I hadn’t intended to make a trailer while I was in the desert, but I had a small action camera with me that wasn’t ideal for this sort of thing, but I figured I’d see what I could do with what I had available.
CHUPACABRA Movie Trailer
Membrane update Pop-Pop-Pop and Boom!
Basically packed. A few last minute loose strings to wrap up… but essentially ready to wander Southward into Mexico.
Will not return until a compete draft is finished of my Chupacabra screenplay. Doesn’t matter if it sucks… just has to be finished. Will also write an experimental travel, fiction, real, photographically illustrated thingy and experiment with my new GoPro Hero3 Black for some action video and timelaps of some kickass waterfalls in the Huasteca region. Hope to read two new books 1. The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles 2. Herzog on Herzog and make a few new images.
Is this all too much for about a 30 day trip?
The area I’m going to is reported to be THE most dangerous area in Mexico right now with some BS war between the De Gulfo and Los Zetas cartels.
Am I scared? Yes.
Am I still going. Hell Yes.
Wish me suerte. :) – Read on Path.
Just wrapping up a project that’s been ongoing for about 6 months & collected some licensing funds from a couple firms.
Other than absolutely finishing up the last few 1st draft pages of the screenplay I started in Mexico… and, wrapping up the iBook of my Colombian adventure I’m almost finished compiling to publish in the iBookstore… I see a very nice window beginning to open for a brand new adventure.
Where to go? Taiwan? Philippines? Toying with flying into India around Mumbai, wandering in the South, then hop over to Sri Lanka for a couple weeks, then figure out how to get up to Nepal for another couple of weeks, then meandering back into India for the return flight.
Or, just taking off out my front door on foot & a minimalist pack. There would be no plan or rules. A lot of walking, hitching, buses, etc. No particular direction either. Just wandering free.
I’ve done something similar to this on a motorcycle, but maintaining the bike & dodging weather, etc. can be really distracting. Something about just taking off with no more than I could carry for 15-25 miles on foot & taking rides when available without having to worry about chain maintenance, tire pressure, highway fatigue, etc. sounds appealing to me. Kinda like Forest Gump without all the running. ;) – Read on Path.
Gotta clear the mind. Going on a nature hike for awhile… – at Walnut Creek Metropolitan Park – See on Path.

Couldn’t publish The Fine Colombian calendar without it’s colorful sister… just added The Deep End: Colombia 2013 Calendar!
What the what? The Fine Colombian as a calendar?! Must be the holidays! :)
Like your calendars printed? Just created a 2013 calendar based on my LithoFusion Collection! :)

Messing around with my new phone. Thinking I ought to put this dang thing down & get myself a glass of vino instead. :)

Been down to Mexico again, but this time I was working on a new screenplay based on a true story that happened to me about 14 years ago.
Got attacked and punched in the face on the first night, and there was some shooting at the border and some killings just prior to my arriving in the San Luis Potosi area… but overall it was an extremely productive trip.
I hitched a ride in the desert and while sitting with my ass flat in a pickup truck bed, the driver hit a speed bump at high speed which bruised my tailbone… so I still can’t sit for long and need to complete the last 15-20 pages… but I’m almost finished and got great contacts, location images, and location video clips.
I also chronicled the process, personal notes and observations of the trip here: http://storify.com/skiphunt/chupacabra-1
