"As The Earth Turns" Trailer (2018)
In 1937, in Seattle, a twenty-year old budding filmmaker using his own equipment, had already created 58 plays and 9 never released, award-winning films. This director would go on to work for Disney, and eventually create an Academy Award winning documentary in 1950. Richard H. Lyford’s films have developed a following among film-historians around the world. His early “amateur” films are some of the first “indie” films ever created outside of Hollywood. Lyford experimented with special effects, and models, and was becoming an excellent director. His final film of this era was “As the Earth Turns”. It was filmed in the Pacific Northwest, in and around Seattle.
“As the Earth Turns”, will be making the film festival rounds in 2019, and then available for distribution for the first time after 80 years of development!
