Brass Ring Updated!

Apparently y'all have made an impression on the folks at NorthSouth Productions! I received this e-mail today:

Hi Merriwether,
I've been getting quite a few emails from your supporters. If I haven't already sent this to you, please see below to be considered further:

In our host we are looking for a combination of expertise and personality. True knowledge and experience in the wild animal and outdoor fields as well as the charisma and communication skills to engage us.

To be considered further, please film yourself or have someone film you answering the following questions and send me the tape (VHS, DVD, or mini-DV formats only) by Friday, February 15, 2008. Materials will not be returned. 5-10 minutes max. Shoot outdoors if possible.

- Your name, where you live, your occupation
- Describe your expertise relating to wild animals and the outdoors.
- Describe your experience working with wild animals, specifically in the field
- If you're hiking a mountain and a lion approaches, explain what you should do. Further explain what to do if the lion attacks you.
- What is the most dangerous encounter or experience you've ever had (animal related or other)?
- This show will have you out in the wild, communicating to viewers what to do in the event of an encounter with a deadly animal. The experience will be authentic -- you really will be on location encountering wild animals. Are you willing to do that?
- If possible, show us you working with or encountering a wild animal.

Thank you,

Amy Rapp | Head of Development
NorthSouth Productions

So I basically have two days to get a demo disc together. Yikes! Thankfully, I work well under pressure. It would help if I had someone to run the camera Wednesday morning, but alas all y'all will probably be at work. As for the wild animals, I know of a gator burrow with baby alligators, maybe I can get some video of me and their mama.

I'll try and get the demo up on YouTube at some point. A friend suggested I start making survival/adventure videos for YouTube but that would eat up a lot of time. Still, the thought intriuges me...

Anyway, thanks again for all your support! Let's see how far I can ride this wave, eh?

Adventure! Excitement! Very Close Deadline!
