RAYMOND DOCUMENTARY IN THE WORKS

| No Comments | Uncategorized

Alfred Eaker and J Ross Eaker of Eaker Productions are producing/directing/filming a documentary about Raymond Thunder-Sky and Thunder-Sky Inc. They’ve done some initial shooting here in Cincinnati back in April and this weekend, interviewing Bill Ross, Antonio Adams, David Mack, and others. The purpose of the documentary is document Raymond’s life and influence through interviews with Cincinnati artists, co-workers, construction workers, and fans who knew Mr. Thunder-Sky. The cumulative effect of the feature-length film will be a portrait not just of Raymond as a man or artist, but as a cultural and spiritual figure who while he was alive was all but ignored, but through the persistence of his art-making and brave exploration of his own aesthetic universe, and through the persistence of those his life touched, became a touchstone for what it means to be creative and alive.
