Merry Christmas! If you’re looking for something festive to watch online today, check out “A California Christmas” on Netflix. In the film’s credits you’ll see that the cinematography was done by Brad Rushing, the 94th dinner interviewee.
I met Brad, who lives in Los Angeles, when he was on a trip to DC in September 2016. We had a fun vegan dinner at Fare Well where he told me about a long and successful career in charge of photography for movies, music videos, commercials, and more. He won an MTV Video Music Award for his work on the video for the Moby song “We Are All Made Of Stars;” has worked with other stars such as Britney Spears and Nelly; and he shared stories of days filming at the Playboy Mansion and hanging out on set with well-known actors.
And here’s the plot summary from for “A California Christmas,” taken from IMDB: “With his carefree lifestyle on the line, a wealthy charmer poses as a ranch hand to get a hardworking farmer to sell her family’s land before Christmas.”
