"PROBABLY THE WORST THING I EVER DID"

"I hate to go out to dinner, period! I had a million excuses.
The food's no good. The food's good, but over-priced. The
food's o.k., but the place is too far. The food and music are
lousy. The service is horrible. Last week I ran out of excuses."

about the disabled, . so this
film stressed their abilities
— not disabilities," Glaser
said.
His latest film, Bombing
LA, is an inside look at the
graffiti culture of Los
Angeles.
"Last year, $40 million
was spent on graffiti
removal in California. It's a
big problem out here,"
Glaser said. "I befriended
some graffiti writers, went
with them on various bomb-
ing missions, and they ex-
plained how and why they do
it."
Glaser's film shows the
graffiti writers in action,
hopping fences, stealing
paint and "the whole range
of misdemeanors that they
do to leave their mark in
society."
Glaser said that in many
ways he finds these people to
be more interesting than
Hollywood celebrities.
There's an element of
danger, he admitted, and
that's why he presents them
in their own words.
"I have a certain amount
of trust in them. None of the
groups I've filmed has felt
misrepresented or bitter
about my presentations."
Before Glaser starts film-
ing, he tells the groups who
he is, hangs out, talks with
them and observes.
"Then I tell them, 'Okay,
I'm going to come back with
my camera,' but I never
shoot anyone who doesn't

want to be in my film. And I
think I elicit a certain
amount of trust in them."
Footage from Bombing LA.
recently was shown on "The
Today Show," and Deborah
Norville did a live interview
with a graffiti writer from
Los Angeles — all arranged
by Glaser who served as field
producer on the segment.
All of Glaser's films are on

lege universities and
libraries throughout the
United States.
"It's the educational
market where most of my
work is found, and I get some
satisfaction out of knowing
that my films are shown in
the classroom," he said.
Glaser also visits local col-
leges like the University of
Southern California, the
University of California at
Los Angeles and Loyola of
Marymount and lectures on
making social-issue docu-
mentaries.
A graduate from Detroit's
Henry Ford High School in
1968, Glaser has done some
preliminary research, with
