We don’t know where they came from. And we don’t know why they came.

But we do know where they were going. And we finally know their objective.

Exhibit 5, Part 2 Release Announcement


be right back

June update for Exhibit 5

07 Earth_by_3DPORFTOLIO_04

Hi my friends.

This month will see the assembly of part 2 to the last exhibit. Currently I have come into town to camp out at a local motel with good enough wifi to work on the next exciting chapter.

I only have enough funds at the moment to spend 5 days here, so I will most likely be up to my armpits with alligators attempting to compile as much as possible during this time.

As it sits right now, we are looking at a potential release date the first week of July, though this can change depending on staging completions of the schedule.

There will be a video trailer announcement as soon as there is content to produce it.

In other news, the Vimeo account came to expiration the end of May and this has been maintained without the need for a request for funds, so thank all of you for your kind contribution to the project.

I would like to send out a special thanks to Ryan B. for allowing me to get to town this week to work (also having air conditioning in 95+ temps isn’t a bad thing either).

There is some even more exciting news coming, but is not far enough along yet to announce. But I will hint that the next steps here are finding some interesting outcomes that will hope to put Brian O Films on the map, finally.

Cheers all, stay well, be safe, and hope to get a chance to speak with you again soon.

Exhibit 5 on schedule

meeting room

Hello everyone.

The latest Exhibit 5 has been completed and is waiting in the wings on Vimeo for release on Saturday, April 14th, at 6 PM Eastern US.

Much thanks to everyone for your patience and continued support, for without you this couldn’t have been done.

Many many thanks to Gerry Newby, who graciously took care of the hotel in Denver to afford me enough time to produce, edit, record, narrate and compile the finals.

What normally would have taken 14 days or more, was accomplished in 9.

(Of course, I was at the keyboard non-stop)

A quick word on the final audio. I forgot to pack my headphones and all I had to mix the audio tracks was a pair of ear buds. For anyone in audio recording, ear buds “ain’t good enough”. The fidelity is still there but it will be somewhat HOT until I can rebalance the audio on headphones and replace the video.

So for now, please be aware you will need to turn down the volume by at least 1/3 to 1/2 or risk blowing your ears off.

And finally, stay tuned at the end of the video 🙂

My many apologies for the lengthy hiatus. The time is at hand.

Despite today’s date, this is no joke, no playing, no smoke and mirrors.

It never has been, and never will be.

Cheers my friends.

P.S. … the date was wrong only because I have been up all night working on these promos. Again, my apologies. It is fixed.  😦

BrianO off-grid and out of touch


Hi my friends.

I am currently back in Denver for only another day, and felt it necessary to drop a line in here and let everyone know what is going on.

At the moment, I am now living full time in Fisher Peak Ranch in southern Colorado: completely off grid (no utilities, no power, no water, damn sure no internet).

It has taken this long to secure a place there so as not to die from freezing to death, or being eaten by bears.

The pic above is a sunset I shot across the other mountain from the one I am on, just for point of view.

Here is another from above 6500 feet showing the valley floor:



I have not been able to run the production computer to continue the ASCENSION project as the power requirements and connectivity at the moment cannot support it.

Not to worry. I am currently trying to acquire office space in town (about 5 miles away) to begin to revisit getting the production equipment back on line as soon as possible.

In the mean time, please forgive the delay as living in this manner is a daily struggle and anyone who has or is attempting to live in this manner will attest to the intricacies of natural off grid living being somewhat more difficult than you may have dreams of.



From the above two pics (2 generators and a trailer) I will let you formulate your own opinion.

So I will be back soon, tons of video and pics as we have been shooting the entire three months we have been there.

The Book will restart as soon as I can get a dedicated internet line and power (and lights & heat & whatnots) since currently this cannot be done from this place.

In the end, I must tell you that this place is beautiful, the quiet is deafening, and the wildlife is phenomenal.

Make no mistake – I am not gone – and Brian O Films will be back up and on soon.

Miss you all, Miss your comments and support so very badly, and I will look forward to throwing the switch on the very next chapter.

In the meantime – hang in there – I am.


Brian O, Trinidad Colorado.
