FOOTAGE, INTERVIEWS SOUGHT FOR CITY-COMMISSIONED GAS EXPLOSION DOCUMENTARY

News and Events
The city of Sun Prairie is considering producing a video documentary concerning the events of July 10, 2018. The documentary would cover the events between the July 10 explosion and the November 2018 reopening of Main Street. The purpose of the documentary would be to capture the stories from residents most directly impacted by the explosion, from public safety workers and city employees, to displaced residents, business owners, and those who directed relief efforts. The documentary also hopes to encapsulate the resiliency of Sun Prairie and its residents, a fact perhaps represented locally by the #SunPrairieStrong movement. Not included in the documentary will be stories exclusive to any criminal or civil investigations spawned by the explosion. The Sun Prairie Media Center is planning to collect interviews and other footage to…
