LAST 10 MINUTES

Monthly Archives: April 2012

Sunday Mourning

I was in the passenger seat grabbing a moment to page through the Times on Saturday morning. My two little boys were in the back, my wife driving – all going to the farmer’s market. Then the sudden jolt staring back at me with the obituary for Hillman Curtis. Instantly all my greatest fears were on the surface.

I never met Hillman, but I followed his work religiously, spoke of him constantly, and was infinitely inspired. He understood this medium we are all working in before we did. He laid the red carpet – and with passionate generosity wrote the book to guide us. His films are the bible for those of us exploring video portraits and his work the living evidence of his curiosity.

It is heartbreaking to read of his family. I know that parenting is the process of letting go. I also know that parenting is planting seeds, and I am sure Hillman sewed rows and rows of seeds that will produce an incredible harvest – still – the days we have are so precious. So precious….so precious. And it seems so sad losing Hillman.

Those of us who know Hillman through his work know that he is alive. He triggered so many ideas, shared the genius of his heroes, and in the process made us all better human beings.

Nothing matters except for the way we touch eachother. Physically. Emotionally. Spiritually.

Levon Helm (1940-2012)

Atlantic City – The Band

When I arrived in Ithaca for college, before classes even began I had a gig producing a column for a local weekly called, “Portrait of An Artist.”  It was mostly an excuse to be able to photograph concerts in town, mostly up at Cornell.   I photographed so many amazing muscians – from Joni Mitchell to The Band.   Those pictures are slowly coming back to life.   There is a beautiful one of Levon Helm, the great drummer and vocalist for the The Band that will appear soon.  In the meantime, here is a beautiful vocal of Levon’s from the album, Jericho.

Bob Dylan recruited the Hawks (an earlier name for The Band) as his backing band in 1965, but Levon Helm found the highly charged scene oppressive and, after a few shows, left for Arkansas. He later explained, “for the first time I couldn’t stick to my policy, which was to whistle while I worked.”

In a 1984 interview with Modern Drummer magazine, Mr. Helm described the “right ingredients” for his work in music and film as “life and breath, heart and soul.”

This is one of the best obits I’ve read from jambands.com

Levon’s Web site read today, “Levon Helm passed peacefully this afternoon. He was surrounded by family, friends, and band mates and will be remembered by all he touched as a brilliant musician and beautiful soul.

Have Scorsese’s great film from 1976, “The Last Waltz” playing now…..totally amazing!

What is Vintage?

Our video, “What is Vintage?” just launched today on One King’s Lane.  Shot in LA and NY.   It is our first real sync’d sound talkie.   Thanks to everyone who entertained us  and our crew:  Madeline Stuart who held thoughts between the cars coming down from the hills, Wendy Haworth who played Nina Simone on vinyl, Peter Dunham who sent a sofa off to it’s new home  dodging traffic on La Brea, Steven Sclarloff who emerged from the underground on White St and made us miss the country, and Malcolm Kutner, who became our friend.

BIG thanks to Elana Frankel who shepherded this project at OKL and held our hand, Ethan Trask who gave it his blessing, and my girlfriend Susie Feldman from 7th grade.

Mostly this exists because of Stephie – who just dug in and willed it into life.  And David Mishler who worked by her side and kept the faith with incredible patience and skill.
