NOT PORN!!

by pcb123 on Oct.07, 2009, under AMUSEMENT, PROCESS, VIDEO

I recently finished co-shooting a feature-length comedy called Not Porn. Fortunately, that’s an accurate title. It’s about a guy who makes sexy movies, his colleagues, and their romantic complications.  Here’s a visual sample.

And here are some production stills, taken by Rocky and Ojay.

That’s a Glidecam rig that I used a lot on this movie, with an HVX-200 on top.   Respect and thanks also to Willie Tipp,  the other cameraman, as well as Director Chris Kessler, Gaffer Wilson Gabbard, Grip George, AC Ro, and ExecProd Henry.

Also gratitude and respect to Radiohead for their inspiring song that I put in the sample, Trickster.

A Sitting

by pcb123 on Sep.03, 2009, under PROCESS, VIDEO, ZEN

The zafu (cushion) is from Bodh Gaya, site of the Bodhi tree.  After Siddhartha/Shakyamuni’s breakthrough there, he went to Sarnath, outside Varanasi. That’s where I got this dangling cloth. I wasn’t able to concentrate on my breathing while I was there, but now, many years later, I bow to India from my perch in Echo Park. The relics aren’t important; they’re just signs.

RECKONER

by pcb123 on Aug.17, 2009, under AMUSEMENT, VIDEO, ZEN

Composed by Radiohead. Performed by The Interbeings – a virtual band consisting of Joe Lamattina on drums, Michael (henceforth Mikhail) Pessah on bass, and me on guitars and vocals. Don’t forget Lisa Lamattina, who did over-the-counter percussion and videography of Joe.

The visual style of this cover video is informed by Thich Nhat Hanh’s teaching that all things contain all other things. So I am you and we are both that lamp. Please enjoy while breathing in and breathing out.

I shot my sections and those featuring Mikhail, and I edited it all together. Mikhail mastered the mixed audio.
