On your mark, get set, lights, camera, action. The Des Moines 48 Hour Film Project is celebrating its tenth year this weekend. At 6 PM this Friday, over 40 teams will pull a slip of paper out of a hat. On that slip of paper is their genre assignment: anything from Romance to Fish Out of Water. 48 Hours later, they'll turn in a finished 4-7 minute film. Host Charity Nebbe speaks with city producer Samuel Pace-Tuomi and ten-time participant Mike Kieler in this hour of Talk of Iowa.
Story County's county attorney decided that the use of deadly force in this week's shooting of a chase suspect was justified. Nevertheless, the chase resulted in the death of a young man and raises many questions.
Host Ben Kieffer discusses the facts of the deadly high-speed chase in Ames with IPR's Joyce Russell. Also, ISU and Ames Laboratory engineers have recently developed real-time, 3-D conferencing technology.
