Hello again….

I’m finally doing some updating to my site. The activity is spurred by me finishing my first movie!
It’s a 6 minute short called On the Bench. And yes I have two other films floating about, but those haven’t been edited. So this is my actual first completed film!!! CAN YOU TELL I’M EXCITED!!!!

Here are some pics from the shoot.

On the Bench Production Stills

I just finished a new film called On the Bench. Check it out at a festival near you!

“To BnB or Not to BnB” or “To Air is Human”

AirbnbSo, for the past few months I have been trying to figure out how I am going to pay my rent post-divorce.  I kept thinking that I could easily just work more hours doing antique restoration and pay it from my wages.  And I could were it not for all those unforeseen events that seem to always be happening to me.  The latest, a severe bout of carpal tunnel.  Both my hands are sore, my gripping ability is diminished, and I only have feeling in my pinky in my right hand.  It’s hard to manipulate tools when you have to guess what your hand is doing.  So, it seems I have to rent the spare room.  I actually dread having to have a roommate again.   It’s not that I’ve had terrible experiences, but I’m already used to living alone.  Living with a partner is also not the same as living with a roommate.  But there’s another option.  A better option…   Read more

Review: C.R.A.Z.Y.

The boys when young...

I came to this with no ideas or expectations.  It just showed up in my Netflix suggestions on the Roku.  C.R.A.Z.Y. is about Zac and his family life through several decades starting in the 60’s.  I was surprised at how many reflections of my own life there were in this film and in the most unexpected ways.  Memo vs Zac – We were both dropped as babies.  We both had differently colored hair patches on the backs of our heads.

—Ok, I never finished the review. But, I watched the film again so now it’s back.  This time I saw it on the Boxee Box. The Roku became a gift for my cousin who is Netflixing it to an early grave. :o)  Sooo….—

Great fun at the Apple Store

This was originally a comment for someone else’s blog post.  But, I feel it stands well on it’s own.

——————————–

I recently went in to the Apple store on 5th ave in Manhattan.  They do have a a line to pay, but since it was buried in between rows and rows of product tables and drooling shoppers I simply couldn’t distinguish it.  So, it seems I cut off a bunch of people.  After a few minutes I realized my error and then immediately realized that the people shopping in the Apple Store at 11pm on a Friday night are not the kind of people that would say something to a poorly dressed, bearded, long-haired, 220+ lbs man with various colors of paint up to his elbows.   Read more

Review: La Bête

La Bête

I went with a group of friends to see La Bête at the Music Box Theatre.  We wanted to celebrate a friends birthday and had all gone for a bit without a Broadway show.  So, the organizer came up with La Bête and we all agreed.  Some of us more freely than others – I’d never heard of the show – and were happy with the results.  Sadly it is closing in a week.  The last performance will be JAnuary 9th.  It seems many shows are closing this month… Fela and In the Heights are also leaving.

If you can get out to see it, it’s worth it.   Read more
