Daniel Buckley is involved in several ongoing projects.
Cine Plaza at the Fox Documentary Series - an ongoing look at the post WW II history of Tucson’s Mexican American community, neighborhoods and institutions. The 2012
installment will focus on Tucson’s landmark El Casino Ballroom.
The Jonestown Project – An ongoing musical exploration of the Jonestown disaster, and its implications for the present and future.
Other Projects in development:
• “Circles of Time and Space” – a video camera is mounted on a telescope clock mount, and rotated slowly (roughly once an hour) to capture the subtle changes of sky and earth. The resulting video is then sped up to compress 2 hours of shooting time into 2 minutes. Breathtaking Arizona vistas, city and rural locales become moments in time and space. Buckley will compose a musical score to go with each and build a collage of the state from the individual landscape vignettes.
• The Arizona Centennial Project – Arizona celebrates its 100th birthday in 2012. Daniel Buckley is seeking funding to create a project in which 100 Arizonans from all walks of life and all ethnicities will be interviewed on video about the state of Arizona now, how things have changed in their lifetimes, and where they see Arizona 100 years from now. A kind of time capsule snapshot of Arizona will emerge.
