That's not a bad thing...

So we have been spending time planning our approach to the industry. It is always a hard sell when "introducing" yourself and product, even more so in the entertainment industry. We are continually getting great feedback and certainly expect to be moving would just be great if things always moved at a quicker pace.

But as we wait, we continue to drive around on our Moto Guzzi finding fun spots to enjoy. It always happens, too, that when we are riding that so many people wave and take pictures of us. It's fun to see people do a trouble take when they see us for the first time. Whether it's a family, businessman, soccer mom or even a Harley rider, most people enjoy seeing us and want to acknowledge the connection in some way. This type of behaviour is why "My Family Goes..." will be a success: 'cause it puts smiles on people's faces and that's not a bad thing.

Just a quick update on things. We finished a promotional package (power point presentation) today and that will be sent out to some of the companies and channels on our "list".

We are excited and I promise to update more frequently...even if it is just to smile. :)

Too much computer work!

What a long day! After spending some time yesterday doing some voice over work for the teaser, I worked on completing the website today...actually three websites! I must say it's great to be working with so many professional people...almost makes me feel a bit smart, too.

To finalize the teaser reel, Amy, Delilah and I worked with our editor / Director of Photography Skye Borgman to perfect some of the odd bits of audio that didn't quite make it when we filmed live. And although we are 2000 miles away from Skye, we worked with modern technology and came through feeling good with our efforts.

For the websites, I worked mostly alone. (I can't wait to have other people do the website stuff as it makes me feel really old not knowing the lasted technology.) I felt my efforts paid off, even if it took me about 7 hours.

It's nice to be able to see the progress we have made in a couple of short months. It seems like yesterday when the crew arrived from Los Angeles to begin production week.

So, here we are! We can't look back now. I know it won't be an easy journey from this point, but when has life been easy for any of us, right? But this journey continues to be exciting. I feel confident and proud of our work, especially Amy and Delilah's efforts. It may have been my idea, but without them and their professionalism and enthusiasm, there would be no family to go anyplace.

Together, we look forward to our journey and hope you do, too. Thanks for your support!

Hello Everyone! I tried uploading the teaser reel here, but kept getting into snags. But don't worry, you can still see it at We hope you enjoy it and feel free to send your comments to us:

We saw a 15 minute rough draft of the pilot! All I can say is, "WOW"! Of course I have great personal pride in this show, but I realised that the material I viewed tonight has true merit....which makes me even more proud.

Delilah comes across so sweet and lovable. She has many 1-liners, too! She's a kid, right?

Amy is beautiful and an excellent interviewer. I remember when I first told her about the idea, I believe her first words were..."What?! I can't do that!" Well, I saw her do it tonight and she looked great: A real natural!
And if I may say so, I believe I held my own, too!

The editing staff will be working this 15 minutes down to 2/3 minutes for our reel. Once we have that in place, I will post it on the site. After that is done, we will then go "shopping!" But it won't be the type of shopping Amy and Delilah love to do:)

I received word today that the initial twenty hours of footage has been edited to two hours. So, now the editor must bring those two hours down to a couple of minutes to create the teaser reel. Should be fun, right?
Both Amy and I have decided not to partake in any part of the editing process. We both agree that a set of "new" eyes will bring the unique dynamics out of the shows' footage than our own. Plus, micro managing is never fun for anyone.

Just a couple of weeks until we have the reel!!!!

tired, but took the oppurtunity to entertain us.

Yeah, we've got more pictures...

The pictures from this series were taken at The Copper
