Finishing off a bottle – of flame-throwing gasoline!

It’s been said that, “You can always count on Charlie to finish off a bottle.”

What they meant was, a bottle of flame-throwing gasoline!

In this chapter of The Charlie Kirby Show!, while visiting Utah, Charlie gets to use a flame thrower … for agricultural purposes of course.

Plungers

My three nieces do to the Polar Bear Plunge every New Year’s Day. They’ve all been involved for the past 6 years or so. It’s an event to raise funds for charities and help out those in need.  In 2016 we decided that it would be fun to make a short video to capture the spirit of the event. I’d like to share it again in 2018!

Happy New Year Friends!!!

Tom Morello at Occupy Wall Street

Today was a great day!  I was asked to take a break from my normal Assistant Editor duties, grab a camera and meet our small crew (DP and Audio Mixer) in Zucotti Park to shoot some live events unfolding.  So I got paid to videotape literally 1 to 4 feet away from Tom Morello for his entire acoustic set at OWS!  Got some great shots!  We shot on a Canon 5D and a GoPro.  The GoPro is cool, cause it’s like an HD spycam.  Shoots 1080p, but fits in the palm of my hand.  Most important thing is … my boss is VERY happy that we got a lot of great shots.  And seeing Tom perform live and up close was AWESOME!  Tom truly boosted the energy of the crowd in a good way.  Thanks Tom. 

Here are some still frames of footage that I shot today at OWS.
