It got ACCEPTED!!


I don’t do these type of sit-down videos too often. Normally just when there’s some big news I think the last time I had a real sit-down one like this Was when kind of Jay Siemens media came to an end and thrive visuals began well, that was like Almost two years ago, I think and a lot has happened since then. I’ve pushed a lot harder into the YouTube space So I would say probably 70% my work right now is making YouTube videos for you guys and it’s been amazing It’s been the best creative outlet and I love it but I still like being behind the camera so that 30% that’s left is thrive is producing projects for other people and We’ve been fortunate enough that We’re able to you know, kind of narrow down and pick the projects we were incredibly passionate about so there’s there’s a couple big ones coming this year and I want to talk about specifically the Fly-fishing film tour, so I used to guide at Walsall Lake Lodge I got it there for four years made some amazing connections amazing friends memories playing Chicago doors Youtuber good friend of mine met him there. He still guides there but anyways I’ve been back there the last couple years filming some promo material for them and I’ve been in talks with the owner Mike Lemke and we’d kind of been thrown around the idea of creating an entry for the fly-fishing film tour the f3t and I’ve never done something like this before but it was something on my bucket list but I knew that with Entering a festival like this. You need more than just big fish and salomo and a pretty stuff. You need a good story So that’s where Mary and Barry came in while I got it a walleston I connected with a family from Texas the Austin’s and the Pettigrew’s I’ve actually been down to the ranch couple times That’s where Sam and I caught all those largemouth earlier this year But yeah I’ve guided family members. And so I had that bond to start off with and I wanted to tell their story they have fly-fishing deeply woven Into their into their inner being and it’s such a big part of who they are And Mary’s a pretty big character. So anyways, I’m gonna show you guys the trailer before the trailer plays I just want to say thank you to all the people that made this happen because the film got accepted 2020 I’m getting goose bumps.
