Report Back on Butterfly Town, USA Screening

The advance screening went well! 

The Monterey Herald's, Walter Ryce wrote a very nice review:

"This is the story of one man's vision of protecting the monarch butterfly sanctuary in Pacific Grove, California," the smooth-voiced narrator tells us. That's an indication of where the film's loyalties reside, but that bias is mitigated by some of Bob's detractors. This is a well-balanced meal of a film: a little starch, a lean cut of meat, lots of healthful vegetables and a little dessert of entertainment value."

It was also the perfect time to escape to Pacific Grove during the STORM OF THE CENTURY— Da da dum — as water flooded our apartment and turned streets into great places to kayak in San Francisco. 

Thank you to the Monarch Film Festival and the town of Pacific Grove for welcoming this film.

Butterfly Town, USA Advance Screening

Most of you know I've been working at Concentric Media over the last few years on a documentary project. We're having our first public screening! The Monarch Film Festival in Pacific Grove is hosting the advance screening of "Butterfly Town, USA."

The screening dates are:
December 10th, 2014:  8:35PM

Details Here:

What's this film about?
In Butterfly Town, USA, we meet a community determined to protect their butterfly grove sanctuary. When the City prunes the trees in the sanctuary, activists work together to fill the gaps created in the tree canopy. This effort leads to a clash in how best to protect the Monarch Butterflies

I would love to see you there.

What Exactly is Play?

Last week I filmed a presentation at the San Francisco Library by Boston College Professor Dr. Peter Gray. He is a very dynamic speaker and has a lot of insight into this topic. Check out the video below.  His book is also fantastic.

This may be the moment to announce that I have been working on a documentary about imaginative play now for a while. More on that soon!
