Have Buffalo, Will Travel: A Documentary About The Herd

Anyone can make a film but few can tell a story as well as Ernie Smith of Skelly Films does with Have Buffalo, Will Travel, a documentary that sets out to explain who the Herd is and why we do the things we do. The film succeeds, mainly because Smith chose to let the Herd tell their own story in a series of interviews conducted at some of Donna the Buffalo's most popular festivals. These interviews are interspersed with clips of the band performing and the Herd enjoying. Whether you're new to the Herd or personally know each of the interviewees, you're going to learn more about DtB's dedicated fanbase from Have Buffalo, Will Travel. To see a teaser of the film or for more information, visit or contact (posted 12/12/10)
