Being an Indiana native (Bloomington to be exact), I was excited to find out that Jason Bitner is creating a documentary film based on his incredible LaPorte, Indiana book. LaPorte, Indiana the book is a collection of beautiful photographs Jason purchased from local LaPorte establishment B & J's American Cafe during a road trip meal break. Bitner, who spent hours sifting through hundreds of photos, hand selected each photograph to create an unforgettable visual time capsle. I instantly fell in love with the book after purchasing it three summers ago.
Lucky guy that I am, Jason agreed to do an extensive interview with me about the book. In case you missed it, here is the link.
Now, nearly two years since our interview, in which Jason hinted at a documentary film project, a film is in the works.
Joe Beshenkovsky and produced by Bitner.
These guys need your help in raising funds for the film. They are trying to raise 7,500 dollars in the next three weeks. To find out more about making a donation, click here.
