Happy Saturday, everyone! Remember Charlie Chaplin, his smile, his unforgettable characters, and his domination of Hollywood and the developing movie era?

The Artist is Prescient June 29, 2017

Thoughtful Thursday today, and we here have been busy on various projects, including promoting our new film, “F For Franco.” Do check out our FB Page of the same name.

If art can be theoretically anything these days, how can we ever hope to differentiate it from just “stuff”? How can we tell what could be important to our society to what’s distinctly ephemeral? In this clever short, the Art Critic Francisco goes on a night talk show to discuss the unveiling of an art project decades in the making, and the state of art today. Relax and enjoy!

Art & Authenticity May 12, 2017

It’s Fearless Friday! We’re very excited to announce that in a few weeks, our film, “F For Franco”, will have a wide online release! Look for more extra material, etc. in the next few days/weeks/months! Visit our FFF Facebook Page, as well! Today, Francisco ponders aloud how people react when finding out a beloved car, painting, or object is not, in fact, “real.” What about people – finding out they are not who you thought they were? What if the person or persons were manipulating their identities? What is that? That’s “F For Franco”! Enjoy your weekend!

Happy Saturday!

SNL, ATCQ, Redux November 13, 2016

Hello! With the US election so close behind us, it was only natural that Saturday’s Saturday Night Live show dealt with the election’s outcome in various ways. The program also featured the musical guest A Tribe Called Quest. The band performed with a tribute to late Tribe member Phife Dawg, who passed away earlier this year. Francisco had already created his own tribute to Phife and ATCQ, which I’m presenting to you again now. Please enjoy!
