Local filmmaker delves into Madison County’s pioneer past

Local filmmaker delves into Madison County's pioneer past

“Some were destroyed by farmers in the early 20th century,” said Hull.

She recalled one such farmer who not only plowed up the cemetery, but used the stones for a patio. Another pioneer cemetery was used as a junkyard.

In addition to researching the stories, writing the narrative, and filming, Green wrote and performed his own soundtrack. While the appealing music sounds like a mix of instruments, the inventive Green came up with a special method to create the soundtrack.

“It’s a method that I use for recording that was inspired by the work of two musicians Brian Eno and Robert Fripp,” said Green. He did some of that work with Shawn Neal at Neal’s Anderson recording studio. Although you’d never know it, Green said, “All the music you hear on the soundtrack is guitar.”

Green plans to enter the film in several film festivals; after that, he hopes that public television will pick the film up.

Get the DVD "Stories in Stone" is available at the Madison County Historical Society, 15 West 11th St., Anderson, at a cost of $20. The society may be hosting a screening in the future, so stay tuned. Green will also mail a DVD to you at a cost of $23. Email Green at chet_green2000@yahoo.com.
