South Carolina ETV friends and family have lost a dear friend and a very talented videographer.
Jimmie Dinkins was a videographer at ETV for many years. His enormous talent and his well-honed skills remain with us in the extraordinary content he created over his many years at South Carolina ETV.
We have a few remembrances of Jimmie we'd like to share with you.
We have to look no further than the ETV employee parking lot for inspiration for making a Bentwood Trellis and Kudzu Vine Basket. There, when he isn't on a television shoot, you will likely find Jimmie Dinkins' truck, laden with vines, full of baskets, and one of his own mounted, bentwood chairs. The truck is a bit of roving accessible art for all of us and a statement of Jimmie's continuing delight and wonder in the creative process.
