TJ Unloads Pinbot at Washboard V in Alameda at 6 am
TJ Beyer was dubbed the”pinball ninja” by our director Don Starnes. Always close by, but never in the frame, TJ wrangled games like wind in the night. His AFM and other games were huge for the film.
We turned around and TJ had rigged remote controls for AFM

darn fine loft, too!
