Major News – Outside In Budget Slashed – Focus on Donations and Sponsors
It's been a interesting couple of months since the media coverage and YouTube exposure hit. Lots of interest in the film but ultimately, I turned down the two investor groups. Never an easy decision but one that has led to some serious and creative thinking about the film and funding.The bottom line of this thinking is that "Outside In" is returning to its roots as...

I'm in the Washington, DC area and just finished the taping of the "Around Space" program. They are very nice group of people including the host Dr. Kent Miller.

IMAX in a basement – “The Song” and other Youtube Adventures
It's been quite a week.

Great Feature Story in the High Point Enterprise
It's been a media bonanza for "Outside In" this week. The High Point Enterprise interviewed myself and supporter of the film Ken Randall last week.
