Tony Calder’s work with #TheBeatles, #MarianneFaithfull, and the #RollingStones made for a storied career. I had the pleasure of working with him while directing a movie in London a few years ago. The photo is from one of our working lunches.

Thank you for your kindness, Tony, and our meaningful conversations.


10 Billion: What’s On Your Plate – US Premiere at Santa Barbara International Film Fest

February 12, 2016

On Thursday, February 4, we premiered 10 Billion: What’s on Your Plate? The movie, directed by Valentin Thurn of Cologne, Germany, attempts to answer the question: how will we feed the 10 billion people estimated to inhabit the earth in the year 2050.

As the only member of the production living in theĀ  US, I was asked to represent the movie and participate in the post screening Q&A. We had an excellent turn out of about 200 attendees. That night it was the red carpet and a salute to Johnny Depp. Among those in attendance: Oprah Winfrey, Jeff Bridges, and Leonard Maltin leading the Q&A with Depp. Check out the photos on Getty Images.
