Wanted: New Home for the Pacific Pinball Museum

The Pacific Pinball Museum is looking for a new home, a setting where they can show more than the current fraction of the fantastic collection of games, teach kids about science, and spread pinball joy and luv.  Can you help out, even a little?

Here is their Create the Smithsonian of Pinball campaign on Indiegogo — check it out!

You can also support the PPM by coming out to the 2012 Pacific Pinball Expo, play some games, attend some talks, and see THREE of my films:

  • advance screening of Pinball Donut Girl featurette
  • preview of Wade Krause: Pinball Artist
  • The Visible Pinball Project

See you at the PPE, September 21-23!

Frank Lloyd Wright meets Pinball Donut Girl

On Sept. 22, Pinball Donut Girl will have an advance screening of the full featurette at the 2012 Pacific Pinball Expo, held at the Marin County Civic Center Exhibition Hall in San Rafael, California.

Frank Lloyd Wright, who designed the Marin Center would surely be pleased.  I mean, look at the detail on one of the buildings in the complex and tell me Lloyd Wright didn’t love pinball!

Lily, Matt and I had a great time yesterday at the Pacific Pinball Expo.  I’ll be back again today for more fun.  Tons of great games and wonderful people to meet and talk to.

The photoshoot of Jeri and Hellacopters was terrific — big thanks to Jeri, Wade and Tanio. And of course our photographer Jeff Bradley.

I’ll be posting the photos later this week.
