This a photo that U.S. photographer, Laura Wilson, took of U.K. cinematographer, Roger Deakins, on the set of “No Country for Old Men” and sent to me. We had lunch in Dallas and I told her that every time I turned on cable there was a film that Mssr Deakins had been DP on.
I’m not really Jack Flash, but for some reason this snap reminded me of the photo of Mick Jagger’s cut hand in the seventies. And I do like the song. Warhol might have done a print of Jagger’s stitched hand…. We have been constantly adjusting car camera mounts over the last three days to getContinue reading “I’m Jumping Jack Flash. 1 Oct 2009.”
May 17, 1975: Mick Jagger smashes his hand through a restaurant window in Montauk, Long Island, requiring twenty stitches on his wrist. Couldn’t find the actual photo. But he didn’t lose a thumb.
I woke up a few mornings ago totally sickened by what art has become of late. As Basquiat tagged: “THE WHOLE LIVERY LINE BOW LIKE THIS WITH THE BIG MONEY ALL CRUSHED INTO THESE FEET.” Art has become a proper whore’s circus. When Beuy’s said: “Everyone is an artist.” I don’t think he meant itContinue reading “Queremos paz. We are here to join the Rebels. 30 Sept 2009.”

Dog? Dictator? You decide… This is one of my fishing buddies from the Big Wood river in Ketchum, ID. He appeared out of nowhere. He barked. He swam. He got an assist on a 13″ trout. He told bust-a-gut jokes. You know how boring casting can get, right? The bottom snap is the front doorContinue reading “Je m’appelle… Pinochet. 22 Sept 2009.”

Hey Ed, The technique of showing an action oriented clip from near the end of a movie at the beginning has a long history.

The basic idea is to increase “the jeopardy” that the audience feels for the bulkContinue reading “Larry Madaras. Feature Film Editor. 4 Sept 2009.”
A number of ©Digital Heaven plugs were used in the editing of “chasing KEINO”. Not the least of which being the ©DH Subtitles plug. I was only advised of it after having re-subtitled “KEINO” for the third time. I highly recommend it – after having torn all of the hair from my head after theContinue reading “vaughan+studio featured on UK Finalcutters Website. 30 Aug 2009.”
