Once more, I’m going to share a number of photographs from Upper Canada Village in Ontario, where the Interpreter Foundation’s film crew has been working on the first portion of the shooting for our Witnesses project.
Interspersed between these photographs, I’ll include some other material that is, in at least some loose sense (perhaps comprehensible only to me), connected with the general subject of the film effort.
Many of you will be familiar with Dennis Prager. (He is, among other things, the principal figure behind the excellent PragerU — for which, by the way, I would love to see a Latter-day Saint equivalent.)

I invite you to take a look at it and, if you’re so inclined, to “follow” it (or whatever other mysterious “Facebook” thing you can do with it). That way, you can stay posted on the progress of our undertaking:
