As you can tell from these short video clips, The Cannonball Express is now IN PRODUCTION ! The completed video will first be distributed to those movers & shakers who began endorsing the video project back in 1994. The video will also be cablecast by community cable TV stations all over the San Francisco Bay Area. Furthermore, the author, has about a dozen venues lined up at which to show the video in person. We also intend to enter the video in local and national film festival competitions in several categories; short films, environmental, educational, social commentary and documentary. Wish us luck and let us know by email if you'd like to be notified when the video is locally cablecast to your community.

The finished film will have several purposes. First of all, we hope to encourage homeowners to plant their backyards with fire resistant natives (without discouraging the fire victims among them from rebuilding their homes and suburban lives). Secondly, we hope to help homeowner associations in forested areas, decide whether they want to hire a professional brush cutter, call in a County inmate crew or pitch in and do the vegetation management work themselves. Thirdly, we hope to bridge the gap between the fire professionals and the environmental community so that something constructive can be done about the loss of grasslands to ever thicker brush and generally higher fuel loads. Finally, we hope to build that all-important, critical mass of public support that, after the next big, wind driven fire in a Bay Area suburb, will make, "The Cannonball Express", the fire prevention video that absolutely has to be made, in every county around the Bay Area.

So, we're in this for the long haul and we're having fun doing it. We hope that you have enjoyed this sneak peek at The Cannonball Express. Thank you for visiting our web site.
