Update #4

Hey all, just wanted to keep you posted as to the goings on with all this stuff.

I am currently writing this from down in LA where myself and my friend Kyle will be crossing over the boarder into Mexico tomorrow to shoot a promo video for an organization that is trying to help orphanages in Mexico through the Tortilla Chip industry.  

I agreed to come along to help them with the video.  It's not a paying gig, Kyle took care of my plane ticket, and I jumped on the chance to get out of central Oregon however briefly.  Prayer's would be much appreciated, as this is going to be an interesting experience as far as what the team going down there looks like, and all the details are still floating around in the air in terms of what we are actually going to try to capture for this video.

In other news, we haven't been able to get up to Bonney Butte to do any filming for that project in the last couple of weeks because there was a road closure due to fire.  They finally re-opened the road this week, but it won't be until Friday next week after work that I will be able to get up there to film again.  The season up there is coming to an end soon, so we are really hoping for some good weather next week so we can get the last couple of shots we need.  If it doesn't wok out, we may not be able to get what we need for the film this year.  Which would be really unfortunate.  But it has been a challenge, with Kilns and Antioch work, and it hasn't worked out as well as I had hoped it would.  I've had a lot of frustrations coming out of both gigs, and I really feel like come January I need to step away from both jobs.  Not sure what I am going to do instead yet, but it has become really clear to me that I can't keep on existing like this.

Our hope is that a couple more gigs would fall into place between now and then so that I could leave those jobs but still be making enough to live and keep working on these films.  The alternative is that we save what we can and try to go a couple of months with just working on personal projects and pushing the brand as much as possible.

Anyway, that's what's going on currently.  I'll give you all another update sometime next week to let you know how Mexico went.  

As always thank you so much for your love and support.
