"Nobody cares about the technology. It is easier. Now you have auto-focus. It is becoming very difficult to make a bad picture, very difficult. But who cares about technology. Did he use digital? Did he use film? Who cares?" is his response. "If Stanley Greene is using the same camera as you or I, he will make a better picture, because he has the eye.

And Now For Something Completely Different

I never got to finish this when I was in California, so this is where it will stand. In Thousand Oaks, there is a small cigar and whiskey bar that rolls their own, if you will. Daniel here works there three days a week keeping them stocked. Unfortunately, we never could get a time together for a formal interview. I put together a nice tune and published it with iMovie, which is far inferior to Final Cut....don't even get me started. Anyway, enjoy!
