Ron Bacon and The Kite Song
Original Airdates: Aug. 20-22, 2020
TVC 551.2: A return appearance by Emmy Award winner Ron Bacon, a true pioneer of network TV production who wore many hats throughout his thirty-five-year career, which spanned more than 12,500 broadcasts, covering just about every type of programming imaginable. Topics this segment include how Ron’s background in filming documentaries for Dick Clark Productions served him well when he made The Kite Song, a thirty-minute dramatic short that Ron wrote, produced, filmed, and directed in 1967. Though made on a shoestring budget, the film was considered avant-garde at the time Ron originally made it, and still holds up today. You can enjoy The Kite Song for free at RonBacon.net.
