(CHILI INGREDIENT BELOW)
A couple of decades ago, I left the corporate grind and tried my hand at making video productions. An appreciation of veterans and their stories led me to my initial efforts, with a documentary film about the sad fate of the US Asiatic Fleet early in World War II. In particular the film focused on the story of the USS Houston (CA-30). It became a lifelong passion to interview veterans and capture some of their peculiar insight to the human condition as it relates to war. Maybe it helps that I too am a veteran.

THE LAST STAND OF THE USS HOUSTON remains one of my best sellers. It is often purchased with the highly polished Dutch film - THE BATTLE OF THE JAVA SEA for which I paid US Distribution rights. The two films compliment each other very well.
And then, there are an eclectic mix of films that over time found favor with various markets. The relaxation series of snowfall, country roads and airplanes in flight is a favorite of retirement homes. One special film called SNOWETRY (snowfall with poetry) came about as a project with a poet who lives in Florida. Enjoy browsing. I hope you find something here that will enrich your life or the life of someone you love. Another version is SNOWFALL Serenade.
