The Economic Club of Indiana has the mission of providing a public forum for the discussion of economic issues within the state. The most prominent method of so doing is by means of a luncheon they host approximately once per month at the Indianapolis Convention Center with a guest speaker addressing political, economic, or social matters. The cost of attending a luncheon is $30 for members and $35 for nonmembers. The number of members in the organization is low as there is no great benefit to the membership — which costs $60 — outside of the discounted luncheon tickets.

I would visualize incredibly complex scenes to film — often involving peril within HO scale layouts — and try to capture them. As soon as I started filming, I would realize the immensity of the task involved in bringing what I had envisioned to celluloid and I would start taking shortcuts: lighting is for losers; don’t worry about the dog walking past; backdrops serve no purpose.
