@ Abel Reels

Author: Travis 0 comments
I can't believe I actually made it down to Abel Reels in Camarillo, California in one piece. Aside from Air Canada temporarily losing my camera jib crane in Vancouver at YVR, then making me sit in a small room and wait for 30 minutes as they looked for it and had customs clear it, it was a great flight down. I'm glad I got a shuttle from LAX, however the driver's skills were borderline roadrage. I'm just glad I was able to sit back and relax. I arrived at Abel Reels around 4:30pm this afternoon and was greeted by the president of Abel, Don Swanson. Don's the mastermind behind getting me down here to film and a great guy. In fact everyone at Abel is fantastic. Don gave me a quick tour of HQ and it's unbelievable the amount of hands on precision crafting that goes into every Abel Reel. After that I had the pleasure of having dinner with Glen Krapff Abel's chief designer, Jeff Patterson, head of sales and Don and his finance, Heather. Great food and company. Tuesday morning we'll get to work filming. More Later T>
