Documentary in Works on Spring Lake Park Man Killed in Mpls. Workplace Shooting
Keith Basinski died Sept. 27 while making a stop as a UPS driver at Accent Signage. Local filmmaker Deacon Warner is paying homage to him in a new documentary, the Southwest Journal reports.
It's been less than three weeks since Spring Lake Park resident Keith Basinski died in the mass workplace shooting at Accent Signage in Minneapolis while he made a stop as on his route as the neighborhood's UPS delivery driver.
But already Deacon Warner, a resident of Minneapolis' Bryn Mawr neighborhood, has a documentary video on Basinski nearly completed, the Southwest Journal reported Tuesday:
Taking the suggestion of resident Iliana Wilson, Warner interviewed people about their memories of Basinski, who worked in Bryn Mawr for 29 years.
“He was more than a UPS driver, he had a real presence,” said Warner, who teaches video production through IFP Media Arts.
“It’s neat to listen to neighborhood residents’ different reflections—how many different ways you can impact somebody’s life,” he said.
Basinski's siblings recently sent a card to the parents of Andrew Engeldinger, the Accent Signage employee who shot and killed five coworkers and Basinski on Sept. 27, 2012, the Star Tribune reported in an article about Engeldinger's parents' struggles to help their son with mental illness.
The Engeldingers also spoke with Minnesota Public Radio in an interview airing Tuesday and Wednesday.
