You have to share good stuff. So, this is part 1 of the Kelly Slater Headspace interview. You have to love a well done production. I have always been a big fan of the surfing communities approach to expressing the culture that is surfing.

Production Crew Safety Comes First!

The first question that comes to mind in relation to the tragic death of Sarah Jones, an Atlanta based second assistant camera operator, who was killed while on the set of 'Midnight Rider' is why. Why was she there? As a producer of several projects that had the potential for injury, one of my main concerns is always the safety of the folks I have working. This has to be paramount for any production.

If you don't know the back story about Sarah Jones' death. She was struck by a train while filming on a train trestle over the Altamaha River near Savannah, Georgia. Several other people were seriously injured in the accident, as well.

Not to be flippant or harsh, but why would any producer put a crew on an active train trestle??? This is insane! Since I was a small child, I knew that you never even attempt to cross a bridge that trains are active on. You may not have time to get off the bridge in the likelihood that a train comes. So, the idea of putting a production set together on a train trestle is beyond reckless. With the news that CSX had denied permission for the crew to be on the tracks, which is obvious from a safety perspective, the decision to put the crew in harms way is even more derelict. Such a senseless loss.

Think people! Think before you make decisions that effect the people you work with.

Bark Garnsey Joins "In the Spread" to Talk BIG Marlin

In the course of producing In the Spread instructional videos, we always want to provide you with the very best the sport fishing world has to offer. In that vein, there is nobody more qualified or experienced to discuss big marlin fishing that Captain Bark Garnsey. By big marlin, I am talking about the biggest. There is no bigger sport fishing legend walking the earth. Whether you want to know more about targeting marlin on light tackle using bait and switch or on heavy tackle, Bark Garnsey is the king of kings.

Are we enthusiastic about the opportunity to film with Barkie? Yes, we are fired up! Captain Garnsey has caught so many big fish and several grander marlin as an angler and been the captain when many many more were caught. The most impressive aspect of what he brings to the table is that so much of his experience came while running the boat for another legend, Stewart Campbell, when they were targeting the very biggest marlin on super light tackle. None of their lures had hooks. They pitched baits to grander after grander after grander trying to set light tackle world records.

This is the man we will be producing a In the Spread marlin instructional film with. This is going to be very interesting! What a treat!
