ORCTV Broadcast Premier

Old Rochester Community TV is pleased to announce the broadcast premiere of local filmmaker Gary Lawrence’s latest documentary film, “Backyard Pilots.” The film, which premiered in Rochester to a live audience of several hundred guests at the “Arch at the Meadow” event facility on June 26, chronicles the long-time friendship of local pilots Glenn Lawrence and Steve Sperry.

            Lawrence first conceptualized the project over a decade ago while he was still a student at Old Rochester Regional High School. When asked what inspired him to create the film he said, “Backyard Pilots is a short documentary about Meadow Muffin Airstrip and the pilots who call it home. I filmed and edited this short film by myself as a passion project; it took me much longer than I would like to admit.”

            “Backyard Pilots” will debut on ORCTV this Sunday evening, July 25, at 8:00 pm on the station’s public channel (channel 36 for Verizon customers or channel 9 for Comcast subscribers). Additional showings are scheduled for Wednesday and Friday evenings at 6:30 pm, and Sundays at 11:00 am and 8:00 pm throughout the month of August.
