Well, here it is, 1127 2006.
Seems like it was a few weeks ago that I sent out this for 2005.
This is my 5th year sending out my 1127 email. So let’s start back
in November of last year. I was on a 63-day national tour with LA
band “Darci Cash” www.darcicash.com. We finished the tour
back in LA the day before Xmas 2005.
After being in LA enough time to wash my clothes and pack my
bags again, I headed up to Seattle to produce a feature film,
“Wake Up You’re Sleeping” directed by my friend Nathaniel
Bennett. We shot for about 30 days. We battled the rain each and
every day… fun times. Stay tuned for news and info!
I then left Seattle and headed for Park City to the Sundance Film
Festival, where my friend, Roger Ingraham was premiering his
feature film called “Moonshine” Very awesome real-life vampire
film. The easy 15 hour drive from Seattle to Park City ended up
being about 27 hours. The whole drive, roads were closed, and it
was snowing on and off the whole drive…….
The day after I got back from Utah, I began the production of a
short that my friend, Glenn Ripps, wrote and directed called
“Louder Than Words.” For the film, we shot 16,000 still photos on
a Canon 1D and the 20D. I was involved in the editing, doing the
pickups and finalizing the sound and music through May.
Then in May, I was invited to film in Africa for a human rights group
called Youth for Human Right International,
www.youthforhumanrights.org I spent three weeks documenting
the activities in Liberia and Ghana. While is Africa, I ended up
shooting 25 hours of footage and shot over 5000 photos.
I then had a day or two at home before leaving on the 45-day
Youth or Human Rights’ World Tour 2006. I traveled through 23
countries, shot over 75 hours of video and shot over 30,000
So now, here it is already November of 2006, I am working on
many new projects, doing lots of video editing and continuing with
photography. If you will be out in Park City in January for
Sundance, let me know.
As this is my annual “official 1127 email,” lots of things have
happened this year and many big projects are in store for 2007.

Good luck, peace, happiness, freedom, energy, and love.
