For Steve – NTH 2.34

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

All the best Steve! Putting aside my first three movies (made on a 3/4 inch linear system), I’ve made all my 200 plus films on a Mac. I love it – it’s a very happy day when I spend part of it with FCP. Of course I’m a bit worried about FCP X, but I’m hoping that will work out too.

Don Knotts: Bad Ass MF’er – NTH 2.33

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

This episode features the first 1m 30s of a massive power track, Das Boot in das Wasser, by The Plums. You’ll want to buy their newly-released record, “The White LP” —

BTW, not only is Don a stone-cold killer, he was a real prima donna on the set. But, hey, great artists can be that way. The dog (Buster) demanded Evian water, but he was totally cool. Dedicated to: Woody Allen, Martin Landau, and Anjelica Huston.

Monolith – NTH 2.32

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

Eternal Life – NTH 2.30

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

A post-Singularity life form surfs the Universe with access to just about everything . . . so, why does he sound a bit bored?

Special thanks to our pre-Singularity performers – Shawn Adams, George d’Adhemar, Ian Armstrong, Jackie Flanagan, and the incomparable Victoria F. Gaitán. And extra special thanks to Richard Chartier and Robert Eckhardt for allowing to me to stagger about their lovely home with a camera and notebook in hand.
