Film producer Rich Andrews, a former Duvall resident, spent nearly two years working on the project, interviewing longtime residents and collecting photographs.
His lead source (and "most valuable player") was Kimberly Engelkes with the Duvall Historical Society. "Kimberly was really the person I worked with," he said. "She knew how to contact everyone and had all the historical information.Then we sat people down to film their interviews, and that really captured the events that happened. The town isn’t geographically large but there has been a lot to document."
Andrews said he will probably be working on the project up until the time of the showing and expects the final version to be around 45 minutes. He says people can still contact him if they find any more historical photographs or remember any stories they think may be of interest.
Andrews credited his brother Gary for writing the script and doing most of the research. Their parents still live in Duvall.
