Running Around in Front of the 8 Ball

With my savings from teaching,and the rest of the advancemoney, I’ll have just enough to squeak by with a decent machine. Still moving forward onSusan Hero, which I’ll continue to edit on my old Mac laptop (keyboard […]

Stills from the Shoot / Leap of Faith

Quickly, before I forget; here is a link to the production stills from our recent shoot up NOrth in Ratanakiri province: http://www.camerado.com/docs/ratanakiri_alienation/index.html Now, I want to let you all know I have just made a momentous decision while eating a prawnburger for lunch; I have decided to quit my remaining teaching job and focus 100% […]

Back from Ratanakiri / A striking dream

Back after a week in the forest of Northern Cambodia, working on the doc about indigenous land issues. Listening to Black Sabbath here in my modest lair/office and regrouping: although Phnom Penh is a small, laid back town compared to New York –which is to my liking — it’s a whirring metropolis compared to Ban […]

Anatomy of a Scene

Check out some frame grabs from one of the tougher scenes cut so far, and it’s still only rough since I haven’t added the material of Dr. Morell on the road [EXT Car shots] Seen below are grabs of 1) Dr. Morell (played by Dr. alan Rice) shaving just after arriving in New Mexico 2) […]

You are now leaving…the toughest year of your life

Not much more I can say. And I am not being melodramatic. Nor am I a rich guy from Connecticut with a hidden trust fund. I’m a guy who was reduced to a bowl of PHO a day as I slowly, trickingly, watched my money run out, after a year of unspeakable trials and tribulations […]

==> Rainy Season <==

Rainy season has begun; yesterday on my way back from PTC computers with some new memory for my laptop and a power brick (backup power), some of the streets were flooded to the tailpipe of my motodriver’s machine…certain streets we had to turn back, or take wheezing, wayward sloshing loops through streets on higher ground.

+Jesus Christos+

Came across a lost page of the Bible today, it fluttered down form the Tamarind tree… Felt like the ultimate loser yesterday, very doubtful about everything. What am I doing here? Then again, I have a place to live and a working space, whereas I was at one point reduced to living on foodstamps in […]

Morning…and beyond

And it’s time to head over to NGO forum to do the paperwork for the upcoming video in Ratanakiri, finally. Now here’s the rub: I’ve got too much work now, I think. I teach at two English schools, I’m editing Susan Hero (of course) and now I want to make this video for hire, a […]

Quack Update

Continued editing the scene with Morell and Javier in Morel;l’s lair. Some lighting issues, nothing severe; aciting by both is fabulous, Morell is very very real and very convincing. (Morell is played by Dr. Alan Rice, actor and scientist, who took a break from working with New York’s Museum of Natural History to play the […]

Colonel Panic and the Lost Data

Finally solved the OS X problem, which had led me into single-user, UNIX command line only territory, by re-installing a system from scratch (though I was running 10.2.8 and the only replacement I could find here in Phnom Penh was 10.2) In short, I was getting what’s known as a recurring “kernel panic”, the rough […]
