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 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

IMG_20170814_195809366_HDR

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.

SURPRISE !!

yay-happy-dog

Well my friends . . . . .

There were four very gracious contributors who stepped forward and allowed us to reopen not only the entire account, but we went PRO in the process.

This is a banner day good folk, because we are taking this story much much further.

I am still in the process of moving this next month which will take me away from the editing suite.

But rest assured, I have made arrangements ahead of time to acquire a satellite uplink for the internet which is far cheaper than broadband cable. So as we move forward there will be no delay or feed problems from my location.

More on that at a later date – let’s just say I am going off grid.

For now though, I still do not have the appropriate camera gear to continue shooting real time footage as I had wished, though in time this may rectify itself. We can only hope.

For now though, please accept my terribly humble and sincere vote of appreciation for the wonderful work YOU GUYS do, and for having pulled us from the fire.

From here on – we spare no truth, hide no pieces, and whitewash is reserved for Washington D.C.

Cheers – onward AND upward.

Brian O
