Making Progress

Tom here: Our 5 days on the Chesapeake Bay are almost over and Jenna Jane and I are feeling pretty fine about our progress on the documentary. We're tackling segments of the video and gathering our best footage so that we'll all know what kind of images we have as we go forward with scripting and additional interviews. As I write this we've done a rough cut that is almost 19 minutes long and focuses on festival preparation and the day of the festival. It feels GREAT to be making some headway on this huge undertaking.

Off to the river for a productive week

Jenna, Jane and Tom leave on July 16 for a week of "video camp" at Tom's uncle Frosty's house on the Rappahannock River/Chesapeake Bay. It's our hope that by getting away together we can make some more progress on the film. In the meantime, watch our You Tube video!

It's been a while....

Hello to anyone who might still check the blog occasionally - hopefully it will begin to reactivate again as we start making progress on our next phase - editing the documentary.

Last night was Jenna's 40th birthday and Jason was reminded that one year before we had been teaching the children of Jomsom to play Twister and singing Happy Birthday to Jenna and a guy from New York who happened to also be in town and dropped by the Dancing Yak to see what all the commotion was. That also means that today, June 26, is the one year anniversary of the actual festival that celebrated the painting's arrival in Jomsom. Wow.

In about 3 weeks Jenna and Jane and I will go to my uncle Frosty's place on the Chesapeake Bay, right at the mouth of the Rappahannock River, to work on the documentary. Jane has been "writing the script in the air" recently and it will be good to leave with something concrete. We did produce a brief video about the ceremony that Tsampa held in honor of the Virginia Tech shootings, and soon I hope to figure out how to post it here in the blog, or at least on You Tube for those of you who are interested. Namaste!
