Here's what we've been up to...

One thing I’ve come to expect as a video production professional: this job takes you to some unusual places, doing unusual things and meeting unusual people…and animals.

…They both like to make mooooooovies!

Ok, that was lame, but give me a break...I’ve been working long and hard on this video!
