Roy Cox is unarguably one of the top cattle dog trainers in the world!
Mustang International was initially hired by Roy in 2012 to help produce a series of training tools and provide media support on and off-line.
Roy Cox is in the process of working with Mustang International on developing a 5-disc training series on taking a young dog from no training all the way to a cattle dog capable of gathering a herd solo. It’s amazing stuff.
We’re currently finishing up DVD#4 “Pen to Pasture” where the cattle work moves out into the open as the dogs work on their gathering expertise.

Mustang International has joined in the crazed rush to aerial videography/photography. Society and the government continue to deal with “drone” issues. In the meanwhile, we have positioned ourselves to have first-hand experience with this technology. We know what can be expected of the different types of technology that are available. We have immediate access to the basic capacity found through the very popular DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ platform.
In addition to that basic service, we have key partners that we will leverage on your behalf to get you state-of-the-art, highest quality imagery.
In April 2014, Matt Wallace provided Video Assist support to a commercial production crew producing a series of new DODGE TV spots. Jordan Brady was the director, and he also produces a Podcast called “Respect for Process” that discusses commercial production.
During the last day of shooting, Jordan interviewed Matt about video assist services. Click here to visit Mustang International’s page regarding these services.
FYI: Jordan uses the terms “VTR” and “video assist” interchangeably – which is common in the industry. VTR is short for Video Tape Recording. Even though tape is no longer used on set to capture and playback images, the term “VTR” is still used to describe the function on set that originated with video tape machines and operators. A more accurate name for the actual function currently provided on set is “video assist” as it encompasses not only the recording and playback capabilities, but the service of providing high-quality video monitors for real-time viewing to assist the overall production.

DIG is a short film by Toby Halbrooks.
Featured at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and top finisher for the online public choice competition, DIG is a new favorite for other film festivals including 2014’s SXSW.
Mustang International was privileged to help support this effort through video assist services and other general support to the film’s producer and long-time friend, Shaun Gish.
We count Toby and crew as friends long before he and fellow film maker David Lowery produced part of their feature length AIN’T THEM BODIES SAINTS at the Wallace family farm in 2012 in Bosque County, Texas.
Check out the short online as the number of views is approaching 1/4 of a million.
Mustang International is producing a “Learn as You Go” Reality TV (webisode) show.
Young musicians are challenged to record 3 songs and produce 3 music videos as part of a grand learning opportunity. The two siblings, Jake Wallace and Morgan Wallace, have separate bands, and they challenge each other and their mother, Miriam Wallace, in this friendly competition.
Each band records one cover tune, records an original song written before the competition production week and then also writes and records a completely new original song during the band’s production week. All three of these songs must also be turned into a music video.
In addition to producing these songs and videos, the entire process is recorded and will be turned into a web-based series that will have between 20 and 30 episodes scheduled for release in the fall of 2013.
In early 2014, if all goes well, all nine music videos will be voted on by a panel of judges and the general public. Other points will be awarded as well. The winning team gets bragging rights, but everyone wins from the practical experience gained through this process.
In the summer of 2013, an IndieGoGo crowd-funding project was launched to help offset financial costs of this massive undertaking.
Close to 20 young people will have engaged in helping produce this project. Follow along via the website, Facebook and the IndieGoGo project.
This project is still “in-progress.”
Mustang International assisted the director and production crew of Ain’t Them Bodies Saints as key scenes were shot on the Wallace farm in Bosque County. Producer Toby Halbrooks and Director David Lowery decided that the farm and area had the look they wanted for their movie. The farm was established in 1893 by Matt Wallace’s great-great-grandfather, and after multiple visits, the crew was supported by Mustang International for a multi-day shoot in the fall of 2012.
The first five scenes in the movie trailer, in addition to other scenes, were shot on the Wallace farm and were used to establish the appropriate look for a story set in central Texas.

Becky Moorhouse was a friend and gracious lady. She had provided some direction as we worked on an idea to produce a series of videos focused on the western lifestyle. As of today, that project has not been properly financially supported even though we continue to work towards this idea with hopes of producing the series someday.
We met Becky and Tom when we produced the Moorhouse Ranch episode of All Around Performance Horse Weekly for RFD-TV. That was always one of my favorite episodes and proudest achievements while producing that show.
Watch the video we produced of her as an advisor to Mustang International.
In mid-March, 2012, Becky passed on after a long bout with cancer. Link to obituary
Executive Summary: Mustang International produced an epic feeling, hard-hitting statistical review to encourage a very specific audience to consider joining MUP in their work to share the Christian Gospel with the entire world.
Mustang International was charged by the missions agency Missions to Unreached Peoples (MUP.ORG) with the task of producing a new customized video to highlight strategic statistics about the number of people on the planet with absolutely no access to the gospel… i.e. no chance of ever hearing of Christ and therefore having no opportunity to decide one way or another about his claims.
The video was produced with custom music with the goal to capture the epic seriousness of these facts presented. The minimalistic, but high tech look, is intended to allow the data, the facts, to speak with minimal distractions.
