Jim Barker, who runs DeKalb Video Productions, is turning Steve Bigolin's "A Journey Through DeKalb County" series into a more visual format.
Bigolin started writing history columns for the Daily Chronicle on a bi-weekly basis in 2000.
The following spring, Bigolin began writing weekly columns for the paper that would later be turned into the book series.
"His interest helped spark the Chronicle in going that route," Bigolin said.
Volume 2 of the series was published last year.There are plans for a third and final installment.
Bigolin, who doesn't own a DVD player, had never thought about putting his books in that format.
"I'm just kind of going along for the ride," he said.
During the filming process, Barker has traveled around the county talking to people who may live in or have ties to the places mentioned in Bigolin's writings.
According to Barker, Bigolin had a big part in selecting what places from the book would be featured on the DVD.
Bigolin has been studying the history of DeKalb County, especially its architecture, for more than 30 years.
"It's always been a love of mine, and I've tried to share that with other people," he said.
Bigolin's studying began after he visited the Ellwood House Museum when he was a graduate student at Northern Illinois University.
"That really hooked me on local history," he said.
Bigolin continues to write a weekly history column for the Daily Chronicle.He currently is writing columns that will be in his next series of books, "Landmarks of the Barb City."
After he finishes his collection of columns on DeKalb landmarks, Bigolin plans on doing a similar series concentrated in Sycamore.
If everything goes well and the Daily Chronicle continues to publish a book every year, Bigolin hopes to have all of his books out by 2010.
"I like to say my life revolves around things that are historical," he said.
