Correction on Last Post

Ooh. This is embarrassing. Upon closer inspection of the cover, I realize that my post about being named Time Magazine's "Man of the Year" was not entirely accurate. Apparently, I should have said that I was named "Person of the Year." That means I beat out men AND women! This just gets better and better!

Richard Ramsey named Time Magazine's Man of the Year


Wow! I must say I'm completely flabergasted. I didn't even know I was nominated, much less that I would win. And to think that I almost lost to that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad from Iran.

Well, I guess I better clear my schedule for the imminent tours and book deals. Looks like that interview with Stone Phillips is going to happen after all. I hope it is not too immodest to congratulate myself. This is quite an accomplishment.

Exclusive Interview with Richard Ramsey

One of my students, Elias Thompson, made this video in one of my Media Technology classes. The assignment was a self-interview. The students had to play both the interviewer and the interviewee, and edit it together. Elias decided to play Stone Phillips interviewing me.

It's flattering...Well, the concept is flattering. The bald cap...not so much. It's also surprisingly accurate...Well, the answers are accurate...not the being interviewed by Stone Phillips part. Anyway, here's the video:


Thanks to Elias for allowing me to post this.

Psycho

Well, sorry about the lack of posting over the past week, but I wanted to make last week's DVD announcement the headlining post for a few days. ;)

My wife is hilarious. Over Thanksgiving my brother, Wil, took a picture of Kristina and his girlfriend, Paige, preparing dinner. You know how the screen on a digital camera goes black as the picture is being taken? When Wil pushed the button to take their picture they were both smiling pleasantly at the camera. The screen went black, then revealed this.

By the way, you can see my lovely wife in The Oath of Desormeau now available for sale on DVD. Visit our sites for details. ;)

Reflections on The Oath of Desormeau Premiere

This past weekend, approximately 400 people attended the Houston Premiere of The Oath of Desormeau at Houston's First Baptist Church. We are extremely grateful to those of you who attended. We'd also like to express our sincere gratitude to the staff of Houston's First Baptist Church for being such gracious hosts and making this event possible, and Vollmer PR for so generously getting the word out.

Here are some images from the Premiere:

Opening Words.

David Attebury (Julien Desormeau) and Erin Arnold (Claire Rousseau) made the drive down from their respective colleges to attend the Premiere.

A Question and Answer session was held after the screening of the film.

Also, making drives from college, were Loren Grush (Matilde Rousseau) and Samuel Crites (Luc Rousseau, holding mic).

During the Question and Answer session, Sam Crites told the audience that making The Oath of Desormeau was the most difficult and most rewarding thing he had ever done.

Loren Grush (Matilde Rousseau), talked about how faith in God can sustain you during the filmmaking process.

Leigh Patterson (Simone) shares her experience during the shooting of The Oath of Desormeau. The extreme heat and prehistoric insects were repeated topics of conversation.

Santry Rush (Jacques Renard) and Michael Heathcote (Doctor Domaison) said the friendships formed on the set were among the most significant rewards of making the film.

ENCORE!


Well...sort of. Since quite a few papers in the area printed the wrong date (they said Sunday when it was really Saturday), Houston's First Baptist Church has been gracious enough to grant us a second screening of The Oath of Desormeau tonight at 7:30pm.

So, if you wanted to see the movie last night, but were unable, here's your chance. We hope to see you there!
