It's a wrap!

Finished up doing some filming with the Chickasaw Multimedia Group for a documentary about the contact between Hernando De Soto and the Chickasaw People. The scenes were filmed in the forests and on the beach at the De Soto National Memorial in Bradenton,Florida. 

There were over 20 people in conquistador and pre-Colombian Native dress plus a production team of at least 15 camera,audio,grips,makeup,prop masters,and production assistants on the National Park grounds filming in the Florida heat and rain.Met some talented technicians,artists,and actors over the 3 day shoot.

 It was something else to be running around in the woods wearing little more than a breech cloth,and a pelt pounding on conquistadors in full body armor with my ancient battle club! 
 Plans are to do an outdoor viewing at the park when the film is released (hopefully in November).The event will be hosted by the Chickasaw Nation and the De Soto National Memorial and will be open to the public.
