fighting for the worm with a strange girl
Apparently this California girl (don't remember her name) found out that we were running out of liquor and that the artist had first dibs on it, so we rassled for the last drop of alcohol... This is what to expect when you come to an opening for the cinemascapist. The mountain man and his mountain family entourage tend to cause turmoil and put on an all new show within a show.
But all in all the show and trip were both a success. Did some deals, met some cool city folk, and managed to shoot a few hollywood style cinemascapes in between all that. Below are some outtakes my brother captured during the trip. I'll try to caption them the best that I can, but some of them are new to me as I seem to have lost many portions of my memory from opening night.
a view of the crowd from the bar up in the loft area of the gallery.
the cinemascapist lounging as the last few guests are departing.
Madame Cinemascapist kindly getting me up after the show ends.
trying to figure out how or why (at 3am) my brother was trying to break in through our motel room window after the show.
arguing with a film crew that the cinemascapist work is way more important than whatever crappy B movie they were producing.
deciding on a narrative for a scene in the LA River.
and lastly an outtake from a portrait titled "the bare essentials of the cinemascapist" by my LA friend Susan "Smalldogs" Sabo.
