THE HUNT! (for treasure)

If there's one thing my family likes, it's treasure-hunting shows. Specifically, the real-life treasure hunts. Whether its "Snake Island" "Oak Island" or "Expedition Unknown", my family is glued and, in fact, seeks out more. We've found ones looking for treasure in the southwest, and searching for WWII treasure, plus "Alaskan Yukon Gold" and plenty more I can't even keep track of. So... when I was asked to work on this project... Obviously, I was very excited. Then, add to it, the big humor aspect and I was totally in. Like finding the Holy Grail, I think figuring out the tone may have been a bit elusive... but ultimately, it was all about the search! And who better to follow than that famed archeologist - Indiana Jones!

The Boy is back!

This past month's challenge was getting people to come see "Brahms: The Boy II". For me, it was a bit of fun... albeit there were definitely a number of hurdles to get over. Specifically, marketing a PG13 horror movie to the teen crowd. I think its the first time I've dealt with a horror movie that wasn't aimed at adults. But times are changing, and I expect this definitely will become a trend. So... how to make a doll scary? Or, at least, uber creepy? Enter the child nursery rhyme. Something they used to good effect with the first movie, so a new one was invented. Beware!!
