Partial Listing of Past Projects

David Ulloa brought to life a World War II documentary entitled "The Trumpets of War." Shooting began in France during the 50th anniversary visit of the veterans of General George S. Patton’s Task Force Alpha.


Mr. Ulloa is also working on a feature film about a single platoon assigned to Task Force Alpha. The men in this platoon commanded by Lt. Robert Hamsley are now honored war heroes because of their selfless actions while crossing the Brittany peninsula. We are extremely excited about this film's potential.

"10,000 Feet" is a documentary about the fascinating, dangerous, and often overlooked process of drilling a natural gas well and the people that make it look so easy.


Natural gas is fast becoming one of the most widely used clean burning fuels, but where does it come from, how do we get it, and who are the roughnecks that risk their lives so that we can have it? 10,000 Feet answers those questions by telling the story of the people and their machines that safely drill deep into the earth to bring this natural resource into our lives.

"Positive Parenting After Divorce" is a video tape designed to help divorcing parents in raising their children. Hosted by Ellen Lancaster, you will meet real people who have made successful transitions from spouses to partners while raising their children.


This video also helps to open the lines of communication for parents, lawyers, mediators, counselors and family practitioners, by discussing the common denominators found in people who work well together after divorce in the interest of their children.


Ellen H. Lancaster has practiced law in Texas since 1983. A mediator for the last four years, she teaches Alternative Dispute Resolution and 40-hour seminars in basic mediation at the University of Houston/Clear Lake. She is a member of the executive committee of the Center for Conflict Analysis and Management at the University of Houston and is president of the Galveston County Mediator Association.

Dino's educational program is called "Dino's B.E.S.T. System" (Balanced Equine Stretching Techniques) and is endorsed highly by Pat and Linda Parelli. This video, titled "Level 1 - Basic Stretching," begins with Pat introducing the concept of massage and stretching for horses; he then introduces Dino.


Dino goes on by systematically teaching and demonstrating his techniques for stretching all of the major muscle groups on your horse. His methods and techniques are well illustrated, simple to learn, and most importantly, easy to perform. His emphasis throughout the one hour program is safety for both human and horse by using proper technique. This video is good for anyone who loves their horse and wants to give him something special in return. It is a must-have for ALL equine professionals -- competitors and practitioners alike.   For more info go to: http://www.dinosbest.info/index.htm

"Horsemanship can be obtained naturally through psychology, communication, and understanding, versus mechanics, fear and intimidation."- Pat Parelli

This video introduces the viewer to the topic of Natural Equine Orthodontics.    Hosted by Spencer LaFlure, you will understand how motion in the jaw affects your horse.   Runtime 60 min. 


“Equine dentistry is about motion....  If the lower jaw has freedom of movement; forward, backward, left and right, then the horse’s head will have balance and the horse will have freedom of motion as well.” 

  1. -Spencer LaFlure.

Part 2 - Cantering the Gaited Horse


Have you ever, as Pat Parelli says, "tipped your horse up into a lope" only to find all manner of bone-jarring, cross-firing, four-beating, pace-galloping footfall confusion? In this follow-on to Gaited Horses, Naturally! (2 DVDs and a book), David delves more deeply into the problems associated with cantering.


Here you will find detailed instruction on helping a horse find a clean, consistent, three-beat canter even though it doesn't come easily to him. Included are detailed, slow-motion examples of all the variations, so you can once and for all learn to identify what those legs are doing!


The principles of the Parelli Program - On Line, Liberty, Freestyle and Finesse - provide the basis for the techniques that David uses, and there are plenty of examples of horses who have successfully learned to canter with this approach.  To purchase a copy or for more information go to: http://www.davidlichman.com

Participating in the principal underwater shooting on the WWII Underwater Series.   Most recently, dives on the USS Clark and U-352.


Over the years there have been but a mere handful of films that touched on the onslaught the U-boats launched against our shores. We (and who better than divers) want to not only tell a great discovery adventure story, but also graphically present the evidence that proves how close to our shores these historic series of events occurred.


The hi-definition images that we are capturing will reveal all in a Kralyevich Productions, Inc. (KPI) and Seeker Digital Productions (SDP) WWII Underwater co-production.

In 2007, I signed on as a dive team member and underwater cameraman on two projects: Dan Crowell's "WWII Underwater" and KPI's "Quest for Sunken Warships," a four-part special series for the Military Channel. "Quest", originally titled "Sea Battles", takes viewers through some of the most awe-inspiring wrecks in the world while telling the stories of what sent these ships to the bottom. Our focus is to shed light on some of the most fascinating conflicts fought on the oceans’ battlefields.

Equine Hanna Somatics® (or EHS) is a natural method of mind-body integration for performance enhancement, pain relief, longevity and an increased sense of well-being (for both horse and human) based on your horse's natural movements and thought patterns.


EHS is an adaptation of Hanna Somatics®, a proven, natural and safe method of pain relief and sensory motor training for humans, adapted for horses. Like humans, horses experience stress and develop chronically contracted muscles. Chronically contracted muscles often create discomfort and restrict movement. EHS is a hands-on procedure for teaching horses, along with their riders and handlers, about voluntary and conscious control of their neuromuscular systems.

He helped dash the Clovis-First paradigm, holding that the first humans arrived in the Americas about 12,000 years ago, when he unearthed evidence of human habitation dating back 16,000 years at the Meadowcroft Rockshelter near Pittsburgh. His research championed the role of prehistoric women as central to the development of language and social life. Now, pioneering archaeologist James Adovasio of Mercyhurst University is on the threshold of unlocking yet another of archaeology's mysteries.


Mercyhurst University's own Adovasio and C. Andrew Hemmings, one of the leading Paleoindian underwater archaeologists in North America, will lead a team of scientists on a NOAA-funded signature expedition for submerged evidence of early Americans in the Gulf of Mexico off the Florida coast.
