FINALLY! CALI RUSH the Movie is DONE! DVD's, Shirts, Stickers, Posters are all made. All there is to do now is get it out there to the people. I want to give a huge thanks and express my deep appreciation for each and everyone of you who believed in this project enough to put down some of your hard earned cash. This movie was made possible by the support of such a great and connected community of outdoor lovers.
It's been a long but amazing journey for me. When i came up with the concept for this movie i knew it would be a feat to pull off but i never knew how long and deep the process would be. Many many strokes make up the Masterpiece. And as a Film maker for the past 10 years i can firmly say this is my Masterpiece. It's been a journey of personal growth and inspiration for me as well as those around me. What an amazing creative process. I've had the opportunity to work with so many talented people in all aspects of the making of this movie. From the Athletes to the Cinematographers and Photographers, Artist and Post Production technicians. It's been an unforgettable experience. I'm glad i was granted the gift and the vision to help facilitate this expression of art. Because ultimately all i did was let the process happen and flow through me. The real star of the show is Mother Nature. Everything revolves around Natural Process and I'm fortunate to live in one of the most amazing natural landscapes on earth. I can only hope this movie helps inspire people in just a small way as much as I have been constantly and profoundly inspired by our Natural World.
I didn't get to do everything i wanted to do with this movie but pretty darn close. I'm extremely happy with the finished product. It's been no easy task. There was many times along this journey when i questioned why i was working so hard for this project and spending so much time, money and energy on what is essentially a piece of art. And i apologize to those around me who i neglected at times. Many times i wanted to just give up or settle for something less than what i knew it had the potential to be. But time after time i persevered and pushed on. Pushing fear and doubt to the side. Almost tortured by the vision until it was complete.
And now the fun part begins. We get to share this work with the world. The Premier screening of the movie is going to be here in South Lake Tahoe this Saturday the 22ed at the American Legion Hall. Please come and view the movie for the first time if your in the area. Other showings will be announced as they manifest. If you have any request for a showing in your area please let me know. DVD's will be available online and we are working on a pay per view or digital download option as well. If you like the movie please feel free to share with your friends.
I'll be contacting each of you shortly to acquire your address to send your rewards for backing this project. Thanks again for your support and your patience.
Love and Gratitude,
Mike E. Wier
