Sci Fest LA 2016 Opening Night Party

Sci Fest LA 2016 Opening Night Party

My wife, Margaret, my film partner Ken Hanada, and I attended Sci-Fest LA 2016′s Opening Weekend Party on Sunday night, May 8th, at Hollywood’s historic Formosa Cafe. It was definitely a Hollywood scene complete with swag bags full of goodies. The party was on the roof. Hollywood after dark is almost always more interesting than the daytime version. I had been to the Formosa Cafe many years ago when I went to the premiere of the first script I wrote that got made into a film. The movie shall remain nameless for reasons that will become obvious. It was screened at nearby Paramount Studios. I invited a writer friend of mine along to share the thrill of seeing my name crawl up the screen in a darkened theater. That was the best part. The worst part was...

“Tunnels” of Vancouver – “Rules” research – Part 3

“Tunnels” of Vancouver – “Rules” research – Part 3

John Atkins, our fantastic tour guide, saved Chinatown for our last stop. It just so happened that they were filming while we were there. Vancouver is a major movie and TV production city. Major. I noticed that a huge amount of shows I watch are filmed in British Columbia. For example, the bus in the photo on the right is (I think) supposed to be a Japanese bus used in the terrific original Amazon TV series “Man in the High Castle.” Also, “Fifty Shades Darker,” the sequel to the hit film “Fifty Shades of Grey,” was filming in Gastown, a famous section of Vancouver, while we were there and will continue filming  through July. My buddy Louis, a guitar player in our band Fifty Shades of Sixty, has his car in the “Fifty...

“Tunnels” of Vancouver – “Rules” research – Part 2

Probably the coolest thing on our “tunnel tour” was learning about “prism glass.” Prism glass is a type of building glass used to redirect natural light into underground rooms like basements and “areaways.” In 1895 Frank Lloyd Wright designed and patented 41 different designs. In the picture above my buddy Louis shines a light from his iPhone through a piece of prism glass (held by tour guide John Atkins), while our friend Vicky looks on intently. Below are photos of prism glass encased in a sidewalk. John “moved heaven and earth” and we were given access to a basement area directly beneath a prism glass sidewalk grid so we could see for ourselves  how the natural lighting system really...
