The Ken Burns Effect is a Ken Burns-style documentary homage to Ken Burns, featuring Ken Burns.

The films of Ken Burns brought us together, instilled in us a love for the United States and its history, and taught us the value of public broadcasting and of filmmaking. That is the Ken Burns effect. We decided that the only way to truly and properly pay homage to our hero was to hit the road, journey to meet him and document our odyssey in the way he taught us. 

That’s why we’re making a documentary about Ken Burns, our love for his films and our road trip to see him in person.

If you love Ken Burns as much as we do, we encourage you to join us and to share your stories! You can also email us at theKBeffect@gmail.com to see how you can help or get involved. We are in the process of post-production for our film right now, and we have plenty to do!

We are eager to tell this story — OUR story — in the only way we know how — with The Ken Burns Effect. Thank you so much for visiting our site, take a look around and make sure to share your stories about Ken Burns and his films!

  1. Hi Tia and Erin,

    As a token investor in your grand and glorious project, just curious how post production is going? The blog story looks like it was a lot of fun.

    • Hi there!

      Thanks for your support and continued interest. We’re in the murky depths of Post-Production – and by “we” I mean “Tia,” who actually knows what she’s doing – editing, gathering archival footage, coercing our family members into writing and recording original banjo songs. We also just launched round two of fundraising on indiegogo. Now that we have footage, we look a little more legit to reach out to donors beyond our wonderful family and friends who believed in us in the first place.

      Then, to the film festivals!

      We’re also getting ready to ship out the official Ken Burns Effect swag, so check your mail for that.

      Thank you again!

      • Thanks for they wonderfully-written reply. I won’t ask what the full Lincoln is, but as a kid, we had an enormously full Lincoln with gaudy and tacky tail fins. Something like that, right?
