Rest in Peace Mr. Barbera

Cartoon Legend Joseph Barbera passed yesterday at the age of 95. It was my good fortune to meet both Mr. Barbera and Mr. Hanna while doing a cartoon for their studio in the nineties.
On one of my frequent visits to the old Hanna-Barbera Studio complex I was able to introduce my father to Joseph, (Both Italian and only a year apart in age they got along great.) it remains one of my fondest memories.
Mr. Barbera's office was filled with memorabilia, but as an obviously devout Catholic, he was most proud of those which commemorated his audience with the Pope.
Thank you Mr. Barbera for all the wonderful smiles.

Michael Schorr's Schultze Gets The Blues on Showtime and a Full Plate

Just saw Michael Schorr's brilliantly written and directed story about the rebirth of artistic passion: Schultze Gets the Blues.
Highly recommended. It's playing all month on Showtime

PS: Sorry for the paucity of posts this month. But my plate has been very full.

Paul Parducci's Next Movie Project Update # 5

It had to happen...
I have begun shooting my next film.
(I've moved my recently completed script onto the shelf for the time being and decided to pursue another idea instead.)
At the end of the day this decision was one of pure instinct. In a strange way I think the script I just wrote prepared me for this project.
I am working in a whole new way as well.
I hate to be so cryptic. But if I could explain it all here, there would be no reason to make a movie.
Thanks for checking in.
