Exciting Video and the Wild Kingdom Update
Such excitement since our report on "Our Friend the Mandrake Root"!!!!
We got a call from Kimberly Butler, who directed our idea, and the Lovely Byrdie, who did all the camera work, and editing, that the Video was done at last!!!!
You can see it HERE...
Watching it today brought back so many memories. The good, the bad, non-stop hours, hard work, Malena nearly drowning, (second time I saved her life, the first involved a Grape and the Heimlich Maneuver, she must be part cat) I learned so much shooting, most of all, that I like the behind the camera jobs better than in front of the camera.
I hope you like what we did. Chris Ewen wrote some beautiful music, Gregory Maguire magic lyrics, Kimberly had the ideas (That women is something else when working. Total concentration, I had only known her not at work before that)Byrdie did the camera work and editing, Ashley some acting and lots of tech (and sat in the COLD water for hours while the shots got set up, so Malena didn't get blue and frozen)
And Malena....Well, I tell you, that women worked harder than anyone, nothing she wouldn't do to get it right.
What did I do? Everything I could. Logistics, kind of a production co-ordinater. Very important.
Cabal the Berserker is turning into the Star of Dog School, which makes me happy, tho I have to be honest and say it isn't his first time thru this class...But now he is an inspiration to the others and proof it can be done.
Venus and Mim have been getting outside time in the evenings, on little purple leashes and harnesses. It takes two people because Mim is EVERYWHERE, and Venus sort of slinks, close to the ground.
Jungle Loves One and Two are getting better. I am ready to really start looking for the right home for them. I know they just need someone who will love them, and they will trust and be happy.
And we got to do Bee Things, which always makes me happy. Today was adding Brood Boxes.
The next few days are FLOOD WATCH days, so methinks it means rain is coming. Lots and lots of rain.
And Dan Guy is still contemplating taking over the world, along with Mr Paul Score. I'm betting they do it...
Love and Magic,
