Robinson Film Center groundbreaking this weekend, neat "virtual tour" on the web

I work for an oprganization called The Robinson Film Center, which is an upcoming venue for independent, international, and classic film. While working there, I've also had the priviledge of getting to teach introductory video production to a lot of students who'd never even given a thought to making their own films. In the last few months, the job has nearly consumed my entire life outside of work. But we're breaking ground on construction/renovations of our building this weekend, so the work is paying off.

If you'd like to zip fast forward to early 2007 and have the architect who designed the building, as well as the Executive Director, give you a guided tour of the facility, you can to that...sort of. The Times has posted a very cool "Virtual tour" of the completed building, which includes a "Director's Commentary"-style audio track. You can check it out here (scroll down to the "Multimedia" section - it streams in Windows Media Player). I admit to getting a little excited every time I see the theaters.

This is some uber-cool stuff, Chris. I haven't checked out the virtual tour but most certainly will. Get me a friggin' job at this place when it opens. I'll get Herschell Gordon Lewis or John Waters to do a screening there. Or not.

Shoot if I can just go to screenings there I'll be happy. You're working for a good thing, Mr. Jay. Take pride in that.
