Monday chills and thrills: “Within” with Peter Bean

Last Thursday was personally momentous for me because I finished the first draft of The Rêves, which I’ve been serializing here, and am very happy with how it turned out. Fifty-eight chapters, nearly 150,000 words, and an incredibly diverse cast of characters. I like to describe it as “Magical realism meets hard SciFi with a goth/romantic lit injection.”

But between that and working tons of overtime because I work in Medicare Insurance by day and it’s our version of tax season, I’ve started throwing the spotlight to one of my talented friends on Mondays, with the first installment on Zach Timson last week.

This week’s guest is someone regular readers of my site have already met, Peter Bean, who made his debut here guest-blogging right before everything shut down in March. He is a ridiculously talented filmmaker and editor (hire him!), as well as one of the nicest, down-to-earth people I know.

He’s also made me much more environmentally conscious purely by example, and I want to be him when I grow up.

He’s made some pretty amazing short features, but since we’re just past Halloween — and because this one is an amazing example of what a crew of two can accomplish in a stairwell in San Francisco — I’m sharing Within, in which Peter is also the lead, proving that yes, he can act, too.

You can see some of his other films at his company’s, Chispa Productions, Youtube Channel. They’re all worth a look or two.
