So we all know it takes a whole lot of work to put together something as big as a full length film. And usually there are crews that help and get paid to do just that. Crews of probably hundreds, by the time you count the studio, directors, producers, and actors. So think about this. One guy. One guy who did the work of so many. He found the actors, selected the music, found the producers, researched the story, and so many more steps that it takes to put together a film. So many, that if I tried to list them all, it would take up this whole post. That guys name is Rob Reep.
He is a one man wrecking crew who took on all of those jobs and put out the film, “Captian”, which premiered this past Saturday. It is a big deal and our little town was buzzing with excitement and anticipation. We all couldn’t wait to view the finished product. Rob brought the idea up to his mom around three years ago and they got the ball rolling. And I just want to give a huge shout out to everyone that worked on the film. So many volunteered their time and talents to help Rob realize a dream. For those of you that didn’t get to attend the premiere, you can buy a copy of the DVD for $20.00 from Rob.
Rob you did a fantastic job! We all can’t wait to see what you come up with next! Congratulations!
Above: All of the actors that were in the film.
There was a red carpet and interviews going on while people were arriving.
Rob has put out a few other documentary films that you can find on Amazon.com. Go check them out! Til next time.

Every year on my daughter’s birthday, we have our own little photo shoot. I just shoot until she tells me she’s done. It usually last anywhere between 10-40 minutes. This year I was about a month late. I don’t know why, but it just happened that way. We were getting ready for a family member’s birthday party and she was ready to go, but we had some time left before we had to go. I grabbed my camera and asked her if she wanted me to take a few photos of her. Her reply was exactly what I thought it would be. “YES!” She did fantastic! But then again, I’m never disappointed with any of my kids photos. I just can’t believe how fast time is flying. She has grown so much and is turning into a beautiful young lady. I can’t wait to see where life takes my little girl.
Til next time.

This year at the Pink Tomato Festival, the first annual steak cook off. Let me just say, it smelled beyond good when I walked down that street. If I could’ve stayed there the whole day, I would’ve. But there were just to many events to cover. I did, however get to taste a sample of some ribs that were cooked that day and they melted in my mouth. I’m not sure how many contestants there were, but tents lined Main Street in Warren. This was the first time I had ever seen Main Street closed down.
But just around the corner was the main stage, where Lonestar played. And it was a great concert too! They sang songs that everyone knew and a few new ones also. Along the way, they threw in a few including Margaritaville. The whole crowd was singing along and some even had their phones out, waving them back and forth in the air like lighters. One of my favorite sights, though, was a man who had a baby in his arms. He was rocking the baby back and forth while the baby slept. So precious!
I was honored to get to capture so much and I hope that I’m asked back next year to do the same. Until next year, Pink Tomato Festival.
