  3. This video is an outtake video from The House of Dreams Fundraiser video (vimeo.com/100929770)

    The House of Dreams is non-profit no-kill cat shelter in Portland, Oregon. They asked me to help produce a pitch video for their indiegogo fundraiser. They're trying to raise money to cover needed repairs on the furnace and gutters. This is needed to help the house, and the kitties, get through the cold, wet Northwest winters. If you can find it in your heart to support this, please donate. For more info please go to: igg.me/at/HouseOfDreams
