The paperwork is just about complete, so I feel comfortable now announcing that the FVM project has received another Clark County Historical Promotion Grant. Followers of this project might remember that it was the Clark County Commissioners in 2010 that gave this project its first significant financial support, followed up by another grant in 2011 (the granting program was suspended, due to lack of funds in 2012, but returned again this year, and so did our support!).
This $14,300 grant in 2013 will fund a course release for my continued work on the app this summer, focused on the Old Apple Tree story, plus backend support for the app, as well as a video marketing display for the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site's visitors center, which I probably will install in the early summer, to help to spread the word about the app and to get more people using it when the weather improves.
Thank you, again, Clark County Commissioners! ...

Video highlights from the apps (36-minute version)
This montage provides a sampling of some of the video media in the Fort Vancouver Mobile apps. This app is much more than just a video distribution system, but these videos show the variety of content, from expositional segments to new journalism to those intended to prompt the development of interactive narratives.
