First Scene - Rough Cut

1 like

Greetings~

I've just returned from a 3 day trip visiting Ernie and Erica in the Okanogan Highlands, or as Erica calls it, "the Tijuana of inland southwest Canada." It is quite beautiful. I've managed to shoot another 2 1/2 hours of B-roll for the DVD and record some voiceovers. Here is a rough cut of the first scene (minus sound mix, music, color correction). At this point it looks like we will have 48 scenes and a total run time of about 2 hours. 

Well, back to work for me. Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,

Calen

      Hi Chris~
      Yes! We have been working on this for a little over 4 years. I'm very excited about it too. It has been a labor of love and it's coming together beautifully!
      It looks to me like the dragon heater is a rocket stove without a thermal mass. I found a pic on their website http://www.dragonheaters.com/dragon-heaters/ You will get lots of heat off the barrel but the rest of the heat will go out the chimney rather than being stored in the thermal mass.

      Thanks Calen for the update. Looks like you guys have really put your heart & soul into making this video. Can't wait to watch it when I get it. Just out of interest, someone sent me this email about a claim for a "Dragon Heater" (http://practicalaquaponics.com/blog/…) that is supposedly much more efficient that a rocket stove and was wondering what you view was on the claim.

      Cheers, Chris
