    Glads you liked it. And yes, it is a hard watch...read DRAMA.

    But the most importment part...Did you see our name at the end and our Outside Our Bubble logo. :) Ha! :)

    It is really cool to think that as of yesterday a movie that we helped produce is now playing in theaters, some of which I've sat in, And is also now on iTunes, Amazon, and other streaming platforms that we use all the time. Just really weird how things have come full circle to where I've been helped to produce products for better viewing experiences, to now making something for someone to view.

    Definitely noticed the credit to you and your Mrs.

    If you are free to speak about such things, do you have any other similar projects in que that might interest members here? Will this (hopefully very successful) experience help to lead to such things?

    Finished it, and it was well done. I also rated it 5 stars on VUDU, and I didn't do that just because you're involved.

    Though, I did a little "YAY!" when I saw your names in the end credits. :D

    Not sure, it is something we just wanted to "do". There is a lot of stress and we will have no idea how well it did until the qtr as the numbers are only released then. Regardless, we thought it was a great story that needed to be told. (But I still hope to make the $ back to make the movie.) There are A LOT of moving parts that I was not even aware of until this experience. But it kind of exciting.

    We are so upset we did not get out to the premier in the theaters. Not one around us that it was in and I would have loves to have been with cast and crew.

    As a note, at this moment I am sitting just down the street from the local school renamed for Judith Resnik.

    Challenger's launch was very high profile here because she is from here, and so I was definitely watching as it happened (on CNN, I believe). And when the movie replayed the "throttle up" words, I got a chill again.

    I just finished watching the movie. Definitely a hard movie to watch but outstanding. I'm very glad you did this and also rated it 5 stars.

    I watched it last night and thought it was well done. The Challenger disaster was a low point in a bad year for me.

    I watched this over the weekend and found it very interesting and well done.

    I remember being 3 months into my first job at Kearfott Guidance & Navigation and everyone at work was gathered around a TV watching the launch. The company had a lot of electronics installed on that mission. The mood went from cheers, to disbelief, to grim in a matter of seconds. Then, a couple of months later the company lost 5 of it's key program managers in a plane crash in Dallas. It was not a very good start to the year at all.

    I did look for and notice your names listed at the end, and saw the Outside Our Bubble graphic. I didn't know it was yours at the time, but found it very impressive.
    Congrats.

    Thank you kindly. :) Yes, OutsideOurBubble.com is my wife and I and our way of helping other RV'ers. They messed up the logo with the white background. It was sent to them transparent. Oh well. :)

    Yes, you can look at it that way. I found it the day it came out. But in all reality, even though I would like to think of it that way, all movies and TV shows seem to show up.

    Thanks to those that purchased it.

    It should be able to be rented from a few different vendors (iTunes, Amazon, Vudu) :up:

    Yeah, I don’t have vudu or iTunes on my tv, others might be similar, so I thought it worth mentioning.
