Dream Learn Plan—A Life

I dream. I learn. I plan. Or should that be I plan, learn and dream? We started out to get a computer in the hands of everyday people, and we succeeded beyond our wildest dreams. — Steve Jobs I’m not really sure which ones came first but I do know that my days are filled ...

Boy Chases Girl – An Idea…Musing on Love

Boy Chases Girl – An Idea Over the weekend I finally got a good chunk of silent time to sit with the story of Boy Chases Girl. The story, for the most part, has lived in note books and parts of it in script format for a while now. But over the weekend I wanted ...

Anthony Minghella on Morality in Cinema

When I heard Anthony Minghella had passed away I shed a tear. Quite literally! For I knew the world, and in particular the world of cinema, was poorer for it!   As evidence of this I present to you a lecture given by Minghella only days after winning the academy award for The English Patient. ...

As I was waiting for a ride to the family Christmas dinner I sat down to watch a little something and came across this—an interview with Writer/Director David O.

And yet these times—times when everything seems upside down—can be the best of times for fresh views of old truths can bubble up providing new perspective.   Now let’s face it, even though all of us, all sentient beings, want ...

A Life—A Journey

Today we have a lesson in history. Or perhaps I should say some personal history that contains a lesson. As I am naturally loquacious however I will give away the ending upfront just in case you miss it embedded in my rambling. Ok, here it is: be true to yourself. I know, I know…it’s cliche to ...

How Can I Make You Remember Me?

As a fan of the band Hammock and having recently purchased several albums I wanted to shoot something for one of their amazing soulful numbers. I chose, “How Can I Make You Remember Me?” from the album, “Chasing After Shadows…Living with Ghosts.” See here: hammockmusic.com/​chasing The piece came about because I was heading into town (Melbourne, ...

Film: Life’s Rudder

Update: This all sounds rather naive. And will be updated in time.  Lessons For Life Much has been written on the subject of movies as todays moral compass (By “morals” I do not mean right and wrong from a legal point of view…that would be the domain of ethics. Rather, I am talking about the ...
