I haven’t been blogging much because 100% of my creative energy has been diverted to writing, and making The Minimalist Sailor (The movie). I have a solid first draft of the script (120 pages), and we are planning to go into production in July of this year.
As some of you know I’ve been a film-maker my entire adult life. Both of my parents were actors, and I grew up in the entertainment industry.
I left Hollywood after my distributor stole over $850,000 from my company on a film I produced and directed, which not only broke me financially, but more importantly, broke my dreams of continuing my carrier as a film maker.
When I left California I spent a year in Canada and ended up buying Namaste in New England and sailed her half-way around the world. During that time I made the two documentary style Project BlueSphere films which I now give away for free.
I’m flying to Florida in a month to get Eleanor and sail her back to Panama. Carla and I will finally be able to move into our new home and put Splendid up for sale. Splendid is looking great by the way with her new bottom and hull paint :)
I’ve also made a few changes to Project Bluesphere. Please check out your profile page. Truthfully I’m getting tired of Facebook and will build a more intuitive community here at Project BlueSphere where it will become more of an active social network of like-minded voyaging sailors. I’m planning on all users to have their own wall and personal blog page, should be fun?
So much for today guys.
Sail far and live slowly.
