Wonder Boy
Today we lost a great director, a great storyteller. I'm deeply saddened by the loss of Curis Hanson, he was one of my favourite directors. It was 1997, October, a cold wet rainy evening and I went to see  LA Confidential . I wasn't sure what to expect, thi...

Let's See What Comes
Unfortunately we're not going to get to make '10 Days in December' at the end of the year as hoped, or at all, it's taken a new form, one that's going to take a lot more time to write and produce. But, I would still really love to shoot something soon. It's...

Ben Wheatley - On Down Terrace
As I get ready to go into production on my next film, my third feature length film (second dramatic feature) I was going back through some old email, notes, pieces of advice and I came across an email from director Ben Wheatley ( Kill List, High Rise ). I w...

Bubbles
'10 Days in December' Character Bubbles We all live in our own bubble, but we move in and out of other people's bubbles. It's important to remember that when building characters and writing a story that has an ensemble cast. So it's not just focused on the ...

I haven't been blogging much of late. It's all been on social media, as we work on our Seed & Spark campaign for a 10 Days in December proof-of-concept. We've hit the campaign trail again, this time we're looking for $3000 so we can shoot one scene from the...

It Is What It Is?
Comes a point when you realize no one gives a crap about you. Outside your own circle I mean, outside your family. In the big bad world, no one gives a crap.  Everyone else is the star of their own movie, and you're just a supporting character, an extra, ba...

10 Days - Update

No Rules
First rule of film is there are no rules. OK, there are rules, and it helps to know them, but once you know them, you can break them. There is a cinematic language, there is a way of doing things that makes sense, and it's best to understand that, so you do...

The Waiting Place
My biggest stumbling block as a young writer, wannabe filmmaker, was my own lack of confidence, and need for validation. I had a need for someone to tell me I was doing a good job. If you wait around for that, you’ll get nothing done. Confidence and validat...

This is my least favorite Trader Joe's in the area. The staff are very unfriendly and rude here, especially to kids, which is so unlike any other Trader Joe's I've ever been to. The parking is also bad, but that's pretty common for TJ's, and there are no spots to return your carts so there are carts blocking the few spaces available. Because of the bad checker we had today, though, I will not return to this location.

My wife and I rarely get out and Le Petit Bistro did not disappoint. Liked the simplicity of the classic French menu and the small-scale setting. Staff were attentive and friendly, but left us alone to enjoy each other's company. Lobster tartlets were the appetizer special and were delicious, as was the almond crusted sole with bernaise (the veggies on the side were lovely as well, cooked tender-crisp and full of flavor). My ONLY disappointment was the tart tatin, was obviously reheated in the microwave because it was cold in the middle, apples were mushy and flavourless on top and pastry tough. :( But the rest of the meal was very nice.

Extremely rude older man working in the store, bald, grey beard, glasses. Seemed annoyed that I was in the store. Went in to buy quite a bit of things for a cross country journey, had planned to spend a lot of money. He asked if he could help, I asked for a bulb, he gruffly directed me by pointing in the general area, "Over there" he said. He seemed annoyed at my kids because they were being curious and chatting. As we browsed he asking again, more impatient this time, if he could help, I said I was browsing, he scoffed and turn away. At this point I decided to leave, he was making me feel uncomfortable and unwelcome. I bought the bulb, he didn't say thank you, and he was not at all polite. So decided to take my business elsewhere. Wont be returning. Recommend you don't even try it.

I booked my cab last night with specific request for a child booster seat for my 5 year-old daughter. I needed to take her to speech therapy this morning since our car broke down and I chose SV Cabs because of the great reviews. Not only was the cab 8 minutes late, but there was no booster seat and the cabbie tried to convince me she could sit in the back seat and be fine. I was not willing to risk my daughter's safety and after all the arguing it was too late to order a new cab and my daughter had to miss her appointment. The cabbie did not apologise but instead just gave me a dirty look and drove off. When I called the company to complain, they HUNG UP ON ME. Never ever again will I ask Silicon Valley Cabs to help me out.

Called at 2:15am, for immediate pick up, had just finished work, confirmed order, 45 minutes later, still no sign of driver, called back, order still not picked up. Waited a further 15 minutes. Still nothing. I'm at an hour wait now, it's 3:15am, I want to get home. 3:30, still nothing, I have to call my wife, wake her and the kids up to come get me (we have one family car, no other rides available) 4am I'm just home, I live 15 minutes away form work!!! Appalling service. A joke! You call a cab, isnt it a reasonable assumption that a cab should arrive in a timely manner? And if you call a cab shouldn't the company understand that you need to be somewhere? NEVER, I repeated, NEVER, use this company.
