The documentary, "Siren Song: A Celebration of the Life and Works of Dr. Stanley Krippner" is now available from FireCat! Press ( for only $10.00. It spans Krippner's days of psychological research from his LSD and Dream work at the Maimonides Research Laboratory in NY, through his work with indigenous cultures. It also explores his great experiment with the Grateful Dead, as told by Dr. Krippner, Mickey Hart, and others.


A documentary about the only woman ever elected Chairman (Chief), of the Seminole Indian Tribe is also still alive and in need of financial support. Originally of the Tiger family, Betty Mae Jumper made her life's work the care and nurturing of the Seminole Tribe in Florida. In doing so, she changed Seminole history from poverty to abundance; something that is still missing in the lives of many other Indigenous tribes. Funding for this worthy project is actively sought from anyone who would like to see an amazing story of an amazing woman. Contact:

Amelia island is a filmmakers fantasy....


Only minutes from a major airport;

The permitting process is easy to access;

Accommodations are top notch, from modest B&Bs, to a Ritz Carlton on the beach;

and where an entire community of seasoned extras awaits your call--on-time and ready to role.  


Amelia Island is a magical place who also knows her stuff...


Not to be outdone by some better known movie making places,

she recently staged an extras call that was second to none.


Amelia Island never gets left on the cutting room floor...  


Her deep, dark forests and Everglades style marshes will capture your imagination.

Her home-town celebrations and old gothic churches will make you proud.


Amelia defines "sexy with soul". She will romance you into remembering her every day of your life.
