Help Us Create Television That Makes A Difference!
We’re beyond excited about POSITIVELY SPEAKING! So much so, that we even dusted off our very rusty acting chops to make a campaign video with a little fun and a whole lotta heart. We hope you enjoyed it.
As seasoned veterans of all kinds of production – some purposeful, some not so much - it’s utterly fulfilling to truly know that we are in alignment with our souls’ purpose: contributing to the expansion of consciousness toward a more loving, caring and connected paradigm, by bringing this 12-episode series to the world.
In any collaborative effort, you’re only as good as the people with whom you surround yourself. Having said that, though you met him and felt him in the video, we’d like to say a few words about our amazing, courageous, inspiring and empowering host and co-producer, Bill Poett. Bill is an accomplished author, teacher, speaker, radio show host and founder of The Warrior Heart Project - one of the most expanded humanitarian efforts impacting the planet at this time. In POSITIVELY SPEAKING you’ll get a fly-on-the-wall view as Bill has a dozen, intimate conversations with all kinds of heroes - every day and celebrity - those passionate, determined, warrior-heart men and women committed to making a positive difference in their lives and the lives of others. We’ll witness their life-changing, soul-driven stories as only Bill can get them to reveal. But to make POSITIVELY SPEAKING a reality we definitely need your help.
To produce and deliver this powerful, uplifting, timely web series to a worldwide audience, our funding goal is $35,000 in 45 days. This money will cover all of our production costs – equipment & materials rentals and purchases, crew & location fees, as well as meals and transportation - to shoot, edit and deliver 12-thirty minute episodes.‡
That breaks down to less than $3,000 per show, a bargain by any production standard. But don’t confuse inexpensive with cheap. We have years of experience making productions on a beer budget look like champagne.* This show will boast very high production values.
And think about it this way – being a co-creator of POSITIVELY SPEAKING is one of the finest holiday gifts you could give to yourself, your loved ones and the universe for that matter.
Our promise to you is to have all 12 episodes completed and viewable in the early part of 2013. Happy, positive new year indeed! And for all contributors, not only will you have our undying gratitude, but we have some pretty nice rewards for you, too.
This isn’t just a crowd-funded project, it’s a crowd-produced project. This is your dialogue, folks. These will be your beliefs and your solutions as expressed through the experiences and stories of people who are contributing a positive, loving energy to humanity through acts of courage, humility and integrity.
So, we want to hear from YOU -- suggestions for guests as POSITIVELY SPEAKING develops and hopefully grows way past 12 shows; interaction and discussion from you on our blog and website as they grow and develop; but first things first… please share our campaign with everyone you know!
On behalf of Bill and our dedicated team at Coyote Pass Productions, thank you for assisting us in manifesting POSITIVELY SPEAKING. Our love and appreciation,
Luis and Beth
‡ Should we not meet our funding goal, we will still be able to do fewer episodes or at least a pilot.

Their critically acclaimed feature-length documentary on Cuba “Regreso” was an audience favorite at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival where it had its world premiere. Since then, this film has screened worldwide and been honored numerous times for both artistic and educational merit. Beth and Luis are members of the Writers Guild of America. Several of their screenplays have received awards through the Guild’s diversity program, and they were the writing staff for the Eagle-Award winning situation comedy “Los Beltran” for Sony/Telemundo.

Since 1988, he has studied, taught, and trained with military, law enforcement, and corporate performance experts throughout the United States and Asia. Bill holds eleven martial arts degrees and is a knife fighting close combat instructor with more than 20 years of experience working with individuals and teams for whom peak performance is literally a matter of life and death.

Bill’s greatest joys in life are his wife Robin, and three amazing daughters, Miranda, Kayla, and Becca. As an adventurer, sports fitness specialist, licensed pilot, skydiver, and ultra-light backpacker, Bill lives by the creed that life is not a spectator sport. Bill lives, writes, and conducts workshops in Rancho San Julian, the last family-owned and operating Spanish land grant ranch in California. Deeded to his great-great-great Grandfather Don Jose de la Guerra, the ranch is where the family raises grass-fed beef on over 15,000 acres of land just north of Santa Barbara.
