Tai Chi

Just a reminder that I've had Fletcher two years now. He continues to be a playful, energetic, great little guy. 

One of his finest moments happened while I walked him in the park, off-leash. Six or eight people were performing their tai chi exercise, doing that slow motion zen stuff. Fletcher did not like the looks of them, moving their arms and legs and torsos with just slightly more animation than a tree. The sight of them just didn't sit right with him, and he sounded the alarm, barking like crazy, warning anyone else nearby to stay away from these slow motion people. (Fletcher has also barked at statues.) 

I leashed him up and got him out of there. Then I told him he was a good dog.

Divine Access

A screenplay that I began 12 years ago wrapped production at the end of May. It was an idea that started with Steven Prince, the first couple of drafts written by me. Steve went to work on the script then. At one point, our work won first place in the Santa Barbara Screenplay competition. Nice to have the recognition, but the studios and production companies were not kicking down our doors to throw money at our feet. But Steve always pushed it, uphill much of the time. He ended up directing it.

It's Divine Access, starring Billy Burke, Gary Cole, Patrick Warburton, Dora Madison, and Joel David Moore. Adrienne Barbeau has a nice part in it as well. The cinematographer was Julie Kirkwood, who made the whole thing look just beautiful. As a bonus, I was cast in a role, playing a hayseed who has a near death experience after choking on a hot dog. 

Currently, Divine Access is in post-production. 

Inspired by this taste of acting again, I was motivated to update my head shot:
