This is central San Anselmo, in Marin County, California, north of San Francisco.
I came here this morning to visit Doug Nichol, who is finishing a film about many dimensions of typewriters. As currently planned, it will culminate with the typewriter insurgency manifesto and the rise of the typewritten revolution.
I took my father's Smith-Corona Clipper to this coffeeshop where Doug filmed me doing some work on my book.
We also filmed some of the correspondence I've received from insurgents. On top is the latest communiqué, received just before I left Cincinnati. Thank you, Agent R.! Be steadfast!
In Doug Nichol's office, I was impressed by this video-editing keyboard, as well as other great software and hardware ...
... especially this hardware.
Doug has become a true typewriter lover, user, and collector since he began the film. Here's a Standard Folding and a Lambert that he found in Paris.
The complexities of the film are laid out on this bulletin board. I got a peek at many scenes. There's a lot of good material, from the historical to the personal, from the hilarious to the sad to the mysterious. This is going to be one fantastic movie.
