9YM mourns the passing of Diana Sowle. To the world she was Charlie's mom in "Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory." To us, she will always be our slightly wicked Mother Goose in a fractured fairy tale DoD training film. Diana was a talented actress and endearing person who left a mark with all who worked with her.

"Docuwood" No More? Why The Region's Reign Over Documentary Film And Reality TV May Be Slipping - The Kojo Nnamdi Show

Here's an interesting listen from today's episode of The Kojo Nnamdi Show. Kojo explored the changes in the DC production landscape with the departure of Discovery Communications. Nine Yards Media got a shout out on the show. 9YM was founded in 1989 and has maintained a firm footprint in DC's evolving production community through innovation and integration. We've seen an ebb and flow in documentary and commercial production over our 25+ years in the industry and benefit from the exceptional depth of production talent in the region.

Washington, DC has been known for years for being a center of documentary and reality TV production. But with the departure of key institutions like Discovery Communications, could that be changing?

Lost Laurel

We had the good fortune to cast Diana Sowle in one of our videos quite a few years ago. She was, and still is, a pro and very friendly.

If you love the 1971 film, "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory" like I do, you'll be happy to learn that the actress who played Charlie Bucket's mom is actually a current resident of Laurel. Who knew?!

(Thanks for the tip, Ladonna June Kane!)

Our hearts go out to the families of two photojournalists slain in Virginia while reporting a feature story. Many of the excellent on-camera talent, producers, and videographers on our crews have worked in news and we're saddened to think of the risks they must take every day to inform the public.

Just a reminder to all of our "fans" that 9YM will be on Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce time today after celebrating the finale of Mad Men last night.

Accordingly:
All administrative and creative support staff must arrive on time, but may nap before others arrive in the vacant offices of creative leads and execs.

All junior creative and account staff must arrive by 10 a.m. and have their 9:30 reports ready before the 11 a.m. account meeting which has been pushed to 2:30 -- 3:30 at the latest.

All partners, execs and lead creative staff must arrive sometime today and make every attempt to be wearing a different outfit than they did on Friday.

This documentary about the VA’s crisis hotline is among Sunday’s Oscar nominees

Congratulations to all of the Oscar nominees and winners, especially, "Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1". Media is never more powerful than when it helps us see, fathom, and imagine that which is beyond our common understanding. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/federal-eye/wp/2015/02/20/this-documentary-about-the-va-crisis-hotline-is-among-sundays-oscar-nominees/

This year's nominees include an HBO documentary about the VA's 24-hour crisis hotline, featuring responders reacting to complex calls and discussing the emotional challenges of their work.
