Just got an email from the brother Robbie about this good really good problem he is having. Read it and then please do what he says!

Hi there!
I want to let you know about something really rad that has happened in my life recently.

You are receiving this e-mail because you are either an huge inspiration of mine, I admire you more than you know, we've hugged before, you are a collaborator of mine, you are a close friend, or all of the above.

I've been developing a documentary web series about couch surfing travel and the culture of free that exists in the world that I've opened myself up to.

I put together a treatment for the series and made a simple little trailer for the series and submitted it to an Independent Film Channel contest that was calling for web series entries under the theme of "The Road to Individuality." I saw it as a way to move the project forward as an exercise for my idea, at the very least.

Turns out that the nice people at Independent Film Channel really like my idea. And now I'm a finalist!

If I win, they give me a little chunk of change and I leave very soon to shoot the series as I travel the west coast (Canada to Mexico) in a couple weeks.

So yeah, I'm pretty pumped at the unexpected awesomeness of this situation.

I'm inviting you to view my trailer as well as the other five finalists by clicking on the link below. My series is titled "FreeStyle: A Couch Surfer's Guide to Travel."

If you like my idea please leave your bright shining comments below my video. I'd love to hear what you think.

I plan on making this series win or lose and this has just stoked the fire more for me.

Thanks again, fellow awesome person.

You rip, rock, and rule.
