We Continue to Move Along...

Well, he we are five weeks later. And guess what? No bad news! As a matter of fact, things are progressing nicely.

Joel and I got together just over a week ago to write the new script for the new pitch-reel. I had contacted the fire department of the community in which I live to shoot the video here. However, that was several weeks ago and the last I had heard from their PIO was that our request had been forwarded to the city attorney. Why it had to go there, considering we were not showing their name, we were not doing any ride-alongs, etc., only Heaven knows. Anyway, we sent our the script to the rest of the partners and got some great ideas back for some minor revisions and shooting angles.

In the meantime, Joel contacted a friend with the Ft. Lauderdale Fire Department, explained our plan to them and they welcomed us with open arms. So, if all goes as planned, we'll be shooting the video next week, Wednesday through Friday, as needed.

For this shoot, we're bringing in the "big guns," Mike Zimmer, the former chief videojournalist for the local NBC affiliate. Mike is a ten-time EMMY-award winner, as well as a winner of both the DuPont and Peabody awards. He also served as the president of the South Florida Super Bowl Host Committee last year. Oh yeah, and he produces and shoots his own show, "Sportsman's Adventures with Rick Murphy," which airs on Sun Sports Network.

From a personal standpoint, it's nice to be able to look forward to working on this show again, And though there are no guarantees ahead of us, we are making forward progress. We're doing some things out-of-order, such as shooting the pitch-reel before we actually re-write the treatment for the show. However, since we're taking a whole new direction from what we shot in San Francisco (under poor direction), that's OK. BTW, did I mention that when the video is ready, we going to let you, our followers see it and let us know what you think. We'll post it on You Tube (DalmatProd), Facebook (search for Dalmatian Productions, Inc.) and right here on the blog. So you have that to look forward to!

Til next time...
