Grant Hamilton and me, relaxing after a few hours of filming my minor role in TimeZero in March of 2010.

I think the votes were high-fives and unanimous
The house was packed and enthusiastic. Grant Hamilton, proved he is indeed a Renaissance Man, with a full-length documentary filmed from coast to coast in the USA and in Holland and Austria. It became obvious that it must have been a herculean task to do it all, as he did, with great direction and cinematography.
With some good luck TimeZero should make its way to a cinema near you.
Grant Hamilton designed this poster as well. Click on it to enlarge it. It's a fabulous design job and immediately obvious to me that he is an outstanding designer as well as all of the above. I cautioned him however to keep his day job as designers by and large are an impoverished lot in today's economy.
We spent seven hours discussing what it was like in the early days of Polaroid going all the way back to 1955 and when Stan Calderwood and I began the graphic identity program that is documented here as The Branding of Polaroid.
Now I have an idea how much a detailed filmed interview can fry the brain of the interviewee and I'm relying on his applying more of his impressive skills to editing my scattered thoughts. For more about Grant and his work, please click on the links below.
