over to him. I figured if he came up with something good, he could get a job with National Geographics or the Discovery Channel, or something like that. Since he does the shooting, editing, production, animations, writes the music, performs the music, and creates the voiceovers, I thought it would be an excellent project to get him started in the world of media.
He did a good job, especially considering that he had rookies for talent. It was an uphill project all the way. We are happy with the result. Although he's not rich or famous, he has a skill set that is marketable in the media world. I don't have any financial interest in the music or DVDs that he creates. Right now he just finished mixing an album for his band (Too Many Drummers), which he is sending off to get mastered this week by a professional.
I think I would characterize his career as being in the "sailing to windward" phase. I will be interested to see his next destination
