"New Dad State of Mind"

After a few months of talking about it we spent the last few weeks shooting this music video parody. Many other parodies of Jay Z's "Empire State of Mind" have centered around regions of the country and of course Star Wars. We took the experience of being a new dad and added a beat.

The tech details:
2 days of shooting. Shot on a Canon 7D, Edited on Final Cut Pro and it was my first experience with LED lights, which were nice and cool to work around.

Meeting of Mito-Moms, & Dads & Cousins etc

Mito-Kids is looking for people to get involved! We invite you to join us in our effort to bring attention to the subject of Mitochondrial disease through the production of the feature film "Mito-Kids." www.Mito-Kids.com

This week is the first official week that Connie Bottinelli as Executive Producer, and Darren Dodge as Associate Producer. They will be joining the award winning team of Karlina Lyons, and Wanda & Marc Dole and all the great people that have helped get us this far.

We are looking for people with marketing experience and for people to research into everything from potential corporate sponsors to current medical information on Mitochondrial disease.

We are also looking for people without marketing experience but have the drive to help us get this project in the public eye.

Mito-Kids works with the local non-profit Annie's Angels to raise funds that will help alleviate the costs of production. We are in the process of setting up an LLC for potential investors as we develop this groundbreaking film.

We would like to have a kick off meeting this weekend on either Saturday afternoon at the Hatchling Ballroom at 3 Congress St in Portsmouth, NH. Please let us know if you are interested and if you are available to attend. if you are interested but cannot attend please email us your skype or other IM name and we will try and do a live stream of the meeting.
