Shared more films with the lonely desert and the critters again. This time was an old jail in Tecopa and part of an abandoned resort facing the Soda Mountains. At one point two curious bats joined us on the floor of the old building.
Robert Fulton, manager of California Sate University Desert Studies Center welcomed us including myself, family, artist Fred L'Epee and our films as the Desert Research Center's guests. Robert, also gave a candid interview concerning some of the environmental challenges facing the Soda Mountains and the Mojave. More on that later along with more films and story STAND tuned...

The Forgotten Film Gallery is a web based documentary film and video art installation project which strives to showcase a collection of films dealing with interpretations of the forgotten and the indefinite time period during and after the present. The Forgotten Film Gallery will attempt to link the past, present and future using unique areas of the Mojave desert and the World Wide Web as it's gallery installation space.
The goal for the Forgotten Film Gallery is to unite the new with the old. Link the past to the future using the remoteness of the desert as the gallery space and the world wide web as a platform to distribute a documentary freely with the public.
By utilizing the lonely desert as an audience. Contemporary artists might continue to create freely without the fear of rejection. Sharing the film on the web will also allow the general public to recognize and value the importance of our often under appreciated past and present natural environment.
