Big Smiles & A Few Miles

Started a brisk 1.5 hour hike at Jumping Off Rock near Ophir in the Uwharrie National Forest this morning. The weather was a perfect 64 degrees. The particular trail we chose (By the way I was walking with AT section hiker, Jeff Bowers, no relation) was very mild and not much of a challenge. We walked and talked our way over a short peak. After that the trail was just like road walking, only in the woods, with overflowing creeks. ​​Just wearing a small day pack with a gallon of water and a few snacks, my burden was very lite. At the first creek crossing I carried my shoes and socks and waded through. No two ways about it, that water was cold. We ended up scampering across water 4 times. One of them got half my right foot soaked. With such a short hike it wasn’t a problem. Now there are some very challenging trails from that same spot, but for my first day back at hiker training 1.5 hours was just fine. Crossing the big creek coming back, the same one I waded the first time and considering one foot was already wet, I got bold and ninja hopped across residual boulders in the stream!

Respawner

The Respawner Pilot Respawner is really my first attempt at world building. The character was conceived along with her own universe in which her supporting characters would be fleshed out as they enthralled us with weekly or monthly adventures. Unfortunately, petty jealousy and animosity kept my film making partners from fully embracing the series and some poor casting on the part of the director, namely myself, doomed the original production from that start along with my own inexperience at planning and executing such a large endeavor. For those that care to dig a little deeper, in these pages you will find the bones of a dream project that fell by the wayside. However, a ton ton of exploratory content was created and I think that it’s worth sharing here. We took a ton of images while making the season 1 trailer and pilot episode. Check those out here. Much of the content was published via the Mutantville.com website and Youtube channel, but some of it, very few eyes have ever beheld. For instance, did you know that there was an official Respawner fan page and a website? I’m slowly but surely moving all my video content from the MVP Channel over to my Vimeo channel where there’s less hassle with ads and generally more control over video quality. As I move a file over, I’ll add the new version on this page if it’s Respawner related. Respawner from Brent Bowers on Vimeo.
