California Typewriter is a feature length documentary by filmmaker Doug Nichol which revolves around the real-life, family owned typewriter repair shop, California Typewriter, in Berkeley, California.  
Three main stories, past, present, and future, are represented, respectively, by Martin Howard (antique typewriter collector), the repair shop, and me, the guy who destroys typewriters.

The stories are punctuated by the musings and machinations of other typewriter enthusiasts including Tom Hanks, Sam Shepard, John Mayer, David McCullough, Mason Williams, San Francisco poet Silvi Alcivar, and the Boston Typewriter Orchestra. 

It took Doug a little over 5 years to make the film. It's been a thrill to be involved with this project.

California Typewriter is available for download in the iTunes Store for rent or for sale.
