These films in FILM INK were made some 35 years ago while living on the MARINA PENINSULA.

They were made as exercises in fun and to say something from whimsy to tragedy.

All people in the films were friends and relatives--from my neighbors to my two sons to my beloved "CHARLIE".

It is not the quality of the films that remain but their memories frozen in tiime.

I want to thank my older son, MARCO, for engineering these films onto our website.

I hope that anyone who views them enjoys them in the spirit in which they were made.


Note: please wait for the videos to become visible.
