Past present and future, forever intertwined

COMING SOON! The screenplay for Changeling’s Return is being adapted into a novel due for publication in 2019. Originally the musical fantasy adventure of American rock star (Morgen with an "e"), whose U.K. May-Eve concert at a ruined abbey foreshadows a mysterious, otherworldly, out-of-body experience, that triggers a sudden, profound commitment to the environment and a dramatic change in his music, its lyrical content, and its purpose. The book will include a section exploring the history, folklore, mythology, and sympathetic magic underlying the tale. In anticipation of the book, Otherworld Cottage Industries has released Mystical Encounter (Songs from Changeling's Return) on a CD that you buy now, or listen to on Youtube free.Click the mosaic to begin your otherworldy audio adventure.

JAMES A. PIKE, PIKE PRODUCTIONS, INC. Interviewers frequently ask Travis about his father, the independent filmmaker who starred Travis in his 1966 feature film Feelin' Good. Travis knows little of Pike Productions' day-to-day operations after he moved to Los Angeles in 1968, but his father visited annually after previewing his trailers at ShoWest in Las Vegas. Click the photo (right), to view a short tribute to the man whose restored Feelin' Good movie clips are now, half-a-century later, helping to reintroduce Travis to the world at large.
