May 9, 2012 - PRLog -- HISTORIC TORNADO DOCUMENTARY PROJECT ANNOUNCED
     The central Kansas tornado outbreak of September 25th, 1973 is the subject of a new documentary film project.          
     Producer Ron Fent of Salina and Fent's Post Productions are offering rewards for those who participate in the project's internet-based Kickstarter campaign. Production plans include archived films, photos and sounds recorded on that day when many F-3 twisters took a heavy toll across north-central Kansas. Tornadoes struck Little River, Sundowner EastTrailer Park, New Cambria, Niles, Clay Center, Bennington, Linn and Greenleaf Kansas. Severe flooding followed.

    "When talking to people for this new tornado documentary," said Fent, "the most striking thing has been how much they recall of the moments of high adrenaline during those storms. Almost 40 years later, you can see it in their faces: Time stood still. There was the war in Vietnam, Richard Nixon, Roe v Wade, the Wounded Knee occupation... Turbulent times! But in that moment when an F-3 debris ball is spinning toward them, well, things get really vivid and simple. Those memories are still fresh. I HAVE to capture those stories!"

     Rewards for project participation include movie posters, T-shirts, movie downloads, screen credits in the movie, Dvd copies, meals and more. The deadline is May 26th, 2012. To participate visit the project website at:
