Preserving the Past: Topeka's Jayhawk Theatre

2011

15:30 mins / Color / Sound / HD

Producer, Director, Writer, Interviewer, Editor
 

15:30 minute cut from 20 minute documentary film

This film explores the Jayhawk Theatre and the Jayhawk Complex (hotel, arcade, and former Crosby Department Store) as it played a role as a community center: a place where the people of Topeka and surrounding areas gathered. Housed in the Jayhawk Complex, the Jayhawk Theatre was more than an entertainment house. The theatre was where patrons heard the latest local, national, and international news; a place where local talent got their start; a place where the Crosby's showed their latest fashions through style shows on stage between acts; a place where children enjoyed Saturday morning serials and cartoons; and a place where different classes and races came under one roof, though entangled with issues of segregation.


Through on-camera interviews, photographs, newspaper clippings, and videoed tours, this documentary explores the Jayhawk Theatre as a community center for Topeka and greater Kansas people to congregate from 1926 to 1976. The Jayhawk Theatre has outlived every historic theatre that had its start in downtown Topeka since the late 19th century. Downtown Topeka was once a thriving entertainment and commercial place for people to congregate and like most small cities, it hopes to revive its downtown. Being one of the few historical buildings still remaining in downtown Topeka, with the possibility of future restoration, the Jayhawk has a social history to tell: a history that unifies and connects it with the larger social histories in Topeka, greater Kansas, and throughout the United States.

Showcase of various crew positions

I leave this up because it is nice to see where you've been and what you've learned along the way. This reel older archival reel of accumulated undergraduate and early graduate films I've created or participated in. Almost everything was shot on a Panasonic DVX100-A or B. Projects were shot primarily between 2005 and 2008. All projects were my own with the exception of my work as DP and cinematographer for "The PI's New Case" directed by Rachael Moeller
 and "Boiling Over" directed by Jodi Pfefferkorn
