“ASPEN-A MAGICAL PLACE” Dave Parsons, Aspen native, and Rich Klinzman, CC VIDEO, have teamed up to produce a one hour documentary that is informative, compelling, and entertaining about the history of Aspen, Colorado. We are passionate about capturing the true untold stories that provide the roots of Aspen’s history before they are lost forever. Using High Def Video, we plan to include interviews with elder Aspen natives, display old and new photos, in conjunction with music and voiceovers to capture the decades and era’s that have shaped Aspen into the incredible town it is today. The inspiration for this documentary comes from Dave Parsons’ pride in his heritage and his desire to share memories with his mother, as well as four generations of his family that have lived in Aspen since the late 1800’s. We are proud to include Tony Vagneur as a valuable member of our team. Tony, a fifth generation Aspen native, is the author of “Saddle Sore” a weekly column in the Aspen Times. He is a captivating cowboy and skier, as well as the president of the Aspen Historical Society. In addition to being an invaluable historical resource for this project, Tony has also agreed to lend his captivating story telling style by acting as the host of the documentary. His knowledge and passion for the Aspen Valley, as well as his ease in interacting with other Aspen natives make him the perfect Cowboy Host of “ASPEN - A MAGICAL PLACE”. The following is a brief outline of the time era’s we will cover in our Documentary: The Utes:
