And now for something completely different. This vision is such a detour from everything else I have done. It came to me while doing the dishes. The vision began as a busted up trailer in the middle of a field, with a 50's princess bride broken down inside. And then Ty Morin, our magical photo booth operator and all-around amazing friend, suggested the abandoned Sunrise Resort and I was done. There was no stopping me. A dilapidated resort from the early 80s in the middle of a forest... on a river? Yup. Done.
