Shattered My Record!!

Hey everyone, on June 14th, I broke my old clover hunting record of 27 4-leafers in one sitting, by finding a total of 88 in my friend’s yard.  This brings me closer to my annual journey up Enger Tower to scatter another 88 4-leafers to the winds on July 24th, and to completing another batch of clover pendants.

Gathering Mats for a New Batch!

Hey everyone!  I have been shopping for materials to start my next batch of 4-Leaf Clover Pendants, and this batch should be significantly bigger than my first batch of 45.  I am expanding my horizons a little, so I have some surprise clover-type items coming, and I’m really excited to see them done, but I think I still have some shopping to do before I get started.  I am still looking for an alternative adhesive, but as that would make this experimental, I will still be using my old adhesive on most of my new pendants, and those will take a little over a year to sufficiently set and dry.  I’ll let you know when I get started, and maybe I’ll be able to take you along through the process!

Here we have some raw footage and blooper highlights from several of my video projects.  You can see how we look without a different background keyed in, and maybe somebody might find that interesting.  I brought in a little of my work with miniatures in film to show the scale of these tiny worlds I have had the pleasure to run around in.  The footage also shows a little of how Jack Schmidt can lighten up a set.  That’s me in the werewolf mask, having a dance between takes.  I would be in more of these, but I usually film all the parts I can film by myself after everybody else goes home.  We also get a snippet of my mother in my hypothetical movie Trailer, “The Knutcracker,” and a shot of my honorary Key Grip, showcasing my Boom, made of parts from his hardware store.  In the final string of shots, we can see “Evie,” in one of the most adorable yet frustrating shoots I’ve ever done, for a hypothetical commercial, “Jell-O Daze.”  Her father was incredibly patient with her over the several hours we tried to get her to say she doesn’t like green-beans, and then throw them in the next scene: She didn’t want to, because she did, in fact, like green beans, and didn’t want to throw them, but eat them.  It took pudding, patience, and a “Frozen” doll, but that was my first actual shoot with a child subject, and I learned a lot.
