CHATTANOOGA SKETCHES 1:
Random video images and sounds ...

These web pages are for a series of sketches made in Chattanooga, Tennessee, since November 2005, the date of our arrival. They are experimental documentary sketches, incomplete, yet which aim to give a sense of the city through the impressions recorded via video camera, tame and not-so tame. Links are below. The video clips immediately below were edited into a documentary titled "Chattanooga's Homeless Challenge" -- click the title to view a trailer
