Steve Lackmeyer brought me the info, guided me through our archives for the appropriate photos and helped produce the above video. Should be helpful this week during the Festival of the Arts. There is a ton of construction downtown, it’s really not easy to navigate.
Tim Money shot the above footage. He accompanied Steve Lackmeyer on an exclusive tour inside, around, up, down and out of the Devon Energy Center earlier this month. Money shot extensive footage. I’ll put together more of it soon.
Steve Lackmeyer from The Oklahoman’s business desk gave me the above footage to compile into a video. Good stuff. It includes footage of the Myriad Gardens lit up, it’s like the Fremont Experience in Vegas.
Ran downtown Monday evening to deliver a DVD to Good Egg Dining Group. We produce some of their multimedia campaigns. Saw the below skyline view from the AGE office on 5th Street. Snapped the pic via iPhone. Then drove down to Kerr to shoot the above video.
Also saw downtown business stringing up Christmas lights. It’s that time of year.
I interviewed Lackmeyer and Justin Tyler Moore about the project and its site RetroMetroOKC.org. Seems like a daunting process to me: organizing a local group of history enthusiasts and collecting people’s memories and tokens of the past.
It’s a great idea. The web site is cool. I admire these guys for their passion and expertise. Impressive.
As always, my friend and colleague Steve Lackmeyer has done a fine job with his latest article on the Plaza District, and how events held in that area are drawing business. You can read his article on NewsOK.com and watch the above video for 3 Things You Should Know about The Plaza District.
