Filmmaker Bio:

This film was made at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, when our county of Santa Cruz in California had a strict “stay at home” order. The entire film was made with our 6 family members and our dog on our organic flower farm in Aptos, CA. Josh(dad), filmmaker. Kari(mom), producer. Lucy, Monty, Henry, Emma(kids) & Gibson(dog) are all featured in the film.

Three thoughts from the filmmaker:

1). The Maroon Bomber still works everyday on farm pulling trailers and chasing deer, but never both at the same time.
2). The Maroon Bomber will be in at least 2 kids camp movies this summer for Thomas Farm Films.
3). The windshield wipers on The Maroon Bomber stopped working, but it hasn’t been an issue because it doesn’t rain in CA anymore😢
