i signed up about a month ago and this is the first post since then...there is mention on the jf sight that he relocated...i wonder if he is still in southern cal, does anyone know?

it would be really great if a filmmaker really could catch the "essence" of jf's style. there's a film by chel white called 'dirt' that's kind of cute and goes off in one possible sort of direction. really so much could be done if jf-style storytelling could really be caught on film. style is really the wrong word, i think. your ideas are great. surely there are fans in the film world. i wish someone would find it worth a shot.

i just came across this website on an unforgettable short film i saw several years ago at the L.A. 'Dances With Films' festival. it's nothing to do with jf, but it was very moving. it's available on dvd and i just ordered it.......i am technically challenged and don't own a dvd player (or a tv), but i still had to own it....maybe jf fans would enjoy it.


Good night America, how are you?

I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans.
I'll be gone 500 miles when the day is done.
