THE LINCOLN STUDIOS – February 27, 2021

The Virginia Environmental Film Festival has just awarded a video about a local waterway its Grand Prize produced by a local film production company. The Goose Creek Association’s video “Goose Creek” (also called “Life’s Blood”) produced by the Lincoln Studios headquartered in Fauquier County.

The video’s three creators and producers form The Lincoln Studios film company, headquartered in the village of Paris. The partners are Sarah Huntington, producer and award-winning portrait photographer; Peter Buck, director and videographer, and Drew Babb, writer and adjunct professor at Shenandoah University. The Goose Creek Association co-chairs are Lori Keenan McGuinness (Fauquier) and Paul Lawrence (Loudoun).

The video features brief interviews of local citizens and environmentalists Nina Fout, Mike Morency, Richard T. Gillespie and Goose Creek Association board members. Two widely known pieces of music add dimension: “Riverside” by Agnes Obel and “Take Me to The River” covered by Eva Cassidy. Powerful aerial footage of the Goose Creek from the feature film “Crazy Like a Fox” (written and directed by Richard Squires) opens the video in dramatic fashion. Former CBS News correspondent Betina Gregory voices the piece.

“Most people think of the Goose Creek as a charming little waterway that snakes through the countryside. In fact it’s a river. And a State Scenic River at that! It’s an essential part of our ecosystem. It needs to be protected. We’re delighted our video has received his recognition. We salute our friends at the Lincoln Studios,” said Lori Keenan.
