September-December 2005

ELP moves full speed ahead with the editing process and finishes out 2005 with rough cuts for 5 sections of the film, approximately 55 minutes. Wow! So much work...and still plenty to come.

Highlight of this fall was undoubtedly our amazing trip to Atlanta, GA, where we spent three days following James around--watching him in action on a gig, seeing his home and meeting his family. We shot 5 hours of footage and already edited it down to a great 11 minute piece on Atlanta's best balloon twister.

ELP had great hosts in Hotlanta who helped us keep down expenses and showed us around town. We repaid them with swag and free balloon twisting lessons. Thanks Jason, Michael (and co.), Stacy and Beth!
