Hell yes…


Writing my book

News and Updates
I spent the better part of the weekend writing the book, and working on CGI models that are still raw, but on their way. 
I have made it from 6 years of age up until the time I met my late wife Gilly. A long cathartic road.
I’m sure there are not many people my age reviewing their life in this way. And some of the things that happened while writing are unexpected. Writing a book about your life and especially about these experiences (which are still considered taboo by the uninformed) is difficult at best.
Will I come under criticism? Yes definitely. Do I give a damn? No. And thanks to Robert Bigelow, Whitley Strieber and so many others who had the guts to come forward I can feel that way more than ever. Lets face it. You can come out of the closet about just about anything and they will give you a pat on the back. But this subject, not so. 
The media has not helped at all in the past. Or presently. They have always focused on the fringe elements, crazy people and hoaxers. But if anyone spoke about this with any credibility at all, they were discounted.
It all reminds of that town meeting scene in” Close Encounters.” Richard Dreyfuss  tries to tell the media about what he saw. But the minute a crazy person opened up his big dumb mouth about seeing a bigfoot with a foot this long(as referred to by spreading two ashtrays out apart) all the cameras in the room turn on him.
Spielberg knew of this well as many of us do. We don’t get a chance. But for me in the immortal words of Robert Bigeglow “I don’t give a Damn” if they do think I’m crazy.
And this criticism comes from people that are for the most part, unaware of their own universe. They even lack the knowledge that the sun is a star like the other stars they may or not be aware in the night sky.
This all makes it hard. I’m not trying to change the world, scare people or alarm the public in anyway. I’m only suggesting that reality may not be what you have been taught. To question it. Get answers for yourself and do the research before you form an opinion.
And so I tell my story like others have but without conjecture or theories. 
I have no answers. We don’t know honestly what we are dealing with so I just report the facts. I tell you what I know, not what I believe. Believe is a dirty word. It lacks substance.
But something is There.

I’ve been busy

I have been doing jobs I can’t share here for a medical device company. Pointed ears which I have been told repeatedly that I show this too often despite the fact I explained that I’m using all new materials and techniques to make them.

The main drive has been finishing our TV Pilot to take to market. There has been a huge lack of interest by my followers even resistance because I don’t sit on video building Star Trek models.

Star Trek models that fail to draw any kind of income since the demise of their worth being devalued by builders charging too little. In so many cases for the cost of materials and the bragging rights.

This is all fine and fair. People can do what they want and have every right to do it. But it doesn’t work for us. It isn’t cost effective and we can’t make a profit.

Our studio is a business as much as we are creatively passionate we have to do projects that support the studio.

We still get called from time to time for builds by clients that know there worth. When we do we make the models.

Additionally I love building models just for myself. And will continue to do so when time allows. And of course I will share with you on video as always. I will be back to the “Iron Giant” soon. Hang in there.

We so much appreciate your support and watching what we do at the studio but the TV pilot had to take the front position. We have spent a lot of our time and money to make it. It is nearly finished.

We have a new website for the TV pilot: it’s our hope you will visit the sight and enjoy it as we close the first episode.
