Passing the Baton: DocUWM's Film Makes Milwaukee!/Make Milwaukee 2012 Week 3

Click to enlarge

Passing the Baton tells a story with images, sound, and heart. Created by the Doc/UWM program--specifically  executive producer Jenny Plevin, director and producer Ryan Sarnowski, and co-editor Aaron Zakowski, it tells the story of Joe Sims' Milwaukee Striders and its origins. Who and what are the Milwaukee Striders? Well, at the risk of creating a "spoiler", you'll just have to listen to the story, and then click on the link above to find out more.

I sat down first with Jenny Plevin to talk about the DocUWM program and some of its projects, and then I attended a special screening of Passing the Baton at the Fireside Lounge located in UWM's Union.

This is part 1 of a 2 part story on the DocUWM program at UWM, so there will be more to come!!

Oh, and here is a link to the movie trailer.
