AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- Music filled the ears of folks in Augusta today. A local folk singer paid a visit to his home town. Daniel Antopolsky is a long way from home. He was born and raised in Augusta but now he lives in France. He's here to give folks from home a taste of his music, and a shot to be on the big screen.

Lights camera action. Daniel Antopolsky traveled thousands of miles to come home. "Augusta is my home town. I haven't been here in so long, we come back in the summer sometimes, but I don't get to see everyone enough," he said.

The singer lives a simple life on an organic farm in France, but today, he's living more like a celebrity than a farmer. "You know I always wrote songs and I always thought there was something to some of them," Antopolsky said.

On this visit home he isn't alone. Along with his guitar, he also brought a film crew with him. They're making a documentary called The Sheriff of Mars, and it's all about him. "It's so touching. Do I deserve all of this? I don't know..." he said.

Antopolsky says more than fame, he hopes this documentary and his music bring happiness to others. "It's just wonderful ... I just hope it gives some people what people give me. I hope it gives everyone something good," he said.

If you did come out to the show this afternoon, you might be making an appearance in that documentary. If you want more information on Antopolsky or the documentary, you can go to www.thesheriffofmars.com.
