Though CHARLEMAGNE! Has been rejected by 12 film festivals so far, Hunter’s Moon played it last Saturday preceding one of my all time favorite movies ever, George Kuchar‘s Hold Me While I’m Naked. It’s pretty cool b/c CHARLEMAGNE! is dedicated to George.
I got an email from one of the fest’s organizers a while back and they ended up showing my movie, which is a big thrill. I’m very proud of the picture and I am so happy somebody out there wants to show it to people.
The Hunter’s Moon Festival takes place in Northern Ireland’s woodsy regions. Willie and his cohorts make awesome zines and soothing music with some concrete elements, nymphy and droney in cool hand made packaging. Lovely stuff. This whole thing makes me very happy. He was kind enough to send me this package packed with goodies.

Wowee it’s been a while! Busy as a beaver these days and not feeling very reflective as am engaged in processes one must ride out in a sport of psychic surfing. I surf in the brain, not on the shore.
So I totally effed up FELONY FLATS. I got a little crazy with the filters and sound options on my new setup and went a little overboard and got pretty disgusted at what I did to it so I dumped what I did and started over. It was a great feeling because I learned many things to get to the point of throwing it all out and starting over again.
Not this last weekend, but the weekend before I shot another Death Doesn’t Hide Her Panties sequence. In this picture a big motif is the doppelganger, so I’ve invited the actors from FELONY FLATS, the first installment, to come back as different characters. Shot a scene with the fearless Kim Bissett where she plays a talk show host named Letty Sumac. The name of the show is Cup O’ Joe. She interviews the director Bob Moricz and Todd Morris shows up as a noisy musical guest.
These days I find that I have the best luck writing scripts on 3 x 3 Post It notes. I prefer the light yellow kind. There’s just something about it that makes me focus my thoughts so everything congeals properly. I tend to self edit a great deal before I even get the words out on a page. Writing my screenplays on post its make me focus and edit even more before letting the words spill out. You just don’t have a lot of room for padding on post its. For me, it’s the way to go. Who needs screenwriting software, man? Sheesh!
