There is only one direction to go…FORWARD!

user
I recently read (again) the Steven Spielberg biography by Joseph McBride. There is a passage in the book that always gets my attention. “Early in 1977, when Close Encounters was still months away from completion, George Lucas showed a rough cut of Star Wars (without John Williams’s rousing musical score) at his San Anselmo home, in northern California. The audience included executives of Twentieth Century-Fox; Gloria Katz and William Huyck, who worked on the script; and several of Lucas...

But as long as I was going to do the change to monochrome, I also cleaned up a few other things and before you know it was almost a new film. The story line is unchanged, but I...

TRAILER for a new short filme, "ETHAN" now on IMDb
