film production and nature, they embraced their realization of the connection and the cousins they hadn’t realized existed. The Stratton family hired Trudell to document the story of Gene Stratton-Porter surrounding the anniversary celebration in 2013. I hope you’ve enjoyed these short films as much as I have. I wish Amanda Trudell and her production company good luck on their future endeavors.
