The Park Cities Quail chapter honored Mr. Pickens in 2008, creating an annual honorary award which since has recognized Ted Turner, Ray Murski, Bob Carter, and Ray Sasser.
Motion Media Solutions and Ross R. Mason worked with the T. Boone Pickens Foundation during 2007-2008 producing nearly 50 video history interviews with individuals who had worked with Mr. Pickens in the oil and gas industry, in his philanthropic endeavors and a number of interviews with Mr. Pickens himself. A series of interviews were conducted at the Mesa Vista Ranch, which also afforded an opportunity to capture great footage of the ranch, its ample facilities for hunting dogs, and interviews with staff regarding operations.
Shortly following the production trip to Mesa Vista Ranch, Motion Media Solutions was asked to produce this video to be shown at the Park Cities Quail fundraising event where Mr. Pickens was to be honored. He offered a weekend hunting trip to the ranch with himself on his personal jet, and when the bidding approached $100,000 by 2 primary bidders, Mr. Pickens called it a tie and offered 2 trips to both bidders, doubling the amount raised for the organization.
