TexasBigStar Launches Another Show

Bary Clower is an entertaining soul. He’s also a legit cowboy and ranch hand.

Mustang International’s TexasBigStar launches a new show based on Bary Clower’s practical wisdom as he educates his star pupil (one and only pupil) Brian B Barrett. The faux-institution BAR Y UNIVERSITY is where Professor Clower instructs his student on all things farm and ranch.

Roy Cox Canine Connection

 

Roy Cox is unarguably one of the top cattle dog trainers in the world!

RoyCox_StandingWDogMustang 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.

Mourning the loss of Becky Moorhouse

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

 

The Kilroy Show

Executive Summary: Mustang International produced a high-end, high-definition music program television show pilot that far surpasses the typical quality of such projects.

In the spring of 2009, Eddie Kilroy, country music producer and the creator of XM Radio’s Willie’s Place, contacted Mustang International. Kilroy, and his friend Willie Nelson, had discussed producing a television show out of Texas using Willie’s truck stop/theatre just south of Dallas/Ft.Worth as the venue. After months of planning and assembling a 35+ person team, two one-hour shows were produced as pilot episodes featuring a number of acts including country music legends Charley Pride and Mickey Gilley. The project required multiple top-quality high-definition cameras. The audio was superbly mixed, album quality, using the 31 channels of audio recorded live during the taping. The result was astounding quality.

Unfortunately, Willie’s Place as a venue did not survive, but this pilot continues to impress those who know what they’re looking for and listening for in video. Mickey Gilley did state that it’s likely one of the very best recordings of a performance of himself that he had ever seen. A week after the taping, Mickey Gilley took a serious tumble, leaving him severely paralyzed. He has recovered some mobility, but unfortunately, he’s unlikely to ever play the piano again as well as in this pilot recording.

This project is still actively leading to new production opportunities in the works even now.

All Around Performance Horse Weekly

Executive Summary: Mustang International was tasked with helping launch a new television program, by producing the original pilot episode, a series of high-profile rodeo events, and the first 100 episodes of the show.

In 2005, three cowboys approached Mustang International asking for help with launching a new television show. They had struggled with previous attempts, but had heard that producer Matt Wallace could help them. After developing the pilot show and helping work through the negotiations with RFD-TV (available on cable, DISH, and DirecTV) the first episode was aired in the fall of 2005. Over the next four years, All Around Performance Horse Weekly, a 30-minute show aired four times a week, grew in popularity and remains a prominent show on RFD-TV. Mustang International handed weekly production over to others in 2009. The initial request to help launch a successful TV show had been completed with having produced 100 new episodes and many more rerun variations. Interesting challenged solved.

Western Lifestyles Documentary

Executive Summary: Mustang International produced an introduction video to a project that is still in production focusing on the real-deal western lifestyles lived by many.

After producing over four years of television with some of the most respected cowboys in the world, Mustang International started initial production of a series of videos to help better document the cowboy way of life. The voiceover is by cowboy balladeer, Don Edwards, who is a local neighbor, friend and movie star.   The project is currently on hold.
