OWENSBORO, KY (4/29/13) - Owensboro filmmaker and founder of Verite Cinema, P.J. Starks, is currently being featured on the 21st season of the PBS program, Main Street, which highlights interesting people, places or things.
Starks was selected by the network to be featured on the program to showcase the independent film work he has done in and around the community of Owensboro, KY.
"It was extremely cool for me to have PBS let me tell my story," says Starks. "I've been working very hard in the community to make a name for myself and to be recognized for my efforts was very humbling. Verite Cinema started out as a means to express my need to be creative and has evolved into an avenue to help others get their projects acknowledged through events such as Unscripted: An Indie Film Xperience. My journey thus far has been surreal and I feel fortunate that I got the opportunity to relive it through a reputable station like PBS."
PBS has recently released the interview and you can watch it by clicking the embedded video below.
