  • The Night It Rained Tears -video

    Jon Carl believes this is one of the best videos his students have ever made about the Aces plane crash that killed the University of Evansville basketball team in 1977. The local choir sang for this and the student who wrote the script for this was so good at making it come alive. What a great project.

    Video made by the students of Jon Carl at Reitz High School in Evansville Indiana as part of their feelthehistory website. They've been making documentaries for their local PBS station and this website for over 5 years with Adobe Premier. They have been doing this a “long time” and are a great resource for what can be done with this sort of project.
