THE COLUMBIA PAPER FEATURES "LOCALS" IN JANUARY 21, 2010 ISSUE
"Local food added to menu of of the silver screen" reads the headline of the article featuring the movie, LOCALS, in the January 21, 2010 issue of The Columbia Paper. In the article, Diane Valden writes, Still photos of the countryside, farm animals, farm products and farmers' faces are interspersed with thoughtful agricultural-related quotes and filmed interviews with farmers and green and farm market organizers."
Ms. Valden quotes several people who appear in the film, including Doug Ginn of Twin Maple Farm/Pampered Cow, Dan Gibson of Grazin' Angus Acres, Beth Linsky of Beth's Farm Kitchen, as well as folks from ORed Oak Farm and Scarecrow Farm.
"There is nothigng slick or high tech about the film, which Mr. DeVito put together over 18 months using a handheld camera, his cell phone and a laptop computer. Besides the voices of the poeple who speak, the soundtrack is a catchy little tune played on a piano."
