The Awe Of Wisconsin Skies

Harley Wings

The Awe Of Wisconsin Skies.  Some of the amazing moments I’ve been able to capture while traveling around Wisconsin the past few months with the film.  I think the beauty of these shots says more about the skies above Wisconsin and good timing than it does about any skill involved.  Note that the third one down … Continue reading

BIFF’ing It Up In Beloit

Steph Klett DJAG

Our opening night showing sold out at the Beloit International Film Festival, but better than that was having Wisconsin Secretary of Tourism and humorist Stephanie Klett give the opening statements on the film for the packed out audience.  Loved it as she is in the film, but also because she is the epitome of everything … Continue reading

Cheeseheads Fantastic in Sheboygan

Weill Center DJAG04

Wow, what a turnout we had for the “Cheeseheads” screening in Sheboygan.  Well over 300 people showed up for the screening at the Weill Center in downtown, and a good number of them took part in our after party at the Mead Public Library next door.  I cannot say enough about how terrific the Weill … Continue reading

SOLD OUT in Eau Claire!!!

DJAG EC Micon 03

A good media campaign proved quite successful for our Eau Claire screening at the Downtown Micon Cinema on January 9th 2016.  Turns out they also loved the film, which is a testament to good art and cinema, and to Eau Claire’s love of both. We had a blast at the meet & greet handing out … Continue reading

Outside House On The Rock

HOTR Inn Dodgeville

I shot these quite some time ago, but just found them.  While the interior tour of House On The Rock is used in the documentary (to humorous and a bit eery effect), only a smidgen of the exterior, also an awesome place to visit, is used.  That place just keeps going and going.  Enjoy, and … Continue reading

Peculiar Fun Art In Sturgeon Bay

SB_Art_Tim_04

I met Tim at his studio in Sturgeon Bay and found out that he was also one of the originators of the Ducktape Guys and their series of humorous books on all the things you can do with duck tape (and it’s a lot).  Google them when you get the chance, but meanwhile, enjoy some of … Continue reading

Military Pride In Appleton

Appleton Legion 02

These were taken a while back (I can tell from the camera used).  You see these types of military displays and tributes all around Wisconsin, as it should be. * * * * * *

Duel Cheesehead Connection To Shotgun Lovesongs Novel

Shotgun Lovesongs CROP

Interestingly, there is a duel Cheesehead connection to the recently published Nickolas Butler debut novel “Shotgun Lovesongs”, that being that the author lives in Northern Wisconsin (in a rural area next door to a buffalo farm), and that the books cover photo was taken by, well, me, also from Wisconsin and a proud Cheesehead.  The … Continue reading

Milwaukee born John Ridley Wins Academy Award

John Ridley OSCAR

Milwaukee born John Ridley (who grew up in Mequon) won the Oscar this year for Best Screenplay based on a previous work for the film “Twelve Years A Slave”.  While many Wisconsin born talents have won Oscars over the years (Spencer Tracey, Orson Welles, Fredrich March to name but a few), it was nice to … Continue reading

Stradivarius Stolen In Milwaukee

Stradivarius Six Million

Okay, not something to be proud of.  Hope they catch who did it.  But it is a bit humorous that the thief was decent enough to use a stun gun and not a hand gun with bullets. Theft of Stradivarius violin was for money, not possession, experts say. via Theft of Stradivarius violin was for … Continue reading

The Tripoli Shrine Center In Milwaukee

Tripoli Shrine FRONT

I took these shots on a snowy, gloomy day, so they don’t even come close to the dazzling nature of the Tripoli Shrine Center in Milwaukee.  Didn’t get a chance to go inside, which I hear is even more astounding, but will get around to that next time in Milwaukee. From the Tripoli Shrine Center … Continue reading

Bobby Nelson Cheese Shop – The Little Shop That Could

Bobby Nelson 02

Kenosha has more than its share of cheese shops, and while the more well known is the Mar’s Cheese Castle, a lesser known but just as unique cheese shop is right up the street, the Bobby Nelson Cheese Shop.  What’s coolest about his place, besides the awesome meats and cheeses, are the paintings the run … Continue reading
