been a long time

since I’ve been to Sundance. Actually… last time I was here it was actually at Robert Redford’s ski resort.

Quaint. Small. Independant.

It’s pretty big now. No parking. Fans. Crowds. Swag bags.

Not so independent any more.

Interviews at Sundance for Smothered. All about bringing filmmakers to Louisiana.

But still a lot of fun. Great to feel the energy of lots of people with the same passion. Making movies.

I saw a company that has re-designed the computer specifically for  editing and rendering purposes. Small. Lightweight. Fast. Great stuff.

My plan is to gather different people from all aspects of filmmaking and get them to come to the new studio ion Holden to set up shop and make their [products and services available to independent filmmakers in Louisiana.

Can’t wait to get different departments there up and running.

If you have the chance to hang wit people who are interested in what you are interested in (Beachbody Challenge for example) take it. There’s a synergy that happens in that situation that doesn’t hap[pen elsewhere.

Firefighters, lawyers, bowlers, botanists… whatever your passion… do what you can to spend some time with like minded people. It will fuel your passion.

Good times!

  1. We are going to check out Sundance today. I’ve never been and am curious about it. Lived in SLC for 2 1/2 years and it’s only about a 30 minute drive. Looking forward to the fun.

  2. Lol ,some times I wonder if there is a person with a like mind as I some one that has the same Passions..Or If I’m one of a Kind…

    Glad UR You Are enjoying Life with People with a Passion for what U do..Be Safe in Your Travels,Oh Tell UR Daughter Happy Birthday..

    Always & forever

  3. Regarding Beachbody T25 and Ultimate Reset, I’ve been working on both during the last few weeks. Wow! I’ve been getting stronger and gaining energy. I lost several pounds, but that wasn’t my goal. I wanted to tighten, display more definition, obtain more strength, and become more flexible. I can see that happening. I had a challenge for our sheriff’s office unit, and I was in the top 10 out of about 700 contestants. Coach John sends me emails daily for support, and it’s such a great way to motivate me. Thanks for everything.

  4. Great to see things are starting to come together for you. It is
    always good to spend time with people of like mind. So have fun,fun,fun…!!!

  5. Well I’m glad John damucho’re very good and welfare’re finding much in what you do and where you are and if it is true the last thing you say must find like people who like what one have much reason

      1. hmmm, your best bet to create another menu/page and name it Beachbody etc. You may add it after Home, About pages then the third one is your new page/menu called Beachbody or whatever name then people can post something on your page

  6. I think it is awesome how your dreams give other people their dreams! PAYING IT FORWARD! Louisiana is very lucky that you chose their state. I know the best is yet to be! 🙂

  7. John, congrats on your plans reengineering your dreams into a reality that many artists will be able to enjoy and to work in an uplifting atmosphere. I wish Smothered were going to be presented at Sundance, but you will find the correct path for your opus at the right time. Many good vibrations coming your way.
