Editorial Note: That Guy: the Legacy of Dub Taylor was never released beyond its screening in Augusta, Georgia, but this series of entries shows the thought process that went into working on my first film.
As we do periodically get emails about this topic, it is not available to the public.James Kicklighter
Today marks the 13th anniversary of Dub Taylor's death, which really, marks a celebration of his life.
My father will have passed away six years ago in February, and I understand that kind of loss -- it's hard. But these kind of dates, while sad, give us a moment to reflect on the lives that they did have, the legacy they left behind.
That's really what this project is about, it's a celebration of life, a celebration of the small moments that are oft forgotten, but remembered by those who were there, who respected them, and were participants in that memory. The legacy lives on in the lives that they impact, their friends, families, and admirers. You can see Dub's final work, Maverick, on TNT this Saturday at 1:30 P.M.
Take today as a reminder of the kind of life you want to live, and look to Dub's example -- do everything as much as you can, when you can, while you can.
