Becca, a regular here at, is not just a poet and haikuist. She is also a filmmaker. Here’s how she and her kids spent a perfectly good summer day.

Director’s Commentary:

When our family first started talking about the making of a Feechie Film, there was some heated discussion about which of us would have the privilege of running around in the yard in a loin cloth and attacking the 6-foot alligator. We’re not sure what this says about the job we’ve done as parents.

In the end, preference was given to the littlest. Why? Because even though he’s the cutest, he was going to attack the alligator no matter what. So, we caved.

That’s good cinema right there. Thanks, Becca and family.

    As I’ve said before, Becca’s kids are brilliant.  I hope to have the same sort of success someday in raising my own.

      Aww, thanks CB. Every day I get to spend with them is a treasure. They make my heart sing.

    That was great. The ADD moment was too funny.

    A very inspiring film.
    I loved Moses’s hair sticking out every which way. Feechified.

    An instant classic. If Mosie don’t win the Oscar for that, why sure as you’re born, I’ll eat my hat!

    I am a believer- this is great!  I would not show this to Geico though; it’s too good. They are the kind of civilizers who take cute small animals and commercialize the heck out of them.

    My Sis likes blowing up alligators.No disclaimer about ‘nonviolent’, though.
