Movie making update

I know your’e all probably wondering why, as a blog of a movie making “company”, we haven’t (or rather, I haven’t) mentioned movies or movie making for almost a month- it’s been in the upper 90′s and lower 100′s around here and between the heat, birthdays,teen camp(for me),laziness (on my part) and a mixture of time consuming random projects that have needed our attention, we haven’t really done anything towards finishing “John the Detective 2″ (or any other movie, for that matter). We haven’t given up, we’ve just taken a short (actually long) break, so stick with us and expect more movies to be written,produced and filmed by the wonderful crew at SixSibs Media Group!
Thanks for reading,

Happy 4th!

I hope you all have had a good first couple hours of this glorious Independence Day! We have had a rather exciting few hours, since we are filling up a pool that our Mom and Dad got us several days ago, and the 4 middle sibs have already tried it out! I think that that is rather crazy considering that it’s only 71 degrees out and the water that we’re filling the pool with is about 15 or 20 degrees colder than that! Today I also read  the last 120 pages of “Be the Change” a book that I heard about from Alex and Brett Harris of TheRebelution.com and was able to check out at our library yesterday. It was an excellent book about ending modern- day slavery (a very fitting book to read today considering that today is a day that we celebrate the freedom that we enjoy in America  and this book is about freedom for everyone- not just the people of one certain country or people group). I’ll probably write a more complete book review in a few days but I just wanted to post a little snippet about it right now. So again stay cool, be safe, have fun and read “Be the Change” if you are looking for a good edifying thing to do.

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”.
