That’s a Wrap
The month has flown by. Steve, Billy an I have traversed the east coast, starting in Zephyrhills, FL and went as far north as Toledo, OH before pointing Billy’s Sienna south, back to FL.
What did we see? What did we do? Was it challenging? Was it worth it? Who did you meet, visit with and catch up with?
All these questions and their answers are swirling around my brain. Luckily, as the documentary moves into post, I will be able to thoughtfully digest and incorporate the answers into the feature length film.
If all goes well, you can expect a late 2012 release. I am planning on a cross platform release, to reach as many viewers as possible.
I can say that the journey was wonderful, rewarding and means everything to me. Steve and Billy taught me a lot, for example, no matter what time we headed to a venue for a lecture, we will arrive in time. Note: IN time does not mean the time we planned on arriving.
All in all, Billy drove us 5,367 miles. That’s a lot of daytime and late night bleary eyed silliness.
There were surprises, stays with dear friends houses, hobnobbing with the famous and the salt of the earth. We went from churches to cemeteries, NYC to Parole, the NY Palace to Motel 6. I wouldn’t have changed a single thing.
We actually did retrace part of the tour route we took while Ringling Clowns back in 1984. At moments on this trip, we were right back there, being young, stupid and hilarious.
So, a big thank you goes out to our contributors who helped us financially and emotionally. Thank you Billy Scadlock for being a great traveling companion and driver. And thank you Steve Marshall for living your dream, no matter how challenging, and bringing me along for this part of the ride.
Sayonara til the next Hello.
