I’ve had my precious Prius Pearl since 2007 and all these years I’ve been obsessed with the back up camera. So much so that after wrapping my short film “Pearl” DP Jen May and I decided to drive down the Hollywood Hills in reverse and attempt to shoot the back up camera screen with her 5D. We covered the 5D with black cardboard and here is the result. The footage did not make it into the film (often what I find aesthetically pleasing is apparently NOT. As I am often reminded by my producer husband), but it’s fun to finally look at the footage and share it with anyone out there that has a similar obsession with their back up camera…anybody… I think it’s probably time to get a wide angle lens and start shooting with it instead of fantasizing about driving around in reverse while I shoot the screen in my car.
This week take a peak at what is happening in the digital art scene of Los Angeles.
I recently submitted a video art piece titled “Sisters” to the Downtown Los Angeles Film Festival. One of 15 digital shorts selected, I’m really looking forward to the screening Saturday morning (see details below). Meanwhile, the artist reception will be at LACDA (Los Angeles Center for Digital Arts) this Thursday night as part of LA’s Downtown Artwalk. Hope to see you there!

I recently did a collab with the awesome Turkish technology review channel, iPhonedo on YouTube. And since the video posted last week the awesome peeps of iPhonedo have been arriving on my channel SuperCaliListic. So cool. One tiny setback…I don’t speak Turkish. So this video goes out to the iPhonedo Army. Thanks for all the love and I hope you enjoy hanging out in Super Cali Land!
Bütün iPhonedoculara teşekkür ederim.
Yakınlarda, YouTube’dan iPhonedo isimli harika bir Türk teknoloji kanalı ile çalıştım. Geçen hafta video yayınlandığından beri, iPhonedo izleyen harika insanlar benim SuperCaliListic isimli kanalıma uğramaya başladılar. Ne güzel. Bir tek minik problem var ben Türkçe bilmiyorum. Bu videoyu iPhonedo ordusu için hazırladım.
Gösterdiğiniz ilgi ve sevgiden dolayı hepinize çok teşekkür ederim. Umarım SuperCaliLand’de geçirdiğiniz vakitten memnun olmuşsunuzdur.
Often when I walk up or down stairs I find myself thinking about scenes from an Alfred Hithcock film or M.C. Escher’s “House of Stairs”. Tuesday as I walked up this particular set of stairs I decided to film the experience. Click to watch:
The grandparents are in town so Jesse and I decided to go to his office to do our taxes. Let’s just say I’m hard at work. Hard at work analyzing how my sweater makes me look like a matronly librarian type while I spin around the room. Let’s just say I’m not the paperwork type and I’m avoiding my very intricate receipt filing system. Which consists of wading up all my paperwork into a tiny little box and then sorting each meaningless scrap the day before my taxes are due.
So my husband is producing the musical American Psycho and the other night he brought home a very lifelike and therefore very scary Patrick Bateman doll. I kinda freaked out and banished the figurine to his office. Click to watch.
It’s month 5 and time to reenter my cyber life one short vlog at a time. This week Baby Deco gets his first look at iMovie and I do some tummy time and rolls with him. It’s a meet in the middle kinda thing. Click to watch!
This past weekend Jesse, BOB, Domino and I drove up the coast to my home town, the Santa Ynez Valley. Check out footage from my girlfriend’s baby shower (she’s due August 29, only ONE day from me!) and of the beautiful HWY 101 coastline.
This past weekend I drove up to Santa Barbara to act in a short film. Click to watch:
Between allergies and a characteristically weak immune system I have spent a good part of my life sick in bed. Although I find it to be miserable, apparently I also find it to be entertaining, as I have shot some of my favorite videos with a “sick” theme.
It all started with this photography film shot to Shel Silverstein’s poem “Sick”:
My next cold induced film was as Andie Mills for my YouTube channel “Life With Babs”:
And then this week again, instead of taking a sick day on my main channel SuperCaliListic I decided to make fun of my horrible cold and “unidentifiable face rash”:
