Road Node 101::Reflections


Watch the video
While this video is a reflection upon Road Node 101 taken the last day officially on the tour, that doesn't mean there aren't a bunch of vids in process. Just wanted to post this wrap-up piece for its immediacy.
 
What a trip it was!
 
The network is strong. Stronger than imagined. And replete with mutual support.
 
The urgency we feel to get the word out sooner is palpable and real.
 
The need to teach folks to create media, important. When you create it, you begin to understand its complex power. Perhaps that's why I stopped consuming popular media for ten years just as I began to work in the film industry.
 
In the end, I remain hugely optimistic about human nature and filled with hope for the future, for WE ARE THE MEDIA, and media is powerful when used as a tool.
 
"Work hard; use the proper tools."

  4. Only wish I could take a nap! This movie - as most do - is kicking our asses. Thing is, we're tough, and kick right back.

    Thanks to everyone for making it one of the most rewarding and challenging performances of my career to date.

    More to come!
