I gave up on Tumblr a year ago, I just couldn’t figure out how to make it work in an organized, searchable way. So I moved my One Man Band blog to Wordpress… www.onemanbandfilm.com. But since no one looks at Wordpress, that’s not much fun either. On the flip side, feisty Tumblr keep telling me I have new “followers,” even though I swear I killed this blog many times. The beast just won’t die.
So how about this… I will begin posting again on Tumblr, but nothing of any particular value (hence, no need to search archives for production gems). Just straight drivel. Notes from the field. Collosal failures. Accounts payable. Let’s do this.
Hmmm. Awkward silence. How to break the ice. Welp, how bout: what am I working on now?
Tomorrow, I drive to Carmel, CA to film Dezso Mollnar, an engineering genius who thinks the future of low-fuel travel is the we each have our own flying motorcycle. I’ve been hired by an LA production company to film him, but they haven’t been to location with me yet, so it’s a bit like I’m working for the boss on Charlie’s Angels. Which is getting to be fairly normal, and as a filmmaker is pretty liberating. We’re collaborating on a style as we go. And as we did on our first shoot last December, Dezso and I will wing it this weekend. Here’s a frame grab of an interview I did with him. I was like, Hey Dezso, should we maybe do an interview? And he said Sure, why not. It’s always good to film people who are on a mission. They’re up for anything. And Dezso has a mission: to get you into a flying motorcycle.
