Despite a wicked inner-ear infection that led him to hand over most of the day’s officiating responsibilities to Mayor Pro Tem Brewster McCracken, charismatic Austin, TX mayor Will Wynn personally stepped up to proclaim October 19th the official Home Movie Day in Texas’s capital city. Wynn declared, “We encourage all citizens to participate in celebrating home movies as a central component of our cultural heritage.” Local host Mat Darby accepted the fancy gold-stamped proclamation on behalf of the Austin HMD organizing committee, noting that “home movies and amateur films from Austin help show that history doesn’t happen just to famous people—it happens here, and it happens to all of us.” Video of the proclamation ceremony is available here.
