California calling/FREE T-shirt

I arrived at LAX last night and drove down to San Diego where Winter was sleeping in his car near a brand new Starbucks so he could be their first customer at 5AM. Today it's a San Diego Starbucks assault and then up to Santa Barbara for the speech tonight. First one to say this special code word to me at the speech gets a free STARBUCKINGMOVIE.COM t-shirt. The code word is... "fruitcake". See you there.

This map shows you how to find Franciso Torres.

Here is a satellite image of Francisco Torres.

As I suspected, tickets are free and there are no reservations. No word on how many people the Linda Vista room will hold.

STARBUCKING coming to Southern California

It's definite. Starbucking resumes shooting in Southern California around Memorial Day weekend which is the last weekend in May. Hear Winter's story from the horses mouth when he speaks at the University of California Santa Barbara on Friday May 27th. You'll also get a sneak peak at some scenes from STARBUCKING the documentary. Details on how you can attend will be posted as soon as I have them. In my experience, these things are open to the public and free to all comers, but I can't guarantee this.

STARBUCKING contacted by Hollywood bigboys!

Yesterday I got an email from a guy with a major Hollywood production house. He wanted to talk to me on the phone so I set up a time. He was enthusiastic about STARBUCKING and told me how his company could provide lots of services like make cinema prints of the movie and distribute to 1000's of cinemas around the country. Sounds great! I was explaining some things about the project to the guy and he realized I wasn't employed by or associated with Starbucks Coffee. Once he learned that I didn't have Starbucks Corporate $$$ backing me, he quickly lost interest, wished me luck, and hung up.

For now then, faithful reader, STARBUCKING remains an independent masterpiece backed by my own pocketbook, vision, and independent spirit. I wouldn't want it any other way!

Starbucking Blog

Watch this blog for updates on the production of Starbucking the documentary. Looks like shooting will take up in Santa Barbara, California around the weekend of Memorial day at the end of May. Winter has been invited to speak at University of California Santa Barbara. You should be able to see a 5 to 10 minute sneak peak of the Starbucking during his presentation! He will also be starbucking all over Southern California and the cameras will be following him.
