Callback:  TBD
Shooting – 1 day during the week of 5/11 or the week of 5/18

Usage:  1 year TV and Internet

Jagger Kaye

leave a comment

As some of you may have noticed, Jagger Kaye’s website which has a chapter in the book is down and he hasn’t sent out any emails to his list in over a year.  Also his Facebook account has been deactivated. Cannot tell from the internet what exactly has happened but in the meantime we’ll be pulling his chapter from future editions just to be safe.  Hopefully he is alright and if anyone knows anything please let me know.

Best,
David
