Not that long ago and certainly not that far, far away, I promised I’d share things as they became real. Today is my first chance to keep that promise so I’m jumping on it like I’ve got extra quarters for the pony outside K-Mart.


I’d already told you Azoth Khem and I were preparing to work with Fredits, the editing and promotional company owned by – internationally acclaimed editor – Freddy Noriega. We did that and the preliminary results are in. I’ll share them in a moment, I just want you to understand what you’re about to see.

On top of his fascinating background, Freddy is a master of creating tone, or sizzle, reels. These are industry oriented shorts that use footage from other sources to create a single feel, or tone, so that investors and others will grasp what we’re trying to create. And, let’s be honest, The Brittle Riders is not easy to match with anything out there. I began to understand how hard it would be when the third company that does these things turned me down. Oh, sure, they wished me luck too, but they still turned me down.

Freddy not only accepted, he nailed it. This is a first draft, so there will be some minor changes, but I’m completely comfortable sharing what we have now.

The Brittle Riders Tone Reel

The bigger the screen, and the better the sound system, the happier you will be.

As you can tell we’re really upping our game. The idea is, over the next month or so, to have a complete package to present to possible investors or networks. We will have a complete script, pitch deck, and this reel, all focused on creating a pilot. We also have something called a “script bible.” Unlike it’s Judeo Christian namesake, it’s a simple tome. It breaks out all the episodes in the first season of The Brittle Riders should it ever get made. At this point it’s more of a “suggestion” than a “bible” since the pilot hasn’t been made. Nevertheless, I’m from Chicago so I follow the advice of the legendary Daniel Burnham; “Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men’s blood and probably will not themselves be realized. Make big plans, aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will never die, but long after we are gone will be a living thing, asserting itself with ever growing insistency.”

I think that’s enough excitement for one day. Thanks for hanging in there with me and I’ll see you soon.
