Telling the story behind the ships

While serving as the first-ever Digital Marketing Manager for the Campbell County Public Library, my director asked me to write, shoot, produce and edit a mini-documentary of sorts.

The goal was to tell the story of Rudy Bowling, a local sailor, and craftsman who created artful models of WWII ships.

Rudy’s models are spread out across the nation and were prominently displayed at the now-defunct Johnny’s Toys. Campbell County Public Library is very fortunate to have five on permanent loan.

Rudy didn’t use any kits or instruction in the construction of these ships. The models range in size from about 3 feet to about 5 feet in length and the attention to detail is startling.

His son shared Rudy’s story and after months of research we got together and he voiced the video.

The result is a short video telling the story of Rudy’s life, service, and craftsmanship.
