I arrived back in Los Angeles, after a crazy couple weeks filming at Burning Man 2010, for a great documentary project, then I flew to Toronto, to help shoot some pick-up scenes for a feature called Skeleton Lake.

Burning Man 2010

Posted by mikehedge on September 17, 2010

This year’s Burning Man was absolutely beautiful. Thank you for everyone making it such a great year! This year I joined a film team to work on an ambitious multiple-year documentary.

Tesla Tech Conference 2010

Posted by mikehedge on August 15, 2010

I was not able to attend the Tesla Tech Conference last year, so I really wanted to go this year. The event being all the way in Albuquerque, NM was a bit far, but several days before the conference, I got a call from Marko Rodin about joining the team to document the week. I […]

I decided very last minute to head to Austin, Texas for SXSW, because a couple friends were premiering their films there. I also wanted to visit with my grandma and family in Texas after the festival. I decided to make a huge roadtrip out of it, and I actually headed out to the east coast […]

kickstarter SIMILO

Right after I returned from the epic Park City trip, I launched a huge crowdfunding fundraiser to get the final VFX shots finished for Zac&Mac’s genius shortfilm SIMILO. It was a huge effort. Together with the large indie film community, all the fans of the original short, and a bunch of my closest friends and […]

Sundance/Slamdance 2010

Posted by mikehedge on February 10, 2010

Back from Sundance 2010! It was a truly amazing experience. This year, I decided last minute to drive out to Park City for Slamdance and Sundance. The drive out was a pretty rough experience. At times it was 10mph through thick snow storms. I ended up making it without driving off the road and without […]

During the months of October and November I shared a ton of things on my facebook wall. I shared links to things that inspired me, I asked questions and got feedback, I also shared some things that people should be aware of. I have not been very vocal with all the information I have. Maybe […]

Truth About Our History

Posted by mikehedge on November 12, 2009

My friends over at Panacea have put together probably one of the most important collections ever. Free energy technology is real and has been real for a very long time. I have been doing extensive research in this field ever since I read Atlas Shrugged. There are countless people who have developed all sorts of […]

Short Film with Ruairi

How does one take a moment to reflect? How does one put into words the experiences of life? Here’s a quick update. My friend Robert Hogg and his company, Toy Kite Software launched a crazy genius iphone game called iSamurai. If you have an iphone, it’s a pretty genius app. One of my major inspirations is a […]
