- So this ends up
being the NFL announcement (due to the previous locked
entries) and to the VR180 crowd, it's also the New
Zealand announcement. Kind of a storytelling mess.
However, I'll deal with all of that after the video
and explain all the stuff that is missing in this
- The locked entries
may even still be locked in 2030 when The Official
Journey Vol. 3 comes out. That's how strange this
situation is. And as I said above, there are 2
audiences right now and the VR180 audience is quite a
bit bigger. So to them, this is announcing both huge
plot-lines and even THAT is hidden within what looks
like a very boring video. I will eventually have
to do a "State of the Union" video where
I re-announce the announcements to that crowd.
There was no real way to make the New Zealand
announcement a VR180 film other than just throwing it
in the 3D theater I built which just seemed kinda
cheap? I mean I guess nothing really needs
announcements. I can show up in New Zealand the same
way I showed up in Costa Rica, right? Hmmm...
interesting way to look at it.
- But of course The
Journey is about capturing the moments and I knew
today was special because tomorrow is a ridiculously
massive moment in not just my life, but the life of
VR180. If we somehow convince the NFL to adopt this
format in any sort of meaningful way? Holy shit. Game
- Of course "we"
hasn't even been announced, probably because we
haven't really defined "we" other than to say a good
friend shared one of my VR180 videos with his friend
at the NFL and the dude loved it. That was only 10
days ago and he already scheduled 4 hours of meetings
for us with tons of people at the literal NFL tomorrow
- It's literally
starting at the top. Well I guess the start was with
the AAA Columbus Clippers, but that was a free
endeavor bound only by access to a press pass. This?
Oh this is much more. This is money, this is
contracts, this is producing VR180 content for a
league worth $163 Billion dollars which is more than
the NBA and MLB combined. If this works tomorrow? It's
just a really big deal. So much so I needed to
just capture how I looked and felt the day before. How
much it seems quite clear that my Delorean days are
over and the literal calm before tomorrow's
- It's also so much
more that's housed within the previous two entries and
like most hollywood stories seemingly destined to be
hidden forever. It could be a simple explanation in
2030 as we gallavant through these VR180 adventures in
Vol. 3, or it could be so much more. It's one
I have to keep private other than to tell
everyone me and Talya are great! Kids are great! This
is a massive opportunity and I made a really,
really good reel for tomorrow and have full confidence
in what it lays out. Take it or leave it, I'm
satisfied with my part (so much so I screamed "YES" at
the end of it the first time I saw it). I've
controlled what I can, the rest is up to The
Journey Gods as I used to say. No matter what the fate
is, I'm alright...
- ...and all that
other stuff? Well, the answer is the truth.
Communicate the truth. Repeatedly to anyone who will
listen. Things will sift out and the only thing you
can control is if you were honest. So you just keep
expressing that. I will say that I'm super lucky to
have a good list of people who have known me for 20+
years to bounce things off. It helps in showbiz. A
- Alright tomorrow.
Let's do this.
