BEHIND THE LENS with Dan Merkel

I had the chance to spend the day with Dan Merkel after the Premiere in NY for "Lost & Found" Here is what I captured as I followed him throughout the day.

Candy Moore.

Candy Moore attended the California Surf Festival and was able to screen the film for the first time. I just returned home from San Diego to receive these kind words.

When you touch others when making films, you know you have done your job as a film maker.

Last night was amazing and I can not begin to tell you how impressed I was by your film.  It was so well produced and captivating.  You must understand that even though I was married to Larry for 31 years….we did not talk shop and I have been relatively ignorant.  I have told Celeste all along that I know more today about  what  Larry  did than I did when he was alive.  Don’t get me wrong, we talked, but we had a very full life independent of what our careers demanded.  We loved our life together and just supported our independent adventures..  All the best with the film and please keep me posted.  I am not a facebook  follower as I have always been a private person. Celeste so makes up for my social ineptitude.  Blessings to all of your family.

Kind words from Carmel

Ok you people in the industry.... keep your eyes open for Director & Editor DOUG WALKER. Mark my words!! And you should all work with him!!  I saw a Second film of his today, another great one. When does a filmmaker have TWO films in One Festival?? Super super Talented. InSightful, Sensitive, Multi-Faceted. He has a very Special Touch. You heard it here first!

‎Was floored by the Sensitivity and Craftsmanship of the first film that she saw today at the Carmel Art + Film Festival. A story-Upon-a-story, first of Serendipity in the Accidental Discovery at the Pasadena Flea Market of a box containing 30,000 images. Then of the Quest to track down, identify, and interview many of the still-living Photographers and Surfers whose History was Held Hidden for Decades in that treasure box. Threaded throughout w incredible archival film footage & still photographs, the stories they tell of that unique time in American Cultural History weave a rich and resonant tapestry. Lost and Found is Masterful Storytelling, full of Nuance and Luminous Spirit. When this special film finds a Distributor, GO SEE IT.

From Carmel to San Diego. Cmon out and catch a screening

Just returned home and am now heading to the California Surf Fest where we are screening Saturday at 8:30 in Oceanside.

Thanks New York Surf Film Fest!!!

"Lost & Found" screens this evening in Carmel

I am honored.

It is an honor to be invited to the Carmel Film Festival this thursday night to share "Lost & Found" The Carmel Film Festival has a prestigious reputation and I thank them for taking the time to look at this film. There are so many other Surf Films that deserve this kind of attention. Maybe this is just the beginning for what Surfing has to come.
