I spent a very cold Maine winter co-filming a sizzle for a reality show idea.  Steve Marsel the creator and Director, along with our never tiring Producer Lisa Vitale and myself spent many days traveling, developing characters and experiencing a rather interesting annual event...Ice Fishing.  The project we named, "On Thick Ice"  was quickly bought up by LeftField Pictures and backed by the National Geographic channel.  Months later, we watched the characters we developed, blossom on National TV as they showed the world just how it's done in New England.  Yup. . . characters indeed.
May of 2014, the new NatGeo Channel TV show, "Ice Holes".
