Guess that it’s been a busy fall. Parent went away twice in Sept, almost had an editing project, starting to bike more, more converting work coming in/rumors of work to come, and a had a film this pass weekend.
As some may know the festival was right in Westfield. For the non-locals thats only 15min from my house. My actor won e a best actor award.
As for my new Film idea i now have my PR person on it. And long story short, through my dad’s company the National Organization on Disability has agreed to distribute the Survey, which is huge.
Oh my goodness, last week was such a great week career-wise.
On monday i got a fb pm request from someone who wanted me to the final edit for a movie that she did for a 72 hour film challenge. Even after telling her my limitations she was still willing to work with me. She came out to bring me the footage saturday.
Wednesday i got an email from someone i asked about interviewing for my new film project. It proved to be quite the ah-ha moment. She had written all her answers written and her disability isn’t physical. Thus proving, A. This can be done in a survey form, and B this idea does not only cover physically disabled.
Lot to do now. Solution, develop an i-help-you,-you-help-me relationship with the person I’m editing for and i have someone to create a surveymonkey.
If you or someone you know has a disability and went to/could of gone to college, please comment below. I’d love to get them the link to the survey when it’s ready.
I’m not going to dwell on it but I was surprised by the reaction when i posted the video of my dive on Facebook. The number of comments and people who came up to me…
With that out of the way, it’s sadly labor day weekend. How on earth did that happen? Anyway let’s reflect on this summer. It was hotter than hell until the 2nd week of august. Then fall came early.
Labor Day morning:
Went to do swamp. Was on that hill at far end of swamp when the rain started; pretty steady. Not quite the farest point. However for those who don’t live here, there’s no shelter for at least 4mi behind me. So I needed to continue up the hill, find shelter and call from the farthest point. As my mom said, i couldn’t possibly be farther. Here’s hoping your Labor Day plans aren’t ruined.
For the first time in my 20yrs at my town’s community pool i went off the diving board. I ‘can’t’ swim… I quote can’t because while i make it a point to never go where I can’t touch, i’m fairly convinced that i could get to the side if i had to. So i had the manager steve in the water and my high school friend Dan who came on his day off to walk me out.
What surprised me was That after jumping i went for the ladder; not Steve.

For a day that’s suppose to hit 90, the swamp wasn’t bad this morning.
Last week actually turned to be a great week despite not having my scooter. They had extra helpers so i got one which was great. My 8yr old Gopro was acting up towards the begining of the week. So my helper Bill started doing some on his iphone. This allowed for a much more relaxed week up there than i’ve had since being a camper. Hung out with old friends, went to bed at a early time a couple night and found myself in the middle of an epic pool noodle war. Best video yet. Thinking i may do some changes next year based on how well it went.
Otherthan a couple days in Boston next week my summer adventures are done. Studio461 is going to be a major aug focus. Along with talking to some more people about disabilities after college.
I’ve been going to the same family camp for a good 15yrs. I’ve been the camp video guy for at least 8yrs. My scooter makes it possible for me to get pretty much everything’s.
However it got taken to a shop friday. (i wont say why because that would be dad bashing, and i don’t ever do that) Anyway was to late to rent one. So this will be interesting. I will have help this year and it may get my creative juices flowing.
