Last push - 20 Ways

Even the cast have joined the last big push on Indiegogo to help get the social justice film 20 Ways out to festivals - on average the cost of submission falls somewhere between 50 and 100 dollars - just 50 dollars enables us to send to another festival. Help us push.

Shirley Maclaine

Cloud Nine Day - thanks to my good friend Gene today I got to work with a real star of the screen an actress that awe is all you can say - Shirley Maclaine. Part of the delight was weather meant the crew were later arriving so I got to sit and chat - life, politics, directors, film and acting for a whole hour before hand. We discussed filters, lights, and framing she knows it all. Professional, fun, a real tour de force. She listened and took direction but deep down you just know she knew it all. A delight yes, an education indeed, but most importantly one of those life experiences that enriches.

New website

See the film trailer for our 2011 comic satire - 20 Ways.

View the film then post, share, network to get the film out there.

We'll be using crowdfunding to complete the film and also to teach students in the spring.

Success for student

One of my director mentor students Jay French in the FILM CREW III program took the Audience Award at the 2011 SFCC student showcase in downtown SF. Well done Jay and all his cast and crew.
