MotionMasters announces new documentary

The 75th anniversary of the completion of West Virginia’s magnificent state Capitol will be observed in 2007. Given the recent completion of its stunning gold dome, and the restoration work that is under way, there is no better time to produce the FIRST documentary about our Capitol’s history.

There’s so much history to tell – about the “floating Capitol” that drifted between Wheeling and Charleston, about the building on Capitol Street that burned to the ground, about the steely political negotiations as to where the fifth, and final, Capitol building would be built. And then, there’s the story of the renowned architect who designed our magnificent structure – and the frugal Legislature that demanded it be built on a “pay-as-you-go” basis.

It’s an interesting project, and long overdue! MotionMasters is pleased to be a part of it!
