Keith Nix Knives Video
The Carolina Photojournalism Workshop
I had the privilege of being selected by one of fifteen UNC School of Journalism students who journeyed to Black Mountain on May 9, 2022. Their mission was to produce a distinctive short film that features a noteworthy resident of Black Mountain and Western NC within a tight six-day timeframe.
From the CPJW website:
"Since 2004, a group of multimedia students from the University of North Carolina travel to these unique locations with a group of professional coaches to produce a documentary website in a week. Students immerse themselves in the lives of the area’s people, and work 24/7 on a video production that gets publicly screened on the final night. The stories are also published online to continue to provide an intimate cultural record for the public."
I had the pleasure of working with a talented young man named Cooper Metts in my NC knife shop that week. He dedicated a significant amount of time to creating the Keith Nix Knives Video displayed below. It brings me great joy to share it with you now. Thank you, Cooper, wherever you may be!
