Welcome to the Sentimental Productions blog. For nearly 25 years now, we’ve produced more than 60 unique videos, celebrating America in story, scenery and song.

Since it’s nearly Spring, we’re hard at work on the upcoming edition of Sentimental Reflections, our quarterly video magazine that’s released four times each year, at the start of each season. We travel throughout the country to put together each 45-minute edition, so you’ll be reading a lot about the various topics here. We encourage you to join us on our journeys.

Newseum in Washington, D.C.

The Spring edition will have lots of informative and entertaining content. Our Cover Story is about the Newseum, the compelling and comprehensive museum of news in Washington, D.C. It’s located right on Pennsylvania Avenue, with fabulous views of the Capitol. Viewers will learn why it’s one of the most popular museums in D.C.

For our On A Musical Note segment, we’ll look at the music of American composer Stephen Foster. We visit two parks: one named for Foster in North Florida, along the Suwannee River, immortalized in his “Old Folks At Home;” and the other in Bardstown, Kentucky, commemorating “My Old Kentucky Home.”

Jockey's Ridge State Park
Our Scenic America segment will take us to the Outer Banks of North Carolina to a place called Jockey’s Ridge State Park. It’s the home of the tallest active sand dune system in the United States. You’ll see the seemingly endless dunes while listening to calming music in this relaxing part of our video magazine.

That’s just part of what’s coming up. But since we’re good at looking back, we invite you to watch excerpts of some of the scores of videos we’ve produced over the years. Check out our new YouTube channel and you can see dozens of video clips, ranging from John Glenn’s historic orbit of the earth to the Home Front during World War II.

We’ve also captured some of the best scenery in the country in our latest series, Sentimental Serenity.  There are now four videos in this series.

We like to say that we present America and Americans, as we are and as we were. Check out our new website at and find out what we mean.
