San Diego Film Week

I was lucky enough to go to a few classy filmmaking parties last weekend. The first one ended San Diego Film Week.

Here’s a few snaps:

This was the stage where music,comedy and the San Diego Film awards appeared.

Here’s a few ladies enjoying their 2 free drinks at the blackjack table.

Lots of San Diego Film Awards were handed out. I didn’t see most of the films so I can’t really comment on them.

I did attend the San Diego 48hr Film festival and saw a few there.My favorite was called, “Sorry To Bother You.” I don’t think I’d want participate in that festival because you have to pay them to pressure yourself and your cast & crew to finish a film in 48 hours, and besides the little trophy and admiration of your peers, the financial return seems minimal for all your expenses.  True, low or no budget films must be done within a few weeks before participants lose interest. But 48 hrs seems crazy to me.

Festivals abound around the world, online and they are a great way these days to establish yourself as a filmmaker.Lots of trophies were handed out that night like faux Oscars, but I won’t bore you with them. Anyway, the price of admission included 2 free drinks and 2 tacos. Rice and beans were $6.00 extra. Ouch! I came up with my own drink called the Rummelon which is made of rum, watermelon juice and club soda or sprite. Yum! 

Snakeoil cocktails provided the watermelon juice and mixed my original creation. Delicious!

Other than that, there was supposed to be a burlesque show but they thought children would attend so all we got were these “cigarette” girls handing out candy instead.

The next night, was an Oscar party at a fancy La Jolla Mansion for sale. Call me, Jordan Schaffner BRE#01736921 @ 619-346-9433 to make a serious offer over $10 million. 

Here’s where you enter and walk the red carpet.

There was also a ballot to guess the Ocar winners with a fairly large cash prize.

Great views all the way to the pacific.

This is the pool.

Incredible!

What a place to watch the Oscars, from your own infinity pool overlooking La Jolla Beach!

Here’s a few great 🔥 fireplace shots

Some beautiful flowers from the party.

And the Oscar goes to…”La La Land,” no, no, I mean “Moonlight.” Well, we all know that story by now.

Day of the Dead. Old Town 2016

As I understand it, the Mexican Day of the  Dead, is a holiday that lets people visit with their deceased relatives and it has a sense of humor about it. People bring their dead relatives their favorite food & drink. They are depicted doing many fun things like enjoying music and weddings. Because of it’s proximity to Mexico, Old Town San Diego celebrates the Day of the Dead every year in many of its’ shops & public squares.

Day Off @Stone Brewery

I had a day off on Tuesday  so we went to world famous Stone Brewery in Escondido, CA which is located at Citracado Parkway, a beautiful citrusy avocado street name.  It’s a very unique place where they not only brew many different kinds of beer, but have a Stone Brewery Restaurant, and a beautiful place to walk where you can see many synthetic natural scenes like the ones shown below. It’s kind of like Busch Gardens here in San Diego or a beer Disneyland.   It’s a tad on the odd side though because everywhere you look you see their company symbol of the devil.  I asked one of the waiters if the place was cursed. He said “No, but the symbol is there to put a curse on their competitor’s bad beer.  I tried a dark beer sampler, and it was really geither, except for the icky mint curry on the side and most of the food was organic. The apple cheese platter was amazing! I’ve never had a tastier apple, probably because it was organic too.   The prices were kind of high though.

Actually, the devil like symbol may not be evil after all. Perhaps the owners of this billion dollar facility were pagans.   It seemed that they worshipped the beautiful nature all around them and Pan, a pagan symbol of a man with wings and a tail, was a nature god who was worshipped before he was demonized by Christianity. Lots of stone symbols here too. My advice to you, “Everybody Must Get Stoned.”at the Stone Brewery.
