Last week we had a screening of "All the Rage" in Denver. We worked with Dr. Mark Strom - who studied with Dr. Sarno - to do Q and A in order to get press for the event. The extremely well-regarded Westword writer Michael Roberts interviewed Dr. Strom and ran a great article on the day of the screening. After...

For the past year and a half I have worked full time trying to promote and distribute "All The Rage". Work is a relative term; in our culture we tend to equate work with earning, but the only renumeration I have received from this work is the satisfaction of seeing people heal through experiencing the film. It's pretty much the...

- .1 Sometimes we need to take a new perspective in order to free ourselves from what we believe. At least a few times a week I walk in the meadow behind my house; something that was integral to the editing of "All The Rage". My goal is usually to use it as a time to meditate. However, much of...

I turned 49 this year, and while some days I feel a bit long in the tooth, in general I don't have the sense that I'm almost 50. Still, it’s nearly 30 years since Chris, Rachael and I began the band sleepyhead- and that is mind boggling to me. When I was 20 I couldn’t imagine being 30 and now...

Over the years I have written quite a bit about the strange occurrences that have cropped up in relation to my father. This morning I went to shoot a campaign endorsement video for my friend Michelle and I ended up with another mind boggling connection. As we were waiting for her pastor to show up, we were chatting and she...

One of the first questions I get at screenings of "All The Rage" is, "How's your back?", or "Are you healed?" My response is generally something along the lines of, "I'm much better but I have this disease called being human and I haven't fully recovered from that yet." Healing is a journey that does not end. There is always...

Both times that I have attended the Thessaloniki Documentary Film Festival I have made hundreds of images both on the way there- and on the way back. - Both times I have had overnight layovers at Heathrow on the way back that required me to get a cheap hotel. The first time I stayed in an area under threat of...

PROLOGUE This is a post about ritual, health, belief, and systems in general. Often, those outside a system have the kind of perspective that allows them to spot the flaws or anomalies within a system, while those who exist within it are often "willfully blind" to these problems. The case of Enron is a good example. To anyone who looked under...

A few weeks ago I was in Chicago showing All The Rage at the Gene Siskel Center. Having seen our film too many times, I ducked next door into a screening of "Jane", the documentary about Jane Goodall. There were several themes in the film that dovetailed with a lot of what I have been thinking about science, culture, and...

We moved from Brooklyn to North Carolina over 4 years ago. It seems like yesterday and forever. We came back this week to discuss our film "Battle for Brooklyn" with a freshman class of business school students. The next day we had screenings of our films "Half-Cocked" and "Radiation". The screenings were amazing. I don't do much street photography in North...

Cake Sleepyhead from rumur on Vimeo. I have a lot going on right now. I'm trying to juggle promoting old films, and newer films, restoring older films and records, and presenting semi-old films, while at the same time trying to start new ones. I'm also trying to deal with some photo stuff, some travel, and being a parent. Due to this...
