21 Thrift Stores in 5 Cities

16 Dec

I’ve been scouring western Oregon to costume PROF TOM FOOLERY SAVES THE PLANET (#tomfoolery) and hit nearly 2 dozen thrift stores.

Right now the most difficult costume pieces to find are long jackets and hats.

The budget for costumes is also much higher than anticipated – already over $500.

Contributions through PayPal to are greatly appreciated to defray these higher costume costs.



Many Worthwhile Causes to Support

29 Nov

This Tuesday is a national day of donating to social causes that we value, to people who do good things in the world that we can’t personally do, and to people who need a boost.

Many of us contribute to the world as much as we can through the year, not only on a designated day.

My mentor, Steve Reinisch, recommended an inspiring book a few years ago, The Soul of Money written by Lynne Twist.  One of the most powerful messages I heard from the book is that each of us has resources to share with each other regardless of our economic situation.

In my own life I recognize that by volunteering my skills to create short films and public service announcements I can offer more to my community than spending an afternoon stuffing envelopes for a charity or slipping $20 in an offering plate.

The contributions you make to my feature films make it possible for me to have the equipment and time to create these social media videos for others. Your support for me resulted in

And of course there are all those Tub Talks, which in my own way call attention to some of life’s ironies that I hope lightens your day.

This time of year is crucial for gathering the resources to make my next feature film PROF. TOM FOOLERY SAVES THE PLANET. When you help me make this film you reap both the reward of receiving a fun and happy movie and enabling me to do good work for the community throughout the year.

It’s a good feeling to know exactly what your money is doing.

Please contribute using your bankcard through PayPal to

Thank you.

Because Love Can Save the World

Droning on About Movies – Paul’s Tub Talk – October 25

24 Oct

It used to be an indie film had to prove it was a ‘real’ movie by including a crane shot at the beginning (or the end) with the camera lifting high above the street.  And then we were supposed to use these Steadicams and run around everywhere, popping through doorways, skipping down stairs and jumping into the back of a speeding car.

But now we have to put in these aerial drone shots, sweeping over the top of the 10,000ft mountain top and dropping down to the valley below to zoom into the front door of our hero’s house as he picks up the morning paper.

Well I say ‘Poo’ to that.

The only person who needs to see the top of my head is my barber.

YouTube is all high tech these days and so of course, they want a trailer on my YouTube channel. I had a trailer on there, which was sort of wishy-washy hippy dippy.
