CMCM Updates

Meet CMCM Member Dick Jordan

Your name:

Dick Jordan

How long have you been a member of CMCM?

Since late 2012.


The Title of Your Marin TV Series (or Special/s):

I've produced 18 "specials" for Marin TV including "'Southeast - Life in the Alaska Panhandle," "The White Bag," and "Cuba, Libre."


In a nutshell, describe your CMCM series (or special/s): 

"Southeast" is a visual essay about Alaska's remote Panhandle region; it has been viewed on 27 public access stations across the U.S. serving over 1 million households.

"The White Bag" is a spoof on the 1940s-1950s film noir "cops and robbers" and spy thrillers. It was a CMCM class project in which I play the "Ace of Spies." 

"Cuba, Libre" is a documentary that traces this history of travel to Cuba by Americans from the early decades of the 20th century until the Cuban revolution, and in the last 20-odd years since Americans resumed visits to that island nation.
