University of Dayton professor, historian and author Larry Schweikart wanted to produce a documentary based on a chapter of his book. He reached out to producer Marc Leif and a partnership was born. One year after their initial conversation, the film was complete and you can see ROCKIN’ THE WALL on local PBS channels across the county now. The team is currently working on OTHER WALLS TO FALL (the sequel).
GREAT DEAL: As a special perk to friends of FilmDayton, the team is releasing the DVD for a special 1/2 off discounted price. Regularly priced at $19.99, you can get the DVD for only $10 if you mention FILMDAYTON in an email to the production team. Learn about this film at their Web site and email now to secure a copy for yourself or as a gift. This deal won’t work through the Web site, so to take advantage of it – email Larry at email@example.com.
