Gearing up for 'Buffalo Unscripted'

Unscripted 2010
Filmmaker and National Trust for Historic Preservation staffer Jason Lloyd Clement films an Austin resident for last year's "Austin Unscripted" documentary.

There's more to come on this in Friday's edition of Gusto (and in my Sunday column on the Gusto Extra page), but let this serve as a heads-up to anyone interested in broadcasting their thoughts on what it means to be a Buffalonian. The folks at the National Trust for Historic Preservation, which brings its annual confernce (and all that signifies) to Buffalo from Oct. 19-22, are coming to town this weekend to shoot a documentary dubbed "Buffalo Unscripted."

They'll be at the Central Terminal on Saturday starting at 9:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m., after which Buffalo band Those Idiots will play a set. The team will then dash off to Cazenovia Park for the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra's Olmsted Community Celebration and spend the rest of the week, through July 24, hop-scotching from place to place on a mission to collect a range of Buffalonians' opinions of the place they call home. Check out the filming schedule (part of the team's excellent Tumblr page) here.

Here's one of several videos that came out of the "Austin Unscripted" program, the inaugural version of the project that the National Trust launched last year in the lead-up to its Austin conference:
