Give Me the Barrel!

This is an article that I wrote for Oz Magazine, published by Gary and Tia Powell of Oz Publishing. I also created the artwork and layout for this article.

In this issue I dusted off a story from one of my blog entries from several years ago about the time that I learned the importance of communication on film sets. Here’s an excerpt:

“From my vantage point I could see the boys sloshing around in the current, and I suddenly realized that Salvator was operating with old information. I could tell that he still thought that he would be getting the barrel because he started glaring in my direction, obviously wondering why I’d missed my cue. I couldn’t very well yell at him that they’d told me not to send it, partly because there was probably a microphone on the bank, but mostly because they couldn’t possibly hear me over the sound of the churning water and bobbing turtle heads. So I did the only logical thing a person in my situation could do: I pointedly began to ignore him."
