Part one of a series of clips (posted in no particular order) I'll just call Life With Stan.

Here, as we are having some sushi at Zanmai in Boulder before a poetry reading (of Victor Hugo) that he was to give next door at the Boulder Book Store, Stan talks about his dear friend John Newell, owner of the Western Cine film lab, Stan's lab for his entire 50 years of filmmaking); muses about the possibilities of making a living by working as a night watchman in "one of George Lucas' minor warehouses, so I wouldn't have to carry a gun"; getting things ready to move to Canada that fall; and how proud he was of his sense of craft and workmanship, that his splices have held up all these years...

They sure have.

About a year later, he would be gone. And yet it feels like he never left when I watch him here- he is still so very present, so very alive, so very Stan...
