Joe Paterno tribute film planned

The Porterfield Group and Ten Media Group launched a 50-day fundraising campaign last week for its newest film, “ The People’s Joe.”

The one-hour documentary looks at former Penn State coach Joe Paterno through the eyes of ordinary people.

“After producing “ The Joe We Know,” in 2011, we realized even more how unique Joe Paterno’s story really was. As storytellers, his contributions seemed too compelling to ignore,” said Porterfield CEO Michelle Hagan in a news release.

The Porterfield Group also debuted “ 365 Days: A Year in Happy Valley” last year.
