Rachel’s biography

“The only actress of SixSibs Media”.
by Adam and Luke
Rachel was born many,many moons ago(119 to be exact) in a city in Missouri,and for the first few years of her life she lived in a small house with a little yard, but at the tender age of 4 her family packed there bags and headed to the country where there was much more room for Rachel and her brothers to play. Rachel and her brothers went on all sorts of adventures and built all sorts of things, including several go-carts a tree fort and a little town called “Boot hill” (they later tore down some of the town to build the tree fort). About 8 months ago Rachel and her 5 brothers made a movie company called “SixSibs media”. Since then they have become world famous,made millions of dollars ( not quite) and have made more than a dozen short films. Rachel is the only girl in SixSibs Media group and she usually plays the role of the “Lady in distress”(although she has also played a detective,a stunt driver and a normal girl). She also enjoys contributing to our bloopers reels. You can see Rachel acting in lots of the movies that SixSibs has made.


Luke’s biography

“The father of SixSibs Media”.
by Rachel
Luke grew up in the city,and even as a young boy he loved romping and playing,but unfortunately the house that he first lived in only had a 1/3 of an acre lot and it did not have very much room for Him to play. But when he was six years old he moved to the house that he lives in now,which had a much bigger yard and lots of trees and woods. Back then no one would have guessed that this country boy would go on to become one of the greatest,if not the greatest president that SixSibs Media has ever had. Luke is now 12 years old and as energetic as ever (although he is aging fast). You can see him in many of the movies that SixSibs has made.

Stunt movies

YouTube was wrong! It didn’t take 19 hours- It took 36! But we were finally able to upload Stunt movie # 2 along with Stunt movie #1 :

Stunt movie #2:

Run to the lights

Luke, Rachel, John our Dad and I  ran the Run to the lights 5 K at Silver Dollar City on Friday, it was very fun (and exhausting). For all of the race times click here:

I am uploading a sequel to Stunt movie #1 and this is the the time that it is supposed to take before it is on the internet:
Argh! At that rate  it will take 19.183 hours before it is fully uploaded.

Do I really look like that?

This is what I look like:

And this is what Rachel thinks I look like:

(I disagree with Rachel strongly).

The road not taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Robert Frost

There are lots of people who take “The road more traveled” but it is the people who take the other path that have great success. think of it: all of the really “successful” people do something totally different,something that no one else has thought of before. Apple didn’t make a killing off the iPhone because it was just like everything else around, they did something different.  John Moore didn’t win the $101,000 grand prize at the SAICFF because his film was like every one else’s. So if you want to be successful (doesn’t everybody want to?) then don’t do what everyone is is doing or has done, take “The road less traveled”.


My passport to India

For the last five weeks our family has been watching a series of videos called “My passport to India”.
We have really enjoyed watching them and are going to donate some money to Mission India to help teach children about Jesus, it only takes a dollar to send a child to a bible club where they will be able to hear the gospel,many of them for the first time, and many of them for the only time, and if you donate before November 17 Sonlight curriculum will double your gift, so that means that with the matching gift it will only take 50 cents to send a child to a bible club. Think of it, 50 cents could mean the difference between eternal life or death for a child in India.
Considering the fact that there are over 1.4 billion people in India and 830 million of them are Hindus I think it will be money well spent.

Good free software

Here is some software that I thought was very good, I have used them all before and I use most of them on a regular basis (I don’t use   Windows Live Movie Maker very much because we have a better (and more expensive) video editing program at home). I hope you’ll be able to use at least one of these programs and all of them but Blender are pretty intuitive (there are lots of online Blender tutorials- for some good ones click here ).

Here they are:

Recording and editing sound and sound effects


Visual effects, logos, and computer animation.


Picture editing, and image creation.

Video editing and some visual effects.

Fall fun #2

Here are some more leaf pile stunts that we have done,The leaf pile that we are jumping into is a combination of leaf pile #1 and leaf pile #2 with some other random leaves that we raked up from around the yard.

Cloud pictures

Here are some cloud photos that I took :

The rake

This is our first movie that has a true “fight scene” in it, it’s not the best quality but for a movie that only took about thirty minutes to do from start to finish I think that it turned out very well.
Here it is:

Fall fun!

We were able to combine work and play by raking leaves!

Here is a video of us doing some stunts:

P.S. (Isaac thinks that Luke and I have some kind of  anti-gravity machine.)
