Hollywood Storytelling from an Independent Filmmaker

100.3 The X, Rocks Interview with Pasquale Murena


Nic and I at the world premiere for “Chip & Bernie’s Zomance” doing a Q and A with the audience

The Morning After with Nic and Big J is a radio show in Boise, Idaho on 100.3 The X and I had the pleasure to be on their show to promote my feature “Chip & Bernie’s Zomance” and the Idaho Horror Film Festival. The interview is 6 minutes and 30 seconds long and gives you some great stories about the film, the process and how we torture Bernie in the film. They proudly display a poster from the film in their studio now and these are two cool guys. Check out their podcast for some great interviews with other zombie filmmakers here and if you ever meet Big J ask him to show you his Rambo tattoo; don’t worry it’s in an appropriate place. We need to convince him and Nic to get Chip and Bernie tattoos.

Chip & Bernie’s Zomance World Premiere



The world premiere of “Chip & Bernie’s Zomance” at the Idaho Horror Film Festival was a success, no one threw anything at the screen, no one boo-ed and no one said, “I thought this was a real documentary on zombies.” I had my gal on my arm so like the Gershwin song goes, “Who can ask for anything more?”

Oben Tripod and Eclipse Fail

On 14, Oct 2014 | No Comments | In Equipment | By Pasquale Murena


I had my camera all set up to take a time-lapse of the eclipse this last week and I was going to edit all the photos together to show you the different transitions. I was pretty excited at 12:20 am when I went to bed, I practiced a few times up to this point and was confident that when I woke up I would have what I needed.

Nighttime Photography Experiments


I can take pictures of the Milky Way everyday for the rest of my life and I will always be fascinated by the stars above me. I am always trying to figure out new ways to take photos of the stars to make them interesting because I enjoy new ideas and teaching others new ways to take photos. During our last Orion Workshops class, which is a class I teach on astrophotography, I had the idea of blurring my images. The image above is what what you would see in a regular nighttime photograph, the night sky in focus and a good amount of stars. This image is of Half Dome in Yosemite National Park from the parking area of Glacier Point.

Yosemite in the Fall


Going up to Yosemite National Park in the fall I have heard complaints because the waterfalls are not flowing, these are people that do not appreciate the outdoors for all their beauty. Autumn and I took a trip there this August and the year before that we went in September. Most of the waterfalls are dried up that time of year and has been even more these last few years because of California’s drought.
