Gurilla camcorder holder

This is a gurilla video I'm sharing from my producer pal Nextraker. Check it out!

As quoted from his youtube page.
"Convert a regular goose neck lamp into a Flexible Cam Holder... Its very simple to make one of these, just watch the video to get an idea of how it works. No more shaking cam, No more darkness... Try it!"

Growing Up Guide Pup - Week 3 - Potty Training

Our adventures with our new guide dog pup Ricki continue. After a couple of weeks of simple filming and working out the vlog format, we decided to start getting more serious. This week we talked about how to potty train a guide dog puppy, and how to train them to chew on approved toys. Filming was crazy as usual, and we got some candid moments in there. If you like the web show, please rate, favorite, and comment on youtube. Feel free to subscribe on there too. We plan on doing this vlog until Ricki either graduates as a guide dog, or she is career changed.

Tiagra- Viagra spoof with Tiger Woods

I made a spoof on Viagra for fun. It was a cool challenge cause i recycled footage from a Snickers commercial contest. I have never done this before and learned that just because you don't win a contest doesn't mean that your footage is useless.

Check out TIAGRA!

Growing Up Guide Pup- Week 2 - Adjustments

We survived another week with our new guide dog puppy Ricki. She is starting to learn how to sleep throughout the night and adjusting well to living with us. Our other dog Eli on the other hand had a bit of a struggle this week. He acted out and ate half of a cake Amie was making for valentines day. 24 hours later he was at the ER clinic.....crazy Eli.

Here is week 2 of our web show. Enjoy!

Growing Up Guide Pup - Week 1 - Premiere Episode

My wife Amie and I have been raising Guide Dogs for the Blind for eight years. We just picked up our tenth dog and the cycle starts all over again. Our new dog is a Golden Retriever and Labrador cross named Ricki. She is 8 weeks old and very cute.

If you have watched any of my videos, the one thing you might find is that they are all over the place. No genre is safe with me, but the problem with that is my audience is very undefined.

In a effort to hit two birds with one stone we have decided to make a Web Show about our Guide Dog Puppy. A show where I can practice working a video series format, and a show where Amie can share what guide dog puppy raising is all about.

Please check out our new series below. If you like it, please show it some love by telling your friends and family all about it. We will be putting a new episode up once a week for the next 16 months so it should be interesting.

Flying Furballs

I was pondering what type of video to make last week, and realized that I have never made a video showing all of our cats. Our beloved Coal passed away last year. This was a reminder of how important it is to get some great footage of the furballs. With that in mind, Amie and I made a video showing them play. The challenge is taking a ordinary home video and figuring out a way to make it entertaining. Not only for Amie and I, but also for cat lovers around the globe. I hope i accomplished that goal. Chappy
