Filmmaking: “Do the Whipple” by Glen Pearcy



Do The Whipple

by Glen Pearcy


Once a year, filmmaker Glen Pearcy creates a short film to share with family and friends.

This year’s edition was shot with an iPhone, uses no narration,

and deals with a life-saving medical procedure.

Glen Pearcy was nominated for an Academy Award in 1975 for his third film, “Fighting For Our Lives”, a feature-length documentary film about the United Farm Worker’s grape strike. Since then he has written, produced and directed dozens of films, including documentaries for PBS and Turner Network Television; films and video programs for labor unions, consumer organizations, environmental groups, government agencies and political organizations; and television and radio spots for public interest groups, foundations, political candidates and commercial clients.
