In 1990 Ken produced a video with the kids during their summer vacation. The family lived on a 54-acre farm on the south fork of the Stillaguamish river. The kids were bored, so we set out to create a storyline with all of them acting. We produced on the spot and all of the edits were in the old VHS equipment. Later, Ken worked for Modern Digital and had the FX crew add some effects. The credits are actually longer than the movie itself.
