After all the remains were dissolved and gone and the streets were once again clean and clear, it might look a bit like this here:

Before I moved to San Francisco, I had a dirty rumor that it was difficult to shoot in San Francisco. After I moved to this jewel of a city, I saw this short promo. The proof is in the pudding:
"Fog is cool" I said to myself as I stumbled in from a weekend nosh of idiosyncratic food and drink. Diverse places and people in a city nestling with nature. It sure isn't NYC -- and that's a good thing. I took it as an omen that this video popped up as I thought of my wife soon joining me here in my new home. Change is a wonderful thing, particularly positive change and the joy of having someone to share it with.
How great would it be if San Francisco was the Indie Film Hub, and this time instead of a group of aspiring artists and entrepreneurs trying to make it, it emerged as a true community that knew that it had to work together, amassing and learning from mistakes, forever aiming to make deeply resonate work, regardless of individual authorship, work that celebrates the expansive aspects of life today, doesn't shy away from complexity or lack of comfort, and is based on exploration far more than declaration. Ah, a person can dream....
