My last film, 1000, was a new experience for me in several ways. It was the first time I had ever worked with a collaborator, the message was targeted to a younger audience, and we decided to keep it short, one minute for every hour in a hypothetical day. I’m very happy with the way the film turned out; it seems to have universal qualities that speak to people in a variety of circumstances. Now I’m working on an hour-long documentary for WQLN about visual artists in our area.

Hi friends — just a quick post to let everybody know I’m still alive. My friend Abddullah Washington (Bigg Wash) and I just released a 24-minute film, 1000.film, with real people in our hometown talking about their pursuit of excellence. The film is a combination of documentary-style interviews with artistic visuals and creative performances.

The full film will be online shortly; right now, we’re having a series of live screenings at arts centers and neighborhood venues around town. This is by far the best looking film I’ve ever made and I’m extremely proud of it. Here are a couple of trailers to give you a sense of what to expect.

SORRY, THIS HASN’T BEEN UPDATED IN A LONG TIME (9/4/16)
The links are all still good.

John Eger, who teaches communication and public policy at San Diego State University, has posted a fantastic article about advanced technology and the survival of many cities. He’s one of a number of experts who agrees that the world is turning into a collection of powerful city/states in a global economy where nobody is in charge. Excellent reading.

Veteran indie producer Ted Hope, whose credits include 21 Grams by Oscar-winning director Alejandro González Iñárritu, talks about Five Crucial Things We Want From Movies. Short, sweet, and definitely to the point.

Ted has gone back to producing after stints with the Fandor movie streaming service and the San Francisco Film Society. Here’s his master list of distribution case studies, a useful resource for those of us looking for ways to get our films in front of wider audiences.
