This is the first attempt at doing somewhat of a documentary-type video.  It's about 55 minutes length.  I wanted to find out from people why they come to Metropolis to the Superman Celebration.  What is it about the town and the Celebration that keeps people coming to our small town once a year for four days?

I interviewed Matt Apps in 2007, the first year he came to the Celebration, for the Planet.  This year was his third visit.  He's become a friend and I told him I'd pick him up from the airport and he befriended Sefy Levy, from Israel and I gave them a ride to their hotels and began by interviewing them and then began asking other people their thoughts.

There were some sound and video issues during some of the interviews, my apologies!

A big thank you to Matt and Sefy and Mary Francis Malloy, Ronda Kelley, Jamie Kelley, William Weiss, Bob Kreher, Mary Francis Malloy, Doreen & Dan and Thomas & Desiree, Morgan Siebert, Al Wagner, Glenda Perisho, Johnny Lloyd, Stephanie Perrin and Alex Saviuk for talking with me for this video project!
