The Fatherhood Project

Have you ever signed up for a project and thought, "How did that happen?" 

Well, I have recently been asked to produce a pilot for the Youtube Channel "Soulpancake"

Rainn Wilson sent out a tweet and I submitted a pitch and got asked to shoot a pilot. 

The show is called "The Fatherhood Project." 

Everybody is affected by their father. Maybe he wasn't there, maybe he was there too much. 

I am on a quest to find out what it means to be a good father. I have 3 kids, 2 boys and 1 girl. 

The more I dive into fatherhood the less I know and the more I second-guess my approach to the zen/art of fatherhood.

The series consists of 3-5 minute videos documenting the journey of finding out what it means to be a good father.

It features interviews with people answering the simple questions: 

“What did your dad do right and what did he do wrong?”

“What did you do right with your kids and what would you do differently?”

I couldn't be more excited about the project!!

Here is how you can help:

1. Sign up to be notified by email about show updates.

I love spam emails from people asking me to sign up for their social media course on how to get 1,000 followers. (Insert sarcastic laugh) Don't worry I won't spam you.

2. Send me your story. I need show ideas. Answer these questions and put it in the message field of the sign up form. 

“What did your dad do right and what did he do wrong?”

“What did you do right with your kids and what would you do differently?”

3. Follow me on instagram, twitter, and or facebook and get updates and the occasional cute picture of Audrey

What Would You Like to Do if Money Were No Object?

What would you do if money was no object? While to truly live like this is impossible, I think we can live our lives as close to this as possible, but we have to figure out what we don't like in order to discover what we would do if money was no object. Doing this allows us to narrow down what it is that we truly love to do. It also allows us to discover new things that we love.

If money was no object I would probably do nothing for a very long time. After a while I think I would get bored and end up doing something close to what I do now, which is telling stories, solving problems and being a good Dad.

I came across this video via Nofilmschool.

I try to align my company with clients that are like minded and allow us to do what we do best. Anytime I take on a job because of the cash it usually ends in disappointment. This always causes a dilema when actual bills need to be paid.

If I can spend a life solving problems, finding solutions and helping organizations I would be happy.

Here are a couple of projects that we have produced recently that I would do even if money was no object. All of these projects were done for free and with no budget. To be honest, this is some of our best work.


Our regular DOP and editor Matt Youngblood recently tweeted this:  GET PAID / CREATE / HAVE FUN ...usually I pick two, lately it's been all three. Feeling fortunate and in good company.

I couldn't agree more.

This past week we had the privilege to shoot for We Are Mammoth at FEW Spirits, and The Starter League at 1871 in Chicago. Both places were very inspiring and amazing places to shoot.

When you try hard to align yourself with good stories and good clients great things can happen. More and more we are spending our time telling great stories for great company's.

I think that you can tell good stories and sell good products.

I can't wait to finish up these projects and as soon as they are done we will post to show you. Here are a couple of pics from our most recent shoot @ The Starter League.
