I was reading on Guamology about Jon Tanuvasa of Timecode Productions and a DVD called Discover Guam that he recently completed after two years of work. Through music and what has been described as remarkable scenic visuals, he has captured the essence of the island.
“I think what I really dug the most about this doc was that it was a documentary about Guam, but showcased in a new light. And since they of course had to involve the island’s history, they decided to keep it fresh and touch on only a few crucial topics without sculpting too much of the piece into a classroom lecture. I think it was a smart choice to go for a few notes on the history and maintain the structure of its original aesthetic style instead of turning it into a textbook. Pretty brave.”- Kel Muna, Guamology
The documentary also includes 1944 news reels. Their DVD is available at Bestseller Bookstore on Guam and online their MySpace page.
