or buy EvenHand?

YOU GLAD I DIDN'T SAY SAFFRON?
WILL SCREEN ON THE SUNDANCE CHANNEL
Search for "evenhand" on the Sundance
Channel website for dates and times.
going to share some more The
snapshots with you, but first, here's an update on our newest
Lost City of New York (now called City of Dreams) is a short film, written and to be
directed by yours truly. It will be shot entirely on location in New York
City with a small cast of actors that are mostly already known to me.
It will be something of a fairy-tale/love-letter to my
home town. All in twelve minutes. And believe it or not, in my long
career in film production I have never made a short film. I have
worked on TV MOWs and features, but never a short. This is a result of my non-traditional
film education, I guess. I imagine everyone who goes to film
school makes scads of short films. Heaps of them. All I know so far
is that this will be quicker, cheaper and way less out of control than a
feature. I will also say that I am greatly relieved that it is entirely
unrealistic for characters to have "arcs" in eleven
minutes. Click on the title above for more information, including
actual, but ever-so-brief job opportunities.
also pleased to report that after several months of nail-biting, the
Evenhand journal has finally been accepted by NYCBloggers.com,
a site that organizes New York City bloggers by their Subway stops.
You can find us at the Times Square 42nd Street stop on the A train.
I guess I better pick up the navel-gazing pace here on the IND line;
one journal entry a month is hardly sufficient to call myself a
proper blogger. As regards the Subway, here's a tip for out-of-towners: we don't call them the
"blue line" or the "red line." They are the
"A and the C" and the "1 train," etc. Old-timers
and cranks also call them by their original abbreviated company names
(IND, IRT, BMT),
like I did above.
been a few weeks since New York's Central Park was graced with The
Gates by Christo and Jeanne-Claude,
but I had to share these photos of them in the snow. Feel free to copy them at will so long as you credit the photographer.

vu: Hey, isn't the EvenHand site supposed to be about cops? What's with all the so-called art? Okay, fine:

The EvenHand listing on the
Internet Movie Database has accumulated some votes, but more are always welcome. If you have seen
