SHOWDOWN at SHINAGAWA Will Be Published in a Few Weeks



Tales of Filming from Bombay to Brazil

Introduction by Larry Habegger

My new book—SHOWDOWN at SHINAGAWA: Tales of Filming from Bombay to Brazilwill be published in just a few short weeks. I have received the first test copies and expect the book to be on sale everywhere in early November.

SHOWDOWN at SHINAGAWA tells 18 true tales of my long career working on film shoots across the U.S. and all around the world—Japan, India, China, Uganda, the Philippines, New Zealand, France, Singapore, England, Taiwan, Mexico, and Brazil.

SHOWDOWN at SHINAGAWA is funny and poignant, populated with a real-life cast of characters who add serious, silly, and sardonic perspective to our adventures shooting on the road. We overcome numbing jetlag, deal with cultural obstacles, and sometimes are rewarded for our efforts with a deep satisfaction. And … every day is different!

Includes 21 pages of color photos.
