A woman set adrift in Europe after the man in her life fails to meet her. Set in Paris, Cannes, Venice, Milan, and Monaco, the search for him reveals the covert nature of his associations and her life with him.
My column in the current issue of the Blackbird Automotive Journal
compares the Ferrari GTO with the famous Ferrari 'Breadvan' that was
owned by my friend Matthew Ettinger when I owned GTO #3987. https://www.blackbird-autojournal.com/
This was Sean's first day as Director of Photography on Person-to-Person shooting the Los Angeles half of the movie with Belén Oyola-Rebaza and Antoinette Greene (whose voice is heard through the phone as she is on the East Coast). I watch and direct from 3000 miles away via Skype.
Both actresses have worked on my A series of ONE in The Devotee (Belén) and The Magistrate (Antoinette).
Person-to-Person with Antoinette Greene-Fisher and Belén Oyola-Rebaza (heard through the phone) is a feature film I have been writing for these two actresses for a few months and we have now begun shooting. The clip seen here was shot the other day and in the finished scene, there will be inter-cuts with Belén in L.A. and Antoinette in D.C.
When we started the project, Belén was living in D.C. but soon relocated to California. Rather than re-cast, I decided we could shoot her half of the film in Los Angeles without difficulty. This clip is not the take that will be used in the film as I was experimenting with getting the sound of Belén's voice through the phone right--there won't be any echo on the voice coming through the phone connection in the final version...

"Saturday, January 27, 2007
They say you can fool some of the people all of the time. Accordingly, I think we should concentrate on this group initially. We can move on to the people you can only fool some of the time at a later date if we deem it necessary. I hope to hear back from my agent about this as soon as he's out of rehab, as I don't think my messages have been getting through."

Exerpt from Ignorance is Bliss
"Out of the corner of his eye, Martin saw Martha shift in her seat. She leaned forward, as though something was about to be decided. This caused her breasts to push up against the neckline of her dress in a way that couldn't be fully appreciated out of the corner of one’s eye. So, Martin turned his head to look directly into the abyss of her cleavage. He was vaguely aware that Murray was talking again."

Meeting Enzo Ferrari
I came across this on a late night stroll in Paris near the Louvre.
I bought Bentleys in England and Ferraris & Maseratis in Italy to re-sell in Los Angeles as a teenager. I met Enzo Ferrari, Juan Fangio and Steve McQueen. I 'grew up' on the set of Mission: Impossible and other episodic TV series of the era. For a few years, I owned a Ferrari GTO that is owned by Ralph Lauren today and valued at approximately $52M. I began my film career by writing, producing and directing Montmartre in Paris in French. I founded and ran a repertory company for film & TV for 20 years in Los Angeles. I created a TV series which had fans that included Marlon Brando. I authored the first new acting technique--Action/ReAction--that was not based on Stanislavski's Method. I am currently writing my third novel and shooting my spy thriller Exigence. If you can't make movies, live your life as though you were in one...
