Weekend

Today we were able to meet up with one of the directors of a dance group called Seventh Sense. They liked our style of filming and wanted us to try out filming their performance. We'll be going to one of the dress rehearsals on Thursday to get an idea of the performance and try filming a little bit of it.

We also went to Costco today and picked up some of the essentials. Oreos, chips, cheesecake, soda, and peanut butter.

Preschool

I've been substituting this past week at a different school for their preschool. I'm at the preschool from 9am-4pm then have to run to my other school to teach at night so my days have been pretty long this week. The little kids can get pretty crazy but it has been pretty fun for the most part.

Last Week

After our video, Todd got a lot of kids wanting to learn what he does, so last week we had a holiday so a group got together to train with him.





It takes talent to drive that

Reporter Trying Out Freerunning

One of the reporters that interviewed us last week liked the way we filmed our video so she wanted me to film her and edit it to make it look like she knows what she is doing. This is her first time ever trying something like this.

Now That Our Parents Know....

During the month of September Todd and I were working on a new video. On October 1st, Todd and I uploaded a video of Todd doing some freerunning. We posted it on YouTube just to show our friends and family, and thought it would only get maybe a few hundred views. The next day, our video views got into the thousands. The second day our video reached 8000 views. Into the third day our video was climbing by the ten thousands. Our video went over 100,000 views by the fourth day. By this time, numerous news reporters were emailing and calling people all over Taiwan like crazy trying to find Todd so they could do an interview. Both Todd and I were able to get interviewed by a TV station and then Todd also got another interview with a different TV station (video below). A few articles were even written about him online. We started getting emails from different people offering us to do future work with them.  PUMA also emailed Todd to meet with them on Friday. When Todd went to meet up with them, the reps told him that they love what he does and want to do a future ad campaign with him. They pretty much told Todd that he was sponsored and gave him a bunch of free clothing. Today, we were able to have a meeting with a lady that hires out the people to film events and she offered us the opportunity to be able to go around Taiwan and film different performing artists. She liked the way we put the video together and feels that our style of video will be a nice change from the way other film crews film and edit. This was our first video uploaded to our new channel and it has already opened numerous doors to future job opportunities. This week has been unreal for us.

New Friends

Today, we went out to dinner at a hot pot restaurant. The food was great. After dinner, Todd and I went to meet up with some new friends. They are pretty rad. I've had a cold this past week and tonight I started losing my voice. Hopefully it will get a little better because I need to teach the next 3 days.

Danshui

Had the day off yesterday so I went up to Danshui, which is about an hour away from our apartment, to get some shots of the sunset.
