'Moganko Episodes' Update & Green Screen Teaser

Since I don't have my "Angie Story" ready yet (sorry Sis), I've decided to post a "Moganko Update" a little earlier than I planned...

I've been getting my "ducks in a row", so to speak, regarding improvements in my Moganko projects. I have a handful of episodes left before I put my overly ambitious plan in to effect! What is that plan, you ask?

THAT IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS YET, YOU BUNCH OF SNOOPY MCSNOOPERTONS!

Joshland Note: Snoopy McSnoopertons? Man, I am a nerd. It's really so sad, but true.

All I can tell you is that the plan has to do with promoting CF Awareness on a large scale and that will only happen if I have your full support! Trust me...I dream big. :-)

FYI - I know these things aren't cinematic masterpieces, but keep a few things in mind:

1. I'm doing 95% of these episodes on my own. I do all the writing, filming (occasionally I'll have help from my awesome friends and family, which I appreciate. You know who you are. :-), lighting, editing, and post-production myself. There is a reason professional movies take months and sometimes years to make. It takes FOREVER to do all this stuff! I appreciate the effort of the behind-the-camera crew so much more now as a very novice amateur "filmmaker".

2. I'm waiting on other participants, whose VERY GENEROUS and VOLUNTARY contributions are the things that will make Moganko and my plan a success. That means patience is key. It's also a virtue that, thanks to CF, I think I have a lot of in certain situations.

3. I am doing this on literally no budget. I cut corners when I can. I have a low grade camera. I use green sheets, a shower curtain, home rated work lights, and pvc pipe to make "movie magic". I hope the effort shines through on this cut 'n' paste production.

4. My health ALWAYS comes first, which means it gets in the way of "Moganko Time". I'm as annoyed with it as you are, but all of these projects WILL get done.

I'm sure there are people who think I am a fool and I'm wasting my time doing these things. I've got news for them: I do it because I do enjoy it and want little kids with CF to have something to smile about. If nothing ever happens with my grand scheme, it won't matter one damn bit to me because I get emails and notes all the time from adults about how my videos helped their kids feel good about taking care of themselves while laughing in the process. That makes all the effort worthwhile. :-)

Here is the teaser update video (which is actually longer and more intricate than any of the previous episodes have been if that tells you anything.) I hope you enjoy this and will share it with your friends and family. :-)
