"Smoke & Mirrors" was selected as one of the 13 films/videos screened at the 2014 (Dec. 2014) "I WAS A TEENAGE FILM SCHOOL DROPOUT FILM FEST " in Ojai, California.
"Smoke & Mirrors" was shot on Saturday, March 16th, 2013 in an industrial part of Richmond, California that services cargo ships, tankers, and numerous trucking companies. This was an accident of time and place, as I was up the road lying in wait to shoot trains for another project, the setting sun was at the crest of the Richmond ridge casting golden light and seductive shadows which beckoned me to abandon my Godot freight bride to have an affair with this mistress of smoke and mirrors.
