Gravehunting With Steve

This is a post I've been anticipating for some time. Back in October of 2007 I shot a ton of video with my brother, Steve, the celebrity grave hunter (whose book, LA's Graveside Companion: Where the V.I.P.s R.I.P. has just been released).

He gave me (and my camera) a tour of Hollywood Forever, Hillside Memorial Park, and Holly Cross Cemetery in Los Angeles, telling tales of the famous, the infamous, and the just plain dead, and how he got into the hobby of grave hunting and turned it into a side business of giving tours, maintaining a web site, and writing books.

Shortly after, I posted a three minute rough "preview" from that footage on YouTube (the video included below). Through a variety of incidents, editing the full project kept getting put off and put off, but in the last couple of months has finally been completed.

The full video is just under 24 minutes long, and came out pretty darn good, if I say so myself. We're shopping it around to a few different film festivals and have made it available on DVD. This morning, the listing on Amazon.com went live, which is something of a landmark, as well as a listing on IMDb, which I still don't quite believe.
