- On September 21, 2013, a Teetor & Meyer family reunion took place at Lake Wawasee, IN.  Still with        us, first cousins Marjorie Teetor Meyer and Jack Teetor, Sr. discussed with the next generation the          interest of making a film based on Marjorie Teetor Meyer's book, "One Man's Vision The Life of                Automotive Pioneer Ralph R. Teetor."   And so the journey began.

- Early 2014, Jack Teetor, Jr, began developing an adaptation of his Aunt Marjorie's book into a                  documentary script with his sights on a one-hour film, now expected to be 90 minutes. Teetor wrote        on and off over the next eight years tracking his vision to tell the story of his great Uncle Ralph.

- During these years, Teetor's cousin Jim Andron, signed on as composer for the film.  Teetor's

  brother Daniel Teetor, signed on as Photo Editor.

- Teetor completed another update in July of 2022 for his 32th revision of his script as a result of Ralph    Teetor's archives, revisions during recording of temp V.O. track, and reviewing of rough footage..
