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

Anthony Bourdain

Wow. Just wow. My heroes for my style of interview were David Frost and Peter Gzowski. When I was busy doing my show and working in media in Istanbul, Anthony was becoming a foodie’s icon. I didn’t see his show until I was pretty much done TV there. I immediately liked his style, and to be honest, was just a bit envious.

Reading the news this morning… he’s gone. Just yesterday I had a conversation on the brevity of life.

Farewell Mr. Bourdain… way too soon to leave us.

Ballet is Popular

I was going through my website stats and found the Ballet Victoria episode post has had 926 visits since it was uploaded! That is nearly double any previous show posting on the site.

Two Line Body Series I Artwork

Two Line Body – Series I

This is the first commercial offering of my artwork to the public. I’m quite excited as I always love to create things. Writing, videos, music, and art. I have been rather distant from the artwork side of things but taking time off from  social media this week has inspired me. I hope it inspires you too! I think I captured some of the human body with simple, yet distinguishable, two line drawings. It was a challenge however, I hope they are fun and interesting.

Remember, these may become a collector’s item someday! Who knows? So plan your art portfolio wisely here and now!
