Hard work

Gus Nicholson

A project I’ve been working on is taking shape. It’s a complicated affair. Making a film usually is.

As with all complicated projects, it takes a number of people with different resources and many talents coming together to make something like this a success.

In this case, Merlin at Camelot Balloons, Renie Gorsuch of that fine store, Bill Hanlon of Wild Bill’s Emporium and all their employees are folks I’d like to thank for providing their products and services for our use in the making of the film, “Seasons,” a magical story about a ballet I wrote while living and working up here these past dozen years.

I’d also like to thank Sheika Gramshammer and Peter Franke for catering our recent day of shooting in Vail Village. I don’t know why, but I’m always surprised at the generosity I find in our valley. It’s a tough place to do business, but there are always lights in the forest, and I’m grateful for them.

Thank you all.
