About this project

I really believe that one of the roots of the problems our country is facing today is a lack of understanding as to what is in our Constitution.  If we truly understood what our Constitution says, the principles of liberty found therein, and the solutions to modern day issues it provides, our appreciation for and willingness to stand up in support of this great document would provide us with a much more free and prosperous America.  That's why for the last year and a half I’ve traveled the State of Wyoming teaching what I've learned in my studies of the Constitution to dozens of groups and hundreds of people throughout the state by way of live powerpoint presentations.  I’ve been blessed to have had great supporters throughout Wyoming who have encouraged me to get my presentations recorded and put on to DVDs. Well, I’m now at the point of doing so and I’m excited about the opportunity to produce a series of professional-quality DVDs.

If you want to learn more about the purpose of the seminar series or look at the content of the powerpoint slides I've put together for each presentation, or if you’d like to sample a live video of a group presentation, etc, you can go to www.intheconstitution.org – but please take into account that the site isn't fully functional at the moment. “The Seminars” tab on the menu at the left will take you to a short description of each presentation with links to each presentation’s outline, powerpoint slides, and video - although the only video available is of the 8th presentation in the series entitled, “Gun Control in the Constitution”, which was filmed live at one of my group presentations (also available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMPN47d-iCk.) This video will hopefully give you a general idea of the content and delivery style - though not the professional quality - of the other presentations in the series.

The total cost to professionally produce each presentation in the series will be somewhere in the neighborhood of $1500. My goal is to professionally produce all 10 presentations in the series but that will be determined by how much support I can get. The more that is donated, the more presentations in the series I can produce. I will start by producing “Power in the Constitution”, the first presentation in the series, and then we will go from there. Any money donated above and beyond the $1500 will go toward producing the other presentations in the series.

Thank you for your interest and support.  Hopefully, by working together we can get into the heart of every American a deep appreciation for the principles of freedom that are found “In the Constitution.”

Risks and challenges

I have already contracted with a videographer - contingent on funding - and we have met and finalized on budget, location, and strategy to make this DVD as professional and informative as possible. As I see it, the only real challenge in this project would be getting "Power in the Constitution" produced by July 1st. But, though I've never produced DVDs before, my videographer has and knows the tricks of the trade. Of course, if enough is raised to produce the other presentations in the series I am guessing it will take a couple of months to produce each additional presentation. Once the project is funded it's just a matter of filming, editing, and producing the DVDs and getting them out to as many people as possible to help them learn and love what is "In the Constitution".
