Hollywood Storytelling from an Independent Filmmaker
This photo was take in Bryce Canyon National Park, I loved the one tree ending its cycle in the foreground with the life of the trees, clouds and sky in the back ground. Makes me think of the contrast in this quote, love is an invisible thing and so is hatred. So which one is the reality or is both? Yet, Twinkies are not invisible and I eat those so am I not gaining weight when I do? The mysteries of life…
Sitting at home, smoking on a bubble pipe and enjoying a cup of hot cocoa I received a call from the President of the United States of America; I immediately jumped to attention spilling my bubbles into my drink. I will not go into the entire conversation but he ultimately said, “Pasquale your country needs you…” The way I was asked to serve my country was to be one of the very lucky few to go to a NASA’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate Social being held at NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center.
My last trip up to the Sequoia National Park was an exuberant experience filled with hikes down Tokopah Falls, up the Buena Vista Peak and of around the General Grant Tree Trail that I always enjoy doing. At night I try to do astrophotography and look for new ways to mix up the type of photos I do.
As the first storms of autumn hit Yosemite Valley over the last weekend I went back and looked at some of my photos of Yosemite from my September trip last year. I always enjoy the look of Fall since I grew up in Southern California where we never had season changes.
Bernie is stunned that he is going to be in a film festival about butterflies since our movie is a comedy about zombies and two best friends. This is when I have to explain to him that his best attributes have nothing to do with thinking and his job is to be my stunt double in life threatening scenes.
We are very honored that my feature film “Chip & Bernie’s Zomance” will be a part of the Monarch Film Festival in Pacific Grove, CA near Monterey Bay taking place December 10-11 at the Lighthouse Theater.
Sitting in a theater where Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, Hal Roach, Buster Keaton and Harpo Marx sat watching their own comedy gems with William Randolph Hearst and his love, Marion Davies can only get better sitting in that theater with my gal. On our recent trip to the The Enchanted Hill we took the CA State Park’s Grand Rooms Tour that takes you through the estate and gives you a one reeler of archival footage of the castle during the 1920’s and 1930’s in the theater itself.
