When we were shooting the video for this song, we tried to capture as much of what gives this area its character as we could. Canoeing the Wacissa, Apalachicola oysters on the half shell, finding painted rocks in the Tallahassee Museum's herb garden, and so on- we covered as much as we could in the two minutes or so of the song. It also meant an encounter with the Skunk Ape- so look out Mickey!
Rob Diaz de Villegas is a senior producer for television at WFSU Public Media, covering outdoors and ecology. After years of producing the music program OutLoud, Rob found himself in a salt marsh with a camera, and found a new professional calling as well. That project, the National Science Foundation funded "In the Grass, On the Reef," spawned the award-winning WFSU Ecology Blog. Now in its tenth year, the Ecology Blog recently wrapped its most ambitious endeavor, the EcoCitizen Project.
Rob is married with two young sons, who make a pretty fantastic adventure squad.
