Late Holiday Greetings

Season Greetings! (little late)

Last a couple days, I halted all my work and managing all my contacts and sent out Christmas greetings.

It may be just a ritual.
Some people hate season greetings.

I am one of those who don't really follow the custom.

But as I go through my e-mails, and letters, the memory of that particular person comes and goes.

Sometime, we did something crazy, fun or painful.

But I realized that chain of these encounters made me who I am.

I was just a guy who was just dreaming. Now I am stepping forward. Thank you for all of you who support me this year and the past years.

Season Greetings from Christmas Tree Katz.

Eric Byler’s "Tre" - my sound work will be released in select Theaters for the first time!

I think this is my first film that is going to be theatrically released!! I did sound editing on this.
I would like to announce Eric Byler's new film is coming to LA. Here is his message.

---------- BEGIN FORWARDED MESSAGE ----------

When actor Michael Idemoto first read the script for Charlotte Sometimes he thought the green light was a reference to The Great Gatspy. Actually, I never read The Great Gatspy and the reference to a green light was simply a description of the house where I planned to shoot Charlotte Sometimes -- the next door neighbor had a green light with a light-sensor that would go on any time somebody walked by.

In putting together the production team for TRE, we brought back cinematographer Robert Humphreys from Charlotte Sometimes. He smiled when he said he was thinking of putting green gels in the outdoor lamps. "Why not?" I said. I might like the feel of the green light better in TRE than Charlotte Sometimes. But then again, I haven't seen Charlotte Sometimes in ages. Maybe we should do a double feature somewhere.

TRE will open at Laemlle's Sunset 5 on Feb. 1st in Los Angeles. Other cities will be added soon.
