Charline's
















Went and shot at a pretty cool new jazz club on main st. called Charline's. Fun shooting and awesome music is a pretty sweet combo.

Met up with Rob again for the first time in a while. Seems like I've known him as long as I've lived in Ventura. Cool but crazy; he probably has more hardware holding him together than bones, and still bombs down hills like a madman.

Lately I've been frequenting local machine shops and a boxing gym in Oxnard when my shutter finger gets restless. As it turns out, it's the same gym Fernando Vargas (who lost to Oscar De La Hoya and dropped out of the sport) used to train at, which is pretty cool since he was my favorite professional boxer for a time before he let fame go to his head.

video
This is the doc Julia and I just finished making. It's an art film about art, and its relationship to humanity. It's a bit out there, but way fun to shoot and edit. Enjoy!

Moto GP Laguna Seca




Also went to the races! I'm not sure these guys are bound by any of the laws of physics.

Big Sur fire (at a distance)











Last weekend I traveled up north to visit my folks out in Arroyo Seco (near Carmel) where a team comprised mostly of volunteers were running a helicopter base which refilled the choppers with fire retardant. Never really saw any flames, but all the smoke looked pretty cool.

Jacob's Grad






















My friend and colleague from Cameroon, Jacob Foko, recently graduated from Brooks. As if that wasn't enough he gave a speech at the ceremony, and at city hall soon after. He also screened his doc "Flux Mothers" from his trip to Congo. This caught the attention of a camera crew from CNN, and their story on Jacob should air in August. I should get an autograph while I have the chance!

I feel pretty cool starting a blog. Or lame, it's hard to tell. At least I'm making up for not having a myspace or facebook account, and my family can see what I'm up to. Let the blogging begin!
