Filmmaking: “Available Light” by Glen Pearcy



Available Light

by Glen Pearcy

Publisher’s Note

Once a year, Filmmaker Glen Pearcy, makes a film for his own enjoyment

and makes it available to a small circle of friends.

In 2012, he created “Available Light” to illustrate his belief a film can “tell the story”

without narration. You be the judge.

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.
