History of The Fourth of July

Known as Independence Day, the Fourth of July is an annual holiday that celebrates America’s independence from Great Britain. Historically, July 4, 1776 was when The Continental Congress officially adopted The Declaration of Independence and thus a new nation was born, where all men are created equal and are “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Two weeks ago I attended IMAGINE Magazine's New Year's Celebration & Imaginnaire Awards Gala, an annual event that gathers together and honors members of New England's film & television community. The event was packed full of friendly faces who were all there to celebrate their fellow artists. Since then I have been thinking a lot about what it means to support others in this field.

Two of NewTV’s longtime members have recently completed their first short documentary about one of Boston’s most significant historic buildings – the Waterworks, Boston’s first public water system. Upon connecting, Ellie Goldberg and Laura Johnson embarked on the enriching, and at times incredibly challenging, journey of taking something inspirational and developing it into a cohesive story. The end product, which Ellie and Laura titled The Metropolitan Waterworks Museum: Big Buildings, Big Machines, Big Stories, depicts a motivationally genuine account of what’s possible with high-end TV production training, some necessary film and editing equipment, and unwavering hard work.
