A 90 minute film is an assemblage of 90 one minute scenes,
this is the art of movie making.

The following short sequences, or scenes, will be stitched together by narration
to create longer projects: 24, 45, and 90 minute films. As the sequences –
scenes are finished they will be posted here for review. Currently,
these video clips are part of Good Morning Álamos Sonora México,
a three DVD set that looks at Álamos in the winter, spring and summer.

Let us start with an introduction to a Short History of Álamos, Sonora, Mexico.
“Here is something Special”, Spanish explorer Vasquez de Coronado noted
in 1540 as he headed north, passing by tall white rocks on Alamos de Sierra.
This is the opening chapter to “A Short History of Álamos” written,
filmed and edited by Anders Tomlinson. Narrated by Bruce Miles. Soundtrack
by AtomicSonics and Estudiantina de Alamos. To see more history visit

Buckle-up as we take a super fast car ride through Alamos on a grey winter day.
Driving Across Álamos on an overcast December day starts at La Puerta
Roja Inn. We head east and circle the Plaza de Las Armas before heading
to the Panteon – Cemetery. We head back to La Puerta Roja exploring
different routes. The best way to travel is walking.

An occasional summer storm floods three arroyos
in Álamos with mountain runoff.

The rainy season arrives on a cannonade of lightning as surrounding
hills turn to jungle and children of all ages, cooled and cleansed
by spirited showers, dance on glistening streets…
Summer is the rainy season. Occasional tropical storms, remnant of hurricanes,
come in from the Sea of Cortez to the west. This is the morning after a
storm hit the region hard the previous evening. To see more of the rainy
season visit Summer videos.
