This story shared with us by the Great Salt Lake Collaborative, a group of 19 news, education and civic organizations --- including KRCL -- that have come together to better inform and engage the public about the crisis facing the Great Salt Lake — and what can be done to make a difference before it is too late.

Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) student filmmakers wrap up the semester and stop by RadioACTive to share their work and the experience of filmmaking. In addition to SLCC film professor Tyler Smith and RadioACTive's Val MC, guests include:

  • Produced/Co-Directed by Tanner Reyburn and Directed by Daria Pustovoytova, HaUnTed: Exploring the Paranormal seeks to understand the paranormal inside of Utah. Locations highlighted include the Bigelow Apartments and the Whittier Community Center. 

  • In the short documentary IF YOU KNOW, YOU NOW, Director Dayne Linford and Producer Tristin McCarthy look at Ogden's thriving LGBTQ+ community and it's challenges and triumphs, through the lens of an out and proud business going 8 years strong, Lavender Vinyl. It's about joy and perseverance, and making a beautiful life and powerful impact in the midst of an often deeply prejudicial society.
