The Crew

Today we arrived in Grand Island, Nebraska. It’s pretty hot here, but we’re surviving, and glad to be ready to begin production on the Wheat Harvest Movie. Some of you may have wondered who are these people behind this project.

USCHIFirst of all, we couldn’t be making this film without the endorsement and full support of our Platinum level sponsor, the US Custom Harvesters!  We’re so excited that they have made this movie project possible!  We hope that with their commitment to the project that other organizations and companies will decide to commit to supporting this important work too.

 

Second, I couldn’t produce a project like this without the support and involvement from the people I love most, my family! They are committed to helping out with the first part of this documentary, and are working as part of my crew this summer.

Third, but not least are the custom harvesters themselves! I’ve had many crews contact me about being involved in telling this story, and I’ve had a number of them make financial commitments as well. Thanks so much!!

Making Plans

The time for our departure is quickly arriving. Our crew – made up of my family – is leaving for Gregory, SD on Sunday, July 17. We hope to make it to Gregory by Monday evening. We’ll be connecting with the Misener family Harvesting crew and telling a part of the harvesting story from their point of view.
We’ll be in Gregory for a couple of days, then heading north to Onida, SD for a few days as well. From what I understand there are several crews in that location, and we hope to film some real beauty shots of wheat there, as well as interview some really cool people. I hear there’s a crew in that area that has the ONLY ALL Ethanol Powered Combine in the US. That should be interesting.
Once we wrap up in Onida, we’ll head to Wall, SD where we’ll connect with Jim Deibert’s crew. He runs John Deere combines and has four brand new ones this year.
From Wall, SD we’ll head to either Limon, CO or Jordan, MT depending on where the Zeorian crew will be.
Keep checking back here, we’ll keep you posted daily about our progress, and might even show you some really cool footage from the project.
