The Bill Holman Film

SOURCE: Published:
Bill Holman The Bill Holman documentary that I helped with late last year is moving closer to reality. Its producer, Kathryn King, has launched a fund-raising drive to help her and her crew complete the filmon schedule. That is how many projects are accomplished these days when they don’t have the backing of big Hollywood investors. Few of them have that kind of support, especially when the ventures have to do with the arts. In November, I spent a few days in Los Angeles interviewing Mr. Holman for the film, observing him rehearse his band and attending a remarkable performance of his arrangements of Thelonious Monk compositions.

As one who in his television days wrote and produced a number of documentaries, I was impressed with the skill and savvy of Ms. King, her director Gil Gilbert and their helpers. She has put herself on a tight schedule to complete the funding. I wish her well. It should be self-evident that Bill Holman’s accomplishments and his enrichment of America’s—and the world’s—culture need documentation. For information about the campaign, including a nifty little promotional mini-doc and a visit with the producer, go here.
