In my latest cinematic short film, Whispers of the Past – Abandoned between Hueytown and Jasper, I go rural exploring in Alabama.
My latest cinematic short film, Whispers of the Past – Abandoned between Hueytown and Jasper, was inspired by my childhood. Long Sunday rides in rural areas of Alabama, looking at abandoned places.
So, in this short film I find myself between Hueytown and Jasper, Alabama. Often just taking random roads in this area to see what we can find. I’ll spend most of the time travelling Highway 267 through Concord, Sylvan Springs and Walker County.
According to Wikipedia:
Hueytown is a city in western Jefferson County, Alabama, United States. It is part of the Birmingham metropolitan area, and was part of the heavy industry development in this area in the 20th century. At the 2020 census, the population was 16,776.
Hueytown was the home of the Alabama Gang, famous in NASCAR stock car racing. In 1992 the city became known for the unexplained “Hueytown Hum”, a mysterious noise later thought to be caused by large underground ventilation fans used in a nearby coal mine.
Its nearby residential and business communities were damaged by an F5 tornado on April 8, 1998 and by an EF4 tornado on April 27, 2011.
