Stupid MTV canceled Taquita & Kaui after only four episodes! Gabriel's episode, which was guaranteed to have been the funniest thing you had ever seen, never even aired! There is no justice in this world!

February 27, 2007
Gabriel is working on this great new reality show called Taquita & Kaui, it is the best, funniest show ever in the history of reality television. Gabriel's episode is the fifth. It premieres April 2nd. Be sure to tune in.

With the help of fantabulous editor Patrick Nelson Barnes, there is now a rough cut of The Lost Coast. Perfect time to put it down for a while and relax.

Principal photography has been completed on The Lost Coast. Shot almost all outside, in the cold, during the rainiest March in history. Now it's time for the long and arduous post-production process. Weeee.

March 26, 2006
Gabriel is very prominently featured in today's New York Times. Look at the clipping here.

Big time principle photography has begun on The Lost Coast. Hoping for good weather. Looks like it's going to be a dry year.

Fleming went to Sundance to tag along with the Old Joy team. It was very cold there. Fleming bought a down jacket just for the occasion. He reports that Sundance was fun, though he didn't see many celebrities because everyone was so bundled up that you couldn't tell who was who. He did see Dennis Hopper, however, and nearly got a picture of himself arguing with Corey Feldman.
Old Joy was met with much critical praise at the festival, and is a truly wonderful film. You should see it if you get the chance.

December 10, 2005
Old Joy, the film Gabriel worked on in June, will be showing at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival. Gabriel will be going to see if the festival is as horrifying as everyone says.

November 1, 2005
Halloween night was the first shooting day of Gabriel's new feature film, The Lost Coast, starring Ian Scott McGregor, Lucas Alifano, Lindsay Benner, and Chris Yule, cinematography by Nils Kenaston. Production is set to resume full force in San Francisco this January.

October 27, 2005
Fleming finished editing an episode of MTV's Making the Band, hosted by Sean "Diddy" Combs (or "Puff," as employees call him), which aired on Oct. 27, and subsequently in endless rotation, as is the way of basic cable programming. Gabriel butchered a song from one of his favorite bands, Low, in the episode, and now regrets it. Apologies to the band. (Suckers.)

July 10, 2005
Gabriel just returned from Portland, helping out on Kelly Reichardt's new film, Old Joy, starring Daniel London (Minority Report, Rent) and musician Will Oldham (aka Bonnie "Prince" Billy, aka Palace Brothers), shot by Pete Sillen (co-dir. Benjamin Smoke), and executive produced by Todd Haynes (dir. Far From Heaven, Safe). (Enough name dropping for you?) Gabriel did sound on the picture, a last-minute replacement for some Portland sound guy who actually wanted to get paid. It was two weeks out in the rainy Oregon forests, evading rednecks with shotguns and territorial hippies. Good times had by all.

April 5, 2005
Fleming did another stint editing America's Next Top Model. Season four now, he cut the eighth episode, in which Kahlen's friend from home dies, and in a creepy coincidence, Kahlen has to do a photo shoot at the bottom of grave. Yay reality television!

January 10, 2005
Gabriel spent several months editing one of the most controversial reality shows ever: Fox's Who's Your Daddy? Here's the concept: take a young woman adopted at birth who has never met her biological father. If she can pick her dad out of eight men, seven of whom are pretending to be her father, she wins $100,000. If she picks one of the impostors, he wins the money. Fantastic! The announcement of the show was met with widespread outrage and mocking. The premiere of the show was met with incredibly low ratings. So even though six episodes were produced, only one was aired. Oh well. Fleming still got paid.

June 7, 2004
Fleming is working as an editor on the hit reality show America's Next Top Model, season three, coming to UPN this Fall, Wednesday nights at 9PM. Currently Fleming is editing the second half of the first episode, airing September 22, 2004. Unfortunately, Fleming cannot reveal any more than that, as doing so will cause him to owe UPN five million dollars, as per the terms of the confidentiality agreement.

January 10, 2004
Gabriel has moved to Los Angeles. I know, I know. Don't get me started.

November 6, 2003
Gabriel just finished producing and co-directing the super-16mm feature film My Movie Girl, written by, directed, and staring Adam Bronstein, and shot by Nils Kenaston. After two months of pre-production and 19 exhausting days of production, Gabriel is resting, getting it all together for the post-production process. A final cut of the film should be ready by summer 2004, barring unforeseen floods and/or other disasters. The film featured several performers who have previously appeared in Fleming's films, including Peter Nachtrieb and Ian McConnel.

September 29, 2003
Fleming appeared on the live television talk show Movie Close-Up discussing the making of One Thousand Years with host Bonnie Steiger. Thousands of San Franciscans flipped by the channel 29 show on their way to Bravo, the Food Network, or possibly the TBS Superstation.

March 10, 2003
Gabriel returns from Asia after eleven months. What happened? How did it turn into such a long trip? Fleming reports "I don't know how it turned into such a long trip." He spent time in such countries as Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, China, and Tibet. And five days Malasia. And two hours in the Tokyo airport. And two minutes and thirty seconds (he timed it) in Myanmar. Eventually he settled in an apartment in Bangkok to continue writing his screenplay, soon to be produced.

April 10, 2002
Gabriel is going to Asia.

Ack! One Thousand Years will be playing at the deadCENTER Film Festival in Edmond, OK, on June 8. The fourth festival in the Texas-Oklahoma region. This is very, very strange. As an added bonus, One Thousand Years is nominated in the best-feature category, a prestige that includes a sumptuous celebratory dinner (hosted by the mayor of Edmond) in a lovely restaurant which Fleming will not be able to attend because it's all the way over in Oklahoma and he's out of money.

April 2, 2002
One Thousand Years will be playing at the Dallas Video Festival on May 17. This makes the third festival in the Texas-Oklahoma region. There must be some sort of weird chemistry going on. Fleming is particularly honored to be part of the Dallas Video Festival, as it's one of the nation's foremost forums for video art. Thus, the divide between the film world and the video world has been bridged.

March 27, 2002
One Thousand Years will be playing at the Bare Bones Festival in Muskogee, Oklahoma this April. Unfortunately, due to financial constraints, Fleming will not be able to attend this obviously super festival.

March 20, 2002
One Thousand Years enjoyed three successful screenings at the SXSW Festival in Austin, TX. Gabriel attended many exhausting parties and hob-knobbed with the likes of documentary pioneer Albert Maysles and exploitation-picture pioneer Lloyd Kaufman. Fleming was seen on local television saying "awards are important because they get you a better chance at selling your film."

Feb 16, 2002
One Thousand Years played at the Victoria Independent Film and Video Festival of Victoria, Canada. Gabriel was present at the event, where he was seen on local television saying "my advice to budding filmmakers is to keep working, and write a lot." He spent two nights in a hotel room where the bathroom was bigger than his apartment (the toilet had a telephone and a TV).

More One Thousand Years updates here.
