    Hi Jeff,

    I was looking at old photos of a wrap party for the movie “Getting Personal” formerly “Somehow Scituate”. I think you were a production assistant. I found you on Goodreads as an author. Congratulations on your career.

    • I was indeed a PA on the film – although I thought it had been renamed Lost and Found. Where can I find a picture of the shoot? And how are you?

        I don’t think I have pictures of the shoot, just the wrap party and none of them are scanned. I am okay. Detours and back on the production trail. The Massachusetts Tax Credits keep the movie business near by. I am working to finish my first feature length documentary this year, but….. I am trying to get a machine going to pursue all the documentary and feature projects I have been stewing on.

    I’ve scanned 3 photos. I believe you have my email and I can send them to you.

  3. Enjoyed your “stranded” email. It was well written and engaging. A bit too much like Castaway, but I read it nonetheless. Note: trees bark don’t grow up. A trees’s bark at 4′ at year 10 will still be at 4′ at year 100.
    Luck to you.
