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.
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.
While eating Hawaiian “pupus”at Peohe’s on the Coronado ferry landing, after writing a real estate offer on the “island,” I got these poetic shots of surfers, doing yoga on their paddle boards. It has been said that photography is all about capturing the moment. These are some of my moments.
Relaxing Coronado Labor Day Cruise
After working all week marketing solar electricity for SunRun, I was invited to a great Labor Day party in Coronado, which included a ride on an electric boat across the bay. Being an owner of an all electric Nissan Leaf car, I decided to jump on even though I was still eating my froyo from the party.
Here’s a few more photos taken from the boat:
There was even a gondola guy rowing by.
Notice the two monitors: One is for when designing virtual solar systems with Google Sketchup on maps and crafting proposals, the other is for contacting clients.
