I’m working hard on our short film submission for the National Geocaching Day Film Festival! Today I’m going to make the skeleton video so we can drop in our clips, and I just recorded the audio!
The song I’m going to be using is very special to my kids and I. I made it up one night while we were playing around. Madison was probably 4 and Tristan could barely walk at 1 years old. I started it off really slow and soft and Madison danced around like a little ballerina, and then gradually I changed the tempo and strumming pattern and it got faster and faster until she was jumping around the room like a maniac! Then back to slow again.
Whenever I play that song or even part of it to this day she recognizes it and remembers that night. If we get to hear it while we watch our short film played in Seattle it will be very magical for us!
I am hoping to submit the film this Sunday. We have a little more video to shoot, but we should be able to get it in by then. The deadline is July 7th! I want to have enough time to make any corrections that Groundspeak might have for us so I gotta get it in!
If you haven’t signed up for our email list yet go do it! I have my first short (ultra short) story available for those who sign up, and another short story is in the works and should be out within a month or so!
