#49 Kickstart the Cure

27Feb

Shane joins Tom to talk about a Kickstarter he recently launched for a full length documentary on floating.

Tom gets a quick lesson in how Kickstarter works as far as funding goes, and quickly compares it to an 80's movie he saw. Quick catch up with Tom and Shane personally, and then we review some changes that Shane made to the Tent and discuss titles for the Documentary.

#45 Dominic’s Amazing 90 Days

12Jan

Dominic joins Tom and Hardy, to discuss the tremendous impact floating has had 
on him, and his entire life. In a span of about 90 days, Dominic has created 
enough artwork to fill an entire art gallery. He knows this because he has
been invited to show his work at a gallery, and has so much that he will take 
some of the pieces and put them in a book that he is publishing. This is from
someone who, prior to their first float on October 1st, had never completed
a single piece in his life. 

This is probably one of my favorite stories I have heard regarding floating directly
changing a persons life. I feel very honored it happened at The Float Place.
