If you have been following my blogs you would know that I am working on some TV or Webisode Concepts. These relic and treasure concepts are taking shape pretty quickly here. In fact some are really coming together and even surprising myself with how they are coming together. Each concept should have 6 episodes ready to air this Fall or early Winter. A brief overview of what I have cooking.
Temerity Mag or Temerity Magazine is the latest creation that I am probably the most excited about. It has had a long history evolving from a Conservative political magazine uniting Conservative bloggers and authors across this nation to one that united relic and treasure hunters across the world together and provided them a platform to launch their efforts. Well, that strategy, while it served the “cause” it did little to accomplish my goals although we did share in great success and a handful of victories. Now, Temerity Magazine gets an extreme makeover and will match my vision for relic and treasure hunting, the hobby and industry like no other product. I can’t give you the nitty gritty details because I am sick and tired of having others with greater resources copy my effort and beat me to the punch.
I can give you a bit of a hint though. My two inspirations are Paul Harvey and Norman Rockwell. I am not sure how the relic and treasure audience will accept the changes but I am so damn excited about it that it will not dissuade me even if I end up loosing all my readers I have worked so hard to build all these years. I do want to thank all the great authors that had Temerity and took advantage of the platform I built for them in the past. With every issue it was so humbling to weave together these great authors works. I will miss that, but one thing I have learned through this process is that I can always count on my effort as flawed and hit or miss as it is. With my schedule changes and my business really in need of a different direction, these formats just work best for me. I feel my readers will be rewarded as well.
Probing History is the next best project I have in the kitchen. I am glad I am only shooting for 6 episodes though this year. My hunt site demands won’t let me get to the 22 or more privy digs. 6 privy digs are already lined up for this hunt season and I am counting on each one being an episode, but I may have to throw in a few more if a couple of the holes are barren, although I think it is good TV viewing if I find something or I come up empty. Although those empty holes may have to be Mature rated as I won’t be in good humor having to dig with no payday!
Currently there is an offer through a production company for me to appear as a Privy digger on their concept. So depending on how that all shakes out, this effort may get pushed onto the back shelf. I am struggling right now with their time frame and honestly trusting that their concept will fit my vision. It would be great to work with them as they have produced some shows I have really enjoyed and they have been there and done that.
Yet, I am on the fence right now about putting this effort on the back shelf in favor of their concept that I am not privy to at this time. Don’t get me wrong, a payday would be nice, but I have scrimped and saved paying off my debts so I can weather the storm I have been digging through these past three years. It may just pay off to push my concept through and do it my way instead of settling for a chance that may or may not fit.
Grizzly Groundswell is more my personal approach to hunting relic and treasure. This is where I will take you on the hunt following Treasure Trail Trees and Stone monuments looking for Outlaw caches and throw the entire grizzly arsenal at the property. It will be more of a how I do it approach.
Grizzly Garage Sale is the one that will be the most fun! It will also probably be the most popular since we are going to have so much fun filming it. Michelle my lovely wife and I will be taking our viewers along with us as we garage sale the back roads looking for relic and treasure to use in our home and to resell. The bulk of the concept is based on our relationship and enjoying a day traveling and hunting for that relic or treasure to make our house a home here in the Dream Fulfilled Grizzly Backyard.
