This one snuck up on me. Thanks to +Steven Smart for the recommendation as our very first Listener's Choice episode. A great recommendation for a terrific and touching film. 
 
This week on The Next Reel 120: In the Mood for Love

Wong Kar-Wai's sumptuous film "In the Mood for Love" premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2000 and, while it lost the Palm d'Or, it left an indelible impression on everyone who saw it. A story of a connection between a man and woman who learn their spouses are having an affair, the film deals with their growing friendship as they help each other come to terms with the infidelity. In the process, they also struggle with their own draw to each other. Join us — Pete Wright and Andy Nelson — as we discuss the first of our Listener's Choice films. Steven Smart won the drawing and chose this film for us to discuss, and we're thrilled he did because we both fell in love with it. We talk about the nature of the love between the two leads played by Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung and how, on the one hand, the draw they have to each other is never consummated because they don't want to stoop to the level of their spouses, while on the other hand, they both are afraid that it's not what the other person wants so they don't act. We discuss the stunning look of the film, both from a cinematography standpoint as well as costumes and production design, and how the artists behind those elements make the film what it is. And we chat about director Wong Kar-Wai and how he started making one film but ended up with this one (perhaps because he did this without a script?). It's a beautiful film that touched both of us with its art and finesse. We had a wonderful time watching this film and have a great time chatting about it. Tune in!

After last week of meetings with clients, I managed to secure some personal time in Boulder with two decades of alumni of In The Buff, the a cappella group I was lucky enough to help start. The group is still going strong, and the concert they gave was proof that everything we stood for twenty years ago is still every bit as strong today. Thanks boys — and here's to another 20 years.

Photographer. Writer. Broadcaster. Former feudal lord.
Introduction
I am a photographer, writer, broadcaster and educator. I've spent the last two decades in the media business; first as a journalist, then as a corporate marketing and public relations specialist with a focus in social media for the largest for-profit education concern in the US.

As it turns out, I'm vastly better at working for myself than other people. In addition to client film, video, photography, and design projects, I host of a number of podcasts including The Next Reel, the super-fantastic film podcast; and Taking Control: The Organizing Podcast, followed by hundreds of millions for practical organizing advice. If you're reading this, you should probably subscribe to both right now. I mean seriously, who doesn't like movies? Or getting organized? No one. That's who. 

The rest? I teach graduate marketing and culture courses at Marylhurst University, I'm married with two kids, three cats, and soon, a puppy, but only because the rats died.
