19 May Dirt Time has made it to the Smithsonian
I think it’s a pseudo-goal of any filmmaker/television producer to ultimately make it to the Smithsonian. Doing so, means that you’ve established a place for yourself in the canon of popular cultural.
…Well, Dirt Time has done it! We made it! We’re in the Smithsonian! …just in a slightly different wing from the TV sciences stuff…
The Smithsonian currently has a very neat exhibit going on called: Dig it! The Secrets of Soil. It is all about Soil – virtually every facet of it.
Though skewed towards a younger audience, if you are in the Washington area, it definitely seems worthy of checking out. You can read all about it here.
And we are very proud to say that Dirt Time plays some small part in the exhibit. In preparation for the exhibition, the Smithsonian contacted Dirt Time, talked to John and asked for some video footage – which we were more than happy to provide. In fact, John is featured as one of the exhibits ‘Explorers of Soil’.
In what capacity, Dirt Time appears in the exhibit, we’re not too sure. We hope to check it out ourselves one day soon. But if any one happens to visit the museum themselves and catches a glimpse of us – shoot us a mail, we would love to find out more.
Here’s a news piece on the exhibit:
