Rules and Regulations

Martin McClellan is a designer and writer living in Seattle. He can't remember a time when he didn't love movies. When he was in elementary school he begged his father, a minister, to take him to see this new film Apocalypse Now. He snuck across the street to the neighbors to watch films on the Z Channel whenever he could, occasionally getting in trouble for watching films he really shouldn't have. You can find out more about Martin at his website.
