The Cannes Film Festival. Festival de Cannes. A sleepy little town on the Med goes all out sparkly glam for two weeks every May for the biggest, most important, most exclusive film festival in the world. And you’ll hear about it for the next ten days. Premieres, premiere parties, film deals, movie stars. All on the French Riviera.

An animated short I worked on – I voiced the only the only character in - will make its European premiere at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival! That short, Tailypo, is an African-American folk tale that is animated with stop motion puppets. It’s as gorgeous as it is frightening. The screening intends to generate interest from other international festivals. Let’s all wish it the best as it heads out fro the Croisette!

As you know from the Cannes Diary, I’ve been to the Cannes Film Festival before when I was a producer shooting at the festival. Calling that experience crazy would be an insult to crazies everywhere. So I wrote a book about it all. Cannes: TAKE NO PRISONERS a novella. This book is fiction. Any similarities to any real people or real situations is accidental and coincidental. As we do. For some reason the term roman รก clef comes to mind…

Watch the trailer now, it’s a fun-filled postmodern expressionist romp!

Cannes: TAKE NO PRISONERS a novella is available now on Amazon Kindle! Don’t have a kindle? The Kindle app is available for iphone, ipad, droid, plus on your desktop or laptop with the Kindle app for Mac or PC! Best part? It’s only $3.99 (for a limited time)!

Perfect for beach reading, plane reading, train reading, long car trips or maybe just read it out loud to your lover…
