Before he was Billy

Archives are great. Being a pilot myself, I have found something of interest to aviators and aviation buffs.

Here is a scan of Billy Bishop’s attestation document for the Canadian Expeditionary Forces in WWI… Before he was to be known as the flying ace “Billy”…

 

New Community Website

There is a great place I have found to connect. It is so new that there are only a few people on it so far. It’s like Facebook meets Twitter meets WordPress meets Google Docs!

It is designed for Vancouver Island however I’m sure it is okay for others to join in. It is for adults only and you must create an account to get in. Data is not sold and it is self moderating. Be kind and don’t be a troll!

Return of the Ghost documentary grant

Busy busy busy! Me. Documentary Grant! Who would have thought I’d look for funding?

My latest instalment of life is in need of your help. Nothing major, I just need you to vote for my new documentary. The voting site will be available on Monday July 30th. Starting at noon, you can visit the site to cast your vote and if I get a good turnout, Telus (Storyhive) will award my project with a $50,000 grant!

Fifty thousand dollars sounds like a lot but to produce a real documentary with a real crew and real promotion, it’s pretty much just a great start. Telus will also assist my production with mentoring and other support.

I will share more of the documentary’s content soon. All the details are on the voting web site. Which will be available Monday, July 30, 2018 at 12 noon PDT. I will share that URL when it is time. I really do not want to have a lot of false starts as you will just find nothing at the link.

I have produced over 80 episodes of TV content, and have worked on countless numbers of documentary, training, and film scripts in the past 15 years. I can do this. You’ll be proud of this one. But the only way I can receive the documentary grant is via the voting process outlined by Telusfund. No other way. Please… take a few minutes out next week to help me out. It not only helps me, it helps the many other new motion picture people out there. This project will help over 20 other people get their names in the credits via this documentary grant!   Contact me if you need more info or want the ‘hidden’ link in advance to put in your reminders list.

More later… Martin
