Brian Huffman, Jean Liebau's nephew, is a talented filmmaker and has just produced all of the marketing, and commercials for the film "9/11 The Days After" about the reconstruction of Ground Zero for the History Channel. Brian also designed and produced the logo and the last part of the film. The show airs tonight at 8pm on the History Channel. "9/11 The Days After" is a collection of home video accounts of the immediate aftermath of the World Trade Center attacks from people looking for loved ones to threats placed against the Muslim community.
Brian also had a big role in the programming for September 11th. At 8:46AM, the History Channel is going to air "102 Minutes That Changed America" on all of the channels around the world, in a simulcast. He coordinated the simulcast and produced the content that will air between 8:30 and 8:46.
Brian also produced a number of "mini-docs" that are posted on the History website. Below are a few of the links.
We are proud of Brian's hard work on this emotional project and chilling documentary.
