Jelly Telly

I've posted a couple of times about Phil Vischer and his current project, "Jelly Telly." Well he has a new post on his blog with the announcement of the Jelly Telly "official" promo video!

Do you have an idea for a series of short videos that would appeal to children? If you do, you really should check this out!

The video has lots of clips and examples of the kind of content that they will be creating and Phil has more news for all Christian filmmakers. Hint: he is looking for media content for Jelly Telly.

Visit the website, and watch the video!

New ReelCast Video

While sitting on the side of the road, stranded in Nevada, I decided to whip out my camera and shoot something fun while we were waiting. The result....a 30 commercial that has been titled "Stranded!"

This video was not planned, was shot on the fly and was shot in under 20 minutes.

To see the video, 'click here' - comments are welcome! :)

If you are on broadband internet speeds, please go to my website to view a smaller version of the video.

California Trip - 2

Praise the Lord!! The new radiator is in the van and we are scheduled to head out at 5AM. We've enjoyed our stay here and we've made quite a few new friends, but we are glad to have a fixed van and headed back home.

California Trip - 1

We headed for the west on June 24th (Tues) across New Mexico and Arizona visiting the Petrified Forest and Grand Canyon (Wed) along the way. Staying on schedule with our crew of ten people is quite an achievement that has been rarely accomplished on this trip. As a result, we arrived at the Grand Canyon a little bit later than we expected but it allowed us to be there when the sun set! God's creation is really beautiful.

When we arrived in California we first drove through L.A. (Thurs) to visit some relatives including one of my great uncles. It was a great time of swimming, singing and visiting. Next stop was San Fransisco (Sat) to see more relatives (my mom's cousins) who gave us a tour of the city. We visited a glass exhibit at a museum, the Japanese gardens, rode the subway/cable car, walked to fisherman's wharf (a long walk,) rode a trolley, went out to eat and drove across the golden gate bridge. That was quite a day!

The great Golden Gate

Sunday we found a church at 11:30 :) After that we drove to Yosemite National Park and saw some beautiful waterfalls and mountains. We went back on Monday to look around some more.

Beautiful scenery at Yosemite.

Hear are some pictures of the bear and deer we saw.

Yours Truly filming at Yosemite

The same guy again

The conference started on Tuesday evening, but since we attended in Big Sandy, most of us toured around and relaxed :) We stayed at a nice hotel (Hawthorn Suites) which had a hot breakfast each morning - what a treat compared to the regular "continental breakfast" at the other hotels we had been staying at during the trip.

Friday we began our long trek back home - scheduled to arrive in OKC Tues evening, after a few stops in Colorado....but it seems that God had other plans because it is now Monday evening and we have been stuck in Ely, Nevada since Sat. We broke down on what is called "the loneliest road" and let me tell ya, it is well named. But, praise the Lord, several people stopped and they were kind enough to hunt down some help for us because there was no cell phone reception where we were stuck at. Not only that but we were 45-50 miles from Ely which is known to be "the remotest town in the U.S." - Salt Lake, Reno and Las Vegas are all 240 miles away!! Now, try to get a new radiator with those statistics...nonetheless God is faithful and a couple from the church we visited were headed to Salt Lake anyway and offered to pick up a radiator for us! They are, Lord willing, on their way back right now and we should have it put in later tonight. Hopefully we can take off tomorrow morning....keep praying :) Oh, and the hotel we have been staying at for the last couple of days took pity on us and gave us a great rate! The people here are fabulous and there is so much more to tell about but I guess I'll wait till I have some more pictures.

Being stuck on the side of the road for a couple of hours provided a great "short video" opportunity - you'll be hearing more about it after I get back home and back to my computer ;)

I'll post more pictures and more details later...

Widow's Might

They have quite a bit of BTS pictures and video on their blog. It's looking really good!

Ely, Nevada

No, this isn't Photo Shopped

More details to come...

From the West Coast

Sorry for the long delay in blog posts but our family has been traveling to CA for a home school conference. We actually left a week early and stopped to see the Grand Canyon, drove through L.A. to see relatives, toured San Fransisco with more relatives, visited Yosemite and we finally arrived in Sacramento today!

California has some really beautiful scenery, I'll try to upload some pictures in the not-too-distant future :)

We will back back in the great state of Oklahoma July 9th (that's the schedule anyway)
