Throughout the past two weeks, I have been highlighting some of the merchants along Norman’s Lindsey Street in my Food of Lindsey Street series. These small business owners shared why they love the area, what visitors can expect, and why you should come out and support Lindsey Street. This tour featured the following seven places:

  • Classic 50s Drive-in
  • Legend’s Restaurant
  • Ray’s Smokehouse BBQ
  • The International Pantry
  • Sooner Legends
  • Pizza King
  • India Village

    The video featured here is the complete tour, which includes the introduction, all seven businesses, some closing remarks, and bloopers. The remarks about the construction have been removed on this video to keep it timeless as the construction will end one day.

    This project presented several new challenges for me. For starters, it was the first video I made using funding from a grant. I learned how what a CV was (and how to write one), how to prepare a proposal, and how to handle everything else involved.

    Another challenge was managing multiple projects. I initially thought I could finish this in three weeks. However, when I first thought I would be working on it, I had nothing going on. When I got the approval for the grant, there were other fires in the oven such as my Coffee of Norman documentary. I also picked up some freelance gigs and a feature documentary project along the way. I was able to push back some other projects to keep my workload manageable.

    I want to give a final shout out to Norman Art Council’s We Art Lindsey Street initiative for their support for this project and to viewers like you.
