Happy Grandparent's Day to all Grandparents


"Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children."

My 26th screenplay



I've devoted so much time and energy over the past two years to producing my first feature film HAPPY FATHER'S DAY that it occurred to me that I haven't written a screenplay in years... so!... this morning I began my 26th screenplay, the socio-political comedy EXODUS...

"Two Los Angeles black women, a surgeon and a Starbuck's barista, form the Democratic Republic of California and separate from America."

Afghanistan may be Trump's Waterloo


The headline in today's Washington Post reads,"Trump announces new strategy for Afghanistan that calls for a troop increase", which kind of reminds me of a Viet-Nam War protest song by Pete Seeger (photo above). The chorus goes...

"They were waist deep in the big muddy and the big fool said to push on."

The criminals who dropped the atomic bomb remain free


On August 6th, 1945 the crew of the Enola Gay (above) dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima - a city filled with men, women and children civilians. The heat from the blast literally melted the flesh off people. More than seventy years later the radioactivity from the blast is still killing people.

An estimated 90,000–146,000 people died in Hiroshima and 39,000–80,000 died in Nagasaki. Not one member of the Enola Gay crew, or their superiors, or the politicians who ordered this abomination, was ever charged with terrorism or murder.

Our HAPPY FATHER'S DAY movie now has a great Director and Production Manager



I am happy - thrilled actually - to announce that Keran Rees (he's the bald guy on the right) and Greg Williams are officially our Director and Production Manager respectively.

Keran is an amazing director who has been passionate about HAPPY FATHER'S DAY since Greg first told him about our project. And Greg? Well,  we all know that Greg has been one of the main creative forces driving HAPPY FATHER'S DAY since early last year.
