Infrequently updated blog of thoughts and feelings whenever I have time to sit down and write. It seems as though I have less and less time to sit down and write these days. That's why this page is static most of the time.

I'm down here at the Los Angeles Film Festival this week with my son, Nathan, whose music video "Help Me Please" is featured in the Future Filmmakers Showcase. There are several very impressive works created by high school students on the program. Some are short documentaries, narrative works, comedies and other music videos. Today's screenings helped to introduce the young filmmakers to each other and several of the festival staff.

It took us a while to get our bearings around the festival area, so we didn't see many other films beyond the short subjects, but we did make a trip to the Century Plaza in downtown L.A. to catch a screening of An Inconvenient Truth. Part media circus, part rock concert and part political rally, the film was introduced by Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, Al Gore and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (who insisted on calling guitarist Sambora "Santora").

Day two will probably begin with more music videos in the morning with some documentary features or narratives in the afternoon. For now, it's late and time to hit the sack.
