The Lost Weekend

We all have our days when events go in a different directions than expected; this has been one of those weeks for me. I don’t want to go into details, but I will say this: some good came out of it, and I will likely have more to show you as a result next week. Until then, I’m going to give you a slight hint in the picture below… See if you can guess.

Something to look at.

So it’s a rainy day here in Michigan, and our director is obsessed with six seconds of footage and you’d like something to watch. Well, if you click this link, you’ll go to our Making Of channel and take a look at some location footage. I don’t have much else to say right now… not yet… but see if you can guess what this mysterious van in Davenport, Iowa has to do with our series, in Michigan.

I should add that we’ve got less than a dozen calendars left now. They make great holiday gifts. Buy one!

Me and You and a Box That Goes “Vzzt!”

Hey there, Uzi-watchers! Do any of you have a spare mixer board? Somehow, our editor managed to make the current one go up in flames! If you can lend us one, we can get the next segment out. If not, please help us out by buying the calendars, and then we can use that money to buy a new mixer that way.

Jeremiah Hawkins as Agent Armstrong!

Coming soon: The Adventures of Agent Armstrong!

Getting Back on Schedule

Hi, folks!

Detroit Fanfare was a great experience this year, and I managed to do very well there. However, it did throw my schedule off–heck, that’s why I did an early post that week. Even little disruptions like that, though, do mess with personal rhythm, though, and I nearly forgot to do this blog. I realize that with readers in the low double-digits and subscribers in the single digits, it’s not like I’m really doing this for many beyond myself, but it’s worth doing for practice’s sake. That is the thing, though–it still remains important, and I don’t want it to get behind.

That brings us to a couple of items related to the YouTube site: First, it’s important to link to the channel (and subscribe) because sometimes the video links wind up getting broken when new versions of the older segments replace the previous videos. This recently happened with segment one of the pilot (go back, watch, and see if you can spot the differences!) The new segment is also up, too! Unfortunately, segment three may take a bit of time because we’ve had some equipment malfunctions of the fiery sort. If anyone has a spare mixer lying about, please contact me, and we’ll talk.
