Matt Willis got a cool crew credit line for the upcoming Vortex of Revelation. Here's what the website says:

"MATTHEW LEE WILLIS will help choreograph the stunt and fight sequences in Vortex of Revelation as the Stunt Coordinator-Texas. Mr. Willis is experienced in stage combat, including hand to hand and weapons fighting, as well as stunts of many different variations. He is also an experienced gymnastics coach, acrobat and juggler in his own right. Mr. Willis has also had experience on the other side of the camera and recently appeared in the Boys Next Door, Gigi, Kiss Me Kate, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat and Dracula. Kodron welcomes Mr. Willis' assistance in choreographing the stunts and fighting scenes to be filmed in Texas and looks forward to working with him on this and future productions."

The latest video documentary from TPWD about water resources, "Texas the State of Springs," is in final post production and will air at 8 p.m. Thursday, February 15th on all Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) stations in the state. The one-hour TV program is part of a broader TPWD public information initiative that began with a special water resource issue of Texas Parks & Wildlife magazine in July 2002 that has become an annual special issue every July since. The initiative also includes radio, Internet and other educational components. Broadcast news legend Walter Cronkite has again lent his distinctive voice to this latest project, as he did for TPWD's last water resource TV documentary "Texas: the State of Water-Finding A Balance" in 2005. This year's documentary will examine the historical decline of springs across the state and explore current groundwater and land use issues that impact spring flow. It will look at how groundwater pumping and water marketing in rural areas can affect springs, along with how proper land management can enhance and even restore spring flow. It will show how conservation easements and land acquisitions are used to protect key elements of watersheds. It concludes with how urban homeowners can have a positive impact and dramatically reduce their water bills through native plant landscaping and other water conservation measures. The 2007 documentary is made possible in part thanks to sponsors Shell Oil Company, The Partnership Foundation, Lower Colorado River Authority and Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority. By late this month, interested parties should be able to watch a video preview of the documentary on the State of Water Web site (http://www.texasthestateofwater.org).
