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!

Orson On The Margins May 6, 2017

Happy Birthday, Orson Welles! Here, to commemorate his birthday, we offer a brief bit of news regarding Orson’s papers, and remember a few of his obscure but memorable works and appearances, from a recording where Francisco pondered some media history coinciding with Orson’s later life. Happy Saturday!

Music, From the Skies November 12, 2016

Hello, and how are you today? As the weekend approaches, we have a treat for you – Francisco sharing some guitar music while we also enjoy a glimpse of a foreign city in the skies (a nod to the original Star Trek). If so inspired, make some music of your own!

Visual Verse April 26, 2016

Hello, and welcome to a later edition of Media Monday on Tuesday! Not all stories are narratives, and not all narratives are stories (think of dreams, for example).  In this engrossing work by Francisco, can you tell which kind it is? Travel down the rabbit hole and offer an interpretation for this rich procession of images. It’s all there.

Happy New Year 2016 January 1, 2016

Hello Everyone! As 2015 drew to a close, we reflected on what had happened recently as we looked forward to the promise of new experiences for the year which has just begun. Some of our experiences included moving into a new building in LA, traveling to MN to speak about film and art at Winona State University, beginning principal photography on an amazing new project on Elmyr de Hory with Mark Forgy, and nearly finishing the filming for our movie on jazz legend Arturo Sandoval. We released a second album of Francisco’s music, Groove Morphisms, and will soon release a third. There’s so much to be grateful for, and so much to look forward to! Here is a short video of some of the adventures from the past couple of years as we move into the New Year. May you enjoy today and every day of 2016!

In A New York Minute (or 12) May 25, 2015

Good Monday Morning! Today, we in the U.S. observe Memorial Day, honoring those who have served our country. It is a day full of retail sales, cookouts, and the start of summer (if not necessarily by the calendar). It’s a day of stories and shared memories of days gone by as we prepare for the summer ahead of us. In today’s post, Francisco takes on a quick trip back to New York City in the 1970’s, and shares two of his adventures growing up in that time period. Have a wonderful day!

“Stumbler”-ing on our journey into Media Monday May 18, 2015

Hello! It’s Media Monday proper, and it’s time for some more music from Francisco, called “Stumbler.” This video was created from footage shot on both coasts (nobody actually stumbles,to be clear, and I think you’ll enjoy the walk down Memory Lane, because yes – we found it! Have a wonderful day.

Freebie Friday Foto May 15, 2015

Hello! Foto is spelled incorrectly, I know, but I could not resist the alliteration. I could go Phreebie Phriday Photo. 🙂 Here I am (it’s Adrienne) early this morning after spending some hours editing. My question – is it one selfie, or does it go on ad infinitum?
