This unedited footage from the Fred Miller Collection captures an interview with Tim Hamblin, artistic director of the now-defunct Austin Music Network (AMN), a non-profit independent music television channel that was based in Austin. The AMN, which began broadcasting in 1994, programmed music videos and performances, with a focus on Texan musicians. The channel was relaunched as the Music & Entertainment Television in 2005. Hamblin discusses the Austin music scene, as well as the economic and political issues involved in maintaining the AMN.
Fred Miller, media producer and Austinite, is best known for his work producing the Academy Award-nominated documentary For All Mankind (1989), which follows the Apollo moon missions from 1968 to 1972 and was selected as the Audience Favorite and the Grand Jury Winner at the Sundance Film Festival in 1989. He also created Texas Entertainment News in 1995, a show featuring information about the Texas entertainment industry and Texan performers, which combined broadcast television and Internet streaming. His work includes numerous industrial and commercial works.
