You can now view (and rate. And review) the trailer for “Come Fly With Me Nude” on the site for “On The Lot” (http://www.thelot.com), a new filmmaker reality TV show created by Mark Burnett & Steven Spielberg. Which makes me a contender to be a contestant on this show. The thought is mortifying, but as they say, there’s no such thing as bad publicity. Even at the risk of loosing all dignity; one must do what one must do.
So please don’t be shy: take a moment to watch, & start talkin’! Click NOW and cast your vote! You’ll have to do some signup / registration stuff, but then you’ll have access to my blog and those of other rising filmmakers… and have insight to the utter crap we talk about! What fun!
Totally unrelated note: a film I acted in this year, “Little Bruno”, is off to a tremendous start! It’s gotten into several US festivals, and will be screened at Cannes!!! I’m dying to see the finished project myself; it’s sort of a “Goodfellas” with a little “Friday the 13th” mixed in. Serious.
Thank you, and Happy Holidays!
Come Fly With Me Nude made its big-screen as a work in progress at The Film Arts Festival of Independent Cinema on Saturday, November 5, 2005 at the Roxie Theatre in San Francisco. The place was packed, and the film well received. Please check back often for upcoming festival screenings.

MOVIE CLOSE UP TELEVISION INTERVIEW
Dom & Bella — or rather, Todd & I — are looking forward to doing our first television interview in almost a year. This time we’ll be the guests on Bonnie Steiger’s Movie Close Up, on San Francisco Public Access Channel 29. We’ve been invited to talk about — what else — Come Fly With Me Nude, which is this close to being finished. The show airs Wednesday, September 7 at 7:30 – 8:00pm PST.
AT THE SAN FRANCISCO APPLE STORE: “MADE ON A MAC : COME FLY WITH ME NUDE“
In other news, we’ll be doing a presentation at the San Francisco Apple Store (Stockton Street, just north of Market) on Thursday, September 15, 6:00 – 7:00pm. It’s part of their “Made On A Mac” series, and we’ll tell how we used our Macs in preproduction, production, and postproduction of Come Fly With Me Nude. Technology guru (and the film’s writer/co-director/director of photography) Dan Gomes will be there to talk serious computer speak to all the tech-heads out there. And I’ll be there for the rest of you who want to know in plain English how a Mac can make every step of filmmaking 100 times easier. To download a PDF of the information covered, click here.
NOTE: Due to overwhelming response (and limited space), please do not show up unless you have received either email or telephone confirmation from us. Thank you.
The feature film “Come Fly With Me Nude” is finished! We think. We need a test audience to view it and give us their feedback. If you were involved in the making of this project or know anyone who was, we ask that you do NOT attend. We’ll have a cast & crew / friends & family screening next month. For now, we need a neutral and objective audience. You will fill out a brief questionnaire (@ 10 minutes) after the film, which is 96 minutes.
DATE: Wednesday, August 17, 2005.
TIME: Doors open 6:30pm; complimentary hors d’oeuvres and drinks (courtesy of 2223, Skyy Vodka, Izze Beverage Company, Cheese Plus, and SF Brewing company) served until film starts, 7:30pm SHARP (no one will be admitted once film has begun)
WHERE: 9TH Street Consortium (145 9th St., between Mission & Howard, in San Francisco)
PLEASE RSVP TO INFO@DOMBELLA.COM. PLEASE PROVIDE A CONTACT TELEPHONE NUMBER SO WE CAN CONFIRM (our caterers request an accurate headcount). Proof of age required for alcoholic beverages. There is no nudity in the film, only a little naughty language.
You know, being an independent feature film producer is hard work. I recently went to LA to schmooze, press the flesh, blah blah blah. And let me tell you, it was exhausting.
Thank God my special friend Angus Oblong hosted a poolside BBQ during my stay. It was some much needed R&R, and I find myself already blissfully slipping into the LA habit of speaking in acronyms wherever possible. Here I am having some fun in the sun with future Hollywood Heavyweight Nate Weinstein and Lisa “They’re Real” Hurley.
Thanks to Amante, Lavay Smith, The Ramp, Skyy Spirits, Rogue Ale, and especially 2the9s Events for making the fundraiser a smashing success. And a darn good time too! We are still seeking finishing funds! Visit home page for more details.
