I just received an email from Scott Gabrielson who, you’ll remember, is on the team working to produce the film about the old Woonsocket High School. Well, so far so good, the shooting is done and the editing is nearing completion. But they are running out of money to promote and present the premiere. So…..he’s hoping you and I can give them a final 10 fingers up and it is easy to do. Simply go to your computer and browse to this address: www.kickstarter.com. You’ll be instantly zipped to the webpage for our movie. All I’m asking is that you visit that website. I hope you’ll find it worthy of your support, too.

My Old School is an independent documentary about the former Woonsocket Middle & High School that was opened in 1914 and closed in 2009. It now sits empty and closed off in the center of this Rhode Island city. We traced its history and tracked down former students, teachers, and city officials who discuss the building's strange layout and the powerful memories it contains. The film takes a historical approach and combines it with the beautiful backdrop of this massive abandoned school. This documentary will be about 80 minutes long and presented in full HD.
