It is the third day of shooting for the NOVA documentary that is being shot by Committee Films about The Statues that Walked.  So far so good.  Fortuitously, the several cop


ies of the book arrived! We got 3 advance copies that we are going to take to Rapa Nui (arriving Friday).  I am very happy for that as we can give a copy to Sergio, Francisco and others who have worked with us -- as well as donate a copy to the museum.  The last two days were spent filming in the LA area -- first at CSULB (in our archaeology lab) and then over in Culver City where Max Beach works.  Max Beach has been leading the animation efforts for demonstrating how the statues work.  His office (IDA design) kindly supported this work and our intrusive filming.  I spent a lot of time the first day providing "head shot" interview material.  Ben Awes (the Director) had a long list of great questions that I was asked to answer.  I have no idea how I did: I cobbled responses together as best I could.  We will see...

Right now we are in Miami waiting for the flight to Santiago, Chile.  It's an overnight flight so somewhat brutal. i hope to sleep through much of it.  Once we get to Santiago, its a simple 5 hour flight to Rapa Nui!
