My Letter to the CEO of Rainbow Media

Another scorcher today in Phnom Penh; the Mekong river coils lazily downstream, past boats that look a thousand years old, families tending crops on the far side of the bank. Anyway, this is the letter I wrote to the CEO of Rainbow Media, Joshua Sapan. Rainbow Media Holdings owns HD Cinema 10, the company that […]

++I GOT MY MOJO BACK++

Have just returned from the long awaited and absolutely necessary Visa run to Poipet, border of Thailand where I finally secured my Cambodian business Visa. What a hassle, but at least I got it done and now can extend indefinitely. There’s a bit of a story that goes with the Visa, but first I have […]

++Back from Poipet with a new Business Visa!!++

Yes, that’s right folks. I’m officially able to stay in Cambodia indefinitely thanks to the new Business Visa, granted to me by “my best friends” at the Cambodian border! All I need to keep renewing is….you got it….CA$H. But i’t’s easy, just take your passport with Business Visa inside, $150 bucks for a six month […]

(((A Deal Gone Sour)))

Thought it was worth mentioning this for various reasons: way back in October, when I was scraping by in New Mexico after shooting our next road movie, Susan Hero, which features great native American talent, and great new actors all round, I was very very low on money. **I say this is worth mentioning so […]

++Boiling Guts++

My guts are starting to boil…I can hear stranges noises coming from them, sounds like the bubbler of a fishtank. The rule of thumb here in Cambodia is: “if you see a bar of soap, use it”. But no mater how careful you are, you’re bound to pick up some kind of bug, and I’ve […]

Lukewarm Coffee

On the moto, as I rode to work this morning to teach the officer from the Minister of economics, swerving through traffic to avoid the Landcruisers which are driven with impugnity by former Khmer Rouge bigwigs…I noticed on the power line up ahead, a bushy tailed squirrel prancing across the busy road far overhead. I […]

Reviewing the Rough Cut of Susan Hero

Just received the rough cut of Susan Hero, via poste restante, at the Phnom Penh post office. So far, so good: a little long and the pacing needs to be tightened, but the editor, Giacomo Ambrosini, has put in a lot of effort to make this the best cut yet–have’t watched it all though (very […]

Lovely Ladies Picking Their Noses…

Everyone picks their nose in Cambodia; if you don’t when you arrive, you will gladly adopt the habit. You’ll soon find yourself probing a nostril with a gentle, wayward backhanded gesture, as naturally as Samba the elephant tosses a bucket of husk-filled turds as he passes by on Sisowith Quay, back home afgter a day […]

Tired–but it’s Good Kind of Tired

Still waiting to hear about the hilltribe documentary; in the meantime, the villagersa re being harassed by the local police and Cambodian government. Susan Hero, our New Mexico road movie, seems to be on hold due to unsolvabel equipment problems. Need more cash, and it’s slow to generate… Thus, an appeal to any readers who […]
