Stardom here we come!

Sorry for the cliff hanger on our last post I wanted to wait till we had a couple of pictures to post.
Pictures like this one:



That's right folks, Christy and I are well on our way to stardom! Our friend Eli is a film maker and wanted to do a film about us. We are obviously pretty excited about it. Eli showed us some of his previous work and it's quite impressive.


It's not clear exactly what will come of all of this in terms of length/format of the film. Eli and Jason, the sound guy, spent a good portion of the day here, filming 90 minutes of footage today of me working (I only know that because his camera can only capture 90 minutes and he ran out of space this afternoon). They spent Saturday filming Christy working, and Thursday they shot scenery . They plan on coming out for several days during the loading and firing of the kiln. So certainly it appears Eli will have quite a bit of footage.
Yep, fame and fortune are simply around the corner.

Our chickens played a staring role on Thursday


Given the high quality of the work Eli showed us we're pretty excited to see what he comes up with. There is certainly no time line though, and given that he and his wife have a two month old baby we don't expect to be hitting the big screen (or youtube) any time soon. We are still pretty excited though, and expect to be hitting red carpets nation wide in short order.

Hey, that is pretty cool. If you hit the big time we can say "we knew those two were going to hit it big someday"
All jokes aside that is really great for you guys!!!

I can't believe that Winks or Charlie didn't find their way to the front of the camera at some point! Where do you friends anticipate showing this?

This is very cool - I sure hope I get to see it!
