A new film by local videographer Nick James is about the restoration of the historic Port Clinton lighthouse. The video, which run just over five minutes in length, features interviews with Conservancy board members and volunteers, accompanied by footage of the restoration work and historical still photos. The film, which James produced in only three days, was conceived as a trailer for a larger documentary about the history, restoration, and return of the Port Clinton lighthouse to the Lake Erie waterfront.
Members of the Port Clinton Lighthouse Conservancy, aided by a team of dedicated volunteers, meticulously restored the lighthouse after it sat alongside the Portage River for over 60 years. James was editor for the Peter Huston film, “The Battle of Lake Erie Bicentennial Documentary”, which has been nominated for a 45th Annual Lower Great Lakes Emmy Award.
