Adventure begins as I work on the motorcycle I plan to ride to San Fransisco.
I bought an old Yamaha XS1100 on Craig's List. It was a great deal but had been sitting for some years and I am still working on it after nearly a week.
It is all going to be worth it though when I get her running.
I am headed to make movies in a bigger way with a great team and a Red Epic camera to sweeten the shots.
We will be staying in a Mansion in Los Banos north of SF.
This all came from getting involved on Twitter. I saw a project I thought was worthy of attention an ingenious Stock footage project with 5k footage with affordable prices. I thought, brilliant, some for a dollar. I could use some 5k footage for a buck.
That was when I met Nate North. A filmmaker with extensive experience in web content and commercial projects.
Deathworld awaits and I'm in the mood for adventure.
Nate got a team together from IndieTalk.com Forum and we are going to shoot a script from one of my childhood favorite authors.
Harry Harrison is a Grand Master of Science Fiction and I started reading his Stainless Steal Rat series when I was 11.
DeathWorld is a solid story and has had 50 years in print.
I can' t wait to start.
But I have a road trip ahead and a motorcycle to make road worthy.
She is a beautiful motorcycle in her way. Lots of power.
Now I'm down to a gas leak from the tank, a battery issue and a carb that needs to be tuned up to make her run right.
Life is full of surprises and it's how you can roll with them that makes the difference.
We put a really cool Indiegogo campaign together to help fund raise for this adventure.
A Painting of Time, which is an actual feature length art form in it's own right that has to be witnessed to be fully appreciated.
Projects like these to pave the way to making a great feature film make it seem like stepping sones to something really big.
High Adventure I should say.
Thanks for tuning in.
