THANK YOU, to all those that helped me celebrate my 75th birthday.

Last September I had my 75th birthday and to celebrate we had a 3 day party.  Along with my friend and editor Ed Keller, we looked thru some of the footage and threw together this little video of the event for the people that were there.  If you did NOT attend, i still think you’ll have fun watching this little 7 minute “thank you”.

I’m sure I’ve missed some… Thank you too.

Families of Shifted Light

I am really proud of this movie. Its my favorite so far.   This film is a true collaboration between a number of creative people.

Last year I worked with my editor, Ed Keller to create an hour long Silent film called “Moisture”. When we showed that film in an art gallery, there were two jazz musicians that played music LIVE.  In the room that night was a young Poet, Miles Frode and he was moved to create a poem that he later recorded and we wove that into a re-edit of the film that brought it down to about 17 minutes.  THEN I got together with Martin Behnke who did an amazing job at writting an original score for this film. Then sound engineer Bradley Sauders worked his magic as he wove together the performances of multiple musicians to create the master audio track that you will hear in this final version of “Families of Shifted Light” which premiered at the Rogue Gallery of Art on January 25th 2019.
