Several months ago we received a call from Kevin Campbell about a web series that him and Tim Miller were thinking about producing. Kevin had worked with Kira Niehuas when she was was 15 and felt  she had a real talent. Kevin had always hoped to work with Kira again. He approached her and I about the idea. Kira is use to blood and gore in her previous films. In "BackSlash" blood form her unsuspecting kidnapper was projected across her face and body when he was murdered by the "real" killer! And in "Gnerosity" Kira in a rage kills a well deserved bad guy.

The first meeting was at a coffee shop where Tim and Kira met for the first time. Ironically they were in "BackSlash" but Tim and Kira were never on at the same time.

The conversation was disjointed as Kevin and Tim tried to explain their idea. We all expressed our ideas and made our comments, when the meeting was done the possibilities were realized. Of course part of the discussion was how would we raise the funds to do something like this. Kevin Campbell did a lot of research on budgets, possibilities of fund raising while Tim, Kira and I began building out list of "Who." A book I read and hold dear to my hear, "The Power Of Who." written by someone I admire and have spoke to Bob Beaudine. As we all know, it is not about what you know but "Who" you know, what it really comes down to is your "Who" is the person you can always go to, they are there to help how ever they can.

Our first attempt to shoot our  promo video was a disaster to say the least. We scheduled an early morning  shoot on Tim's ranch where planes few over unexpectedly, a wind storm came up out of no where and doors and gates were slamming all around us. We then tried to meet at a park in Denver in a possible quite area. Shortly after we had the camera set up again with the wind. We finally set up in my car and proceeded to try to shoot our promo video. Picture above is Tim and Kira being good sports at our persistence at trying to accomplish what we had stared out to do. Alas it also came out like crap and we set our sites on another day... third time is a charm and we came up with our current promo. Let us know what you think and thanks for stopping buy!
