I thought my heart would break and I was crying uncontrollably watching BAND OF BROTHERS, a viewing long overdue (it was made in 2001 for heavens sake).... this was the episode where men from Easy Company (the Band of Brothers) stumble upon a concentration camp at the end of World War II.   They dont know what they are seeing and cannot comprehend the horror.   Brilliant Stephen Speilberg and Tom Hanks created this wonderful series, which magnificently and most ...

Last summer I did a movie in Boise, called ALMOSTING IT.   It's always good to write about the work one does, but this one is a little different as I think this film and the way it was made is taking us into new and exciting territory.   The industry is changing dramatically and no-one quite knows where it is going.  The big bucks are going into the big event movies, with multiple stars to back the them ...
