    Neat. I'm impressed by the cooperation of various people and shops supporting your shoot. Was that you behind that camera in the outtake?

    Cool. I used to do Toastmasters (and need to find a new club), so I have a feel for what it takes to write a 5-ish minute short story. But it's different type of effort film it, and coordinate the team, etc.

    We were literally herding cats (and goats!) this time! :) but yes lots of give and take in the process. The inclination to do everything your way and win every debate is a humbling learning process. I feel like a better team member, heck a better person, for doing it each year.

    I finally had a chance to watch your film, Sam. It turned out very well -- nice job! Like Dave, I was impressed with the cooperation you got from some of the local business people. It must have been a lot of fun to make.

    Last time we were in Yellowstone (about 4 years ago), I saw a couple of people walking around with iPads and using them as point & shoot cameras. It just looked odd and cumbersome to me. I have not noticed it often since then -- maybe once in Alaska last summer.

    It's pretty popular for sure. Not for me but if it makes people happy I'm all for it.
