Amira & Sam


Since my previous post back in May highlighting the Amira & Sam premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival, the film has continued to be screened at additional prestigious film festivals around the country, and receiving high accolades from critics. Just this past weekend, writer/director Sean Mullin was presented with both the Jury and the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature Film at the Napa Valley Film Festival.

The film, which is expected to hit theaters & VOD January 30, stars Martin Starr, Dina Shihabi and Paul Wesley....  Trailer is attached below + watch a just-released alternate trailer from Yahoo Movies here.

*Super excited for Sean....  He & my brother are longtime friends & West Point classmates.

Douglas Freidman Photography



Seeing this photo (below) of photographer Douglas Friedman -- walking arm & arm with Bonnie Morrison on the grounds of The Glass House, at a celebration event held last weekend for the home's 65th birthday -- prompted a revisit to Mr. Friedman's portfolio....  Which reinforced just how much I am drawn to his work, particularly regarding the relationship between light & composition reflected within his photographs -- select portraits & interiors included above & below.
