Forget Facebook’s bad service. YouTube is worse! For over 6 years I’ve periodically tried to get YouTube to restore my access to my lost hit YouTube channel KidsTalkPolitics.

So I go between 4 year election cycles not using the […]Read more "YouTube Needs to Rediscover Customer Service Motto: The Customer is Always Right"

But when we sold out the Sedona Film Festival’s Mary Fisher theater with 20 people turned away at the door, and the […]Read more "Southwest Tour With THE COOLEST MEDITATION EVER: ANTARCTICA 12.12.12"
I managed to catch the second Sedona Film Festival screening of SATURN RETURNS. A solid script makes for believable dialogue. However, I found the actors delivering the lines less believable. Perhaps it was the lack of dramatic tension when – spoiler alert – the groom dumps the bride at the altar but nothing really happens […]Read more "SATURN KINDA RETURNS"
As Sonic Sea opened a giant whale’s eye rolled toward me filling the screen. The visceral sense of its loving soul brought gasps throughout the crowd.

Remember the 2006 Gore film AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH making audiences aware of global warming, now more politically correct referred to as global climate change?

George Lucas once said sound is 50% of the movie going experience. The new documentary from Matt Schrader SCORE proves that theory and then some, exploring film scoring as an art form.
