An update and some important stuff...

Hey, long time no see.  I know, I know, I promised some movies.  Well, we're going to get a jump on those real soon, just gotta give our VFX man some 'persuasion' after a little vacation.

But seriously though, a lot has been happening.  The main thing is summer.  Places to go, people to meet!  Secondly, our family has been moved to a little dam in The Middle Of Nowhere.  Dad works for Idaho Power, dontcha know.  So, we're getting headquarters all settled in, and I hope to get some pictures up, just as soon as I get my desk from storage at my grandma's house.

So my brother was away at a camp this whole entire week.  No VFX guy, no VFX movies.  Basically all I've been doing is sitting around on my tush.  Believe me, I'm not proud of it.  With nothing going on, I've been thinking about this whole project and what it means to me.  I just have doubts in my mind about success and popularity and stuff.  One thing I've been wanted us to be is a 'clean' movie studio.  You know, awesome movies, but clean.  But even with that noble quality, I still didn't know what I wanted Firestorm itself to be. 

Then, one day, I was browsing around Glenn Beck's site, checking out the latest developments in his awesome plan to Restore Love in America.  I'm not preaching for this guy or anything, I just think he's a really neat man who is sincerely trying to help us save our broken country.
So, watching these three video highlights from his show, he introduced part four of his 4-step plan to change ourselves in order to change the world.  This plan includes:

1.  Commit.  Before you can stand up for what you believe in, you have to know what you believe in.  Commit and be responsible for your actions.

2.  Activate.  Get others and yourself involved in the cause.

3.  Live it.  Be the person God wants you to be.  Live your principles and stand for what is right.

Mr. Beck then commences his introduction to the 4th step: Create.  He tells of the many inventions that made this country great, and how our modern technology came about because someone thought, there's a better way to do this.

He points out that as our style of living has progressed, our morals have digressed.

He explains it much more eloquently in his monologue.  Please take the time to watch and listen!  He makes some very good points that are not so much political as they are truthful! You won't regret the time.

As I was watching these videos, it hit me.  This is what I can do.  This is what I can use this studio, or what-have-you, for.  America needs something clean to boost its spirits.  If I'm going to be a creator, I'm not going to create junk. I'm going to use my talents to make some good.

And now, here we go.
