The Planets from Andy Martin on Vimeo.

I liked this animation a lot. Not just for the editing and and sound effects, but the whole concept. Don’t know much about Andy Martin, but I watched a bunch of his other stop motion videos, and really liked the one called SELFIE as it truly captured the concept with humor and fun. Plus the guy draws an awesome down vest.

Sound and Chaos: The Story of BC Studio
Zachary and I shot some excellent looking footage of our friends the band, White Hills and a good amount was included in this new documentary about Martin Bisi. We even made the trailer at: :20, 1:03 and 1:08. It was nice to get an Additional Camera credit when we saw the film premiere at Anthology Film Archives back in July. What I liked most about the doc was the portrait it painted of Martin and the snapshot in time of what was a very rich period in music. Check it out if you can! Shot on two Canon 60Ds.

Casey Neistat’s Snapchat Stories

I love this guy’s work. I haven’t tried Snapchat, but my cousin is very into it and I think the idea that the video disappears is cool. But, I liked this video for a variety of reasons including the fact that he is telling the story in a very immediate way but in saving it and posting to YouTube, he is kind of running rings around the ultimate intention of the app. Here is the link to his YouTube page of this material but I am a fan of his other videos on YouTube as well and always use him as an example with my students.

I also love how he holds the iPhone up at the end to film the storeclerk. Maybe he’s onto something here….. I will definitely stay tuned.

John Waters at the New York Public Library. June 4, 2014

"I’m understood certainly by the public. I don’t feel like I’m some sort of tragic person that has never been understood. No. And I think I’m completely understood. And, um, it’s amazing to me how far I’ve gotten, to tell you the truth.That I ended up an ‘insider’, that’s the most perverse thing of all".

Shot with my iPhone 5 and edited in iMovie on my iPhone.

Six Candles in a Donut from on Vimeo.

My little man just turned six. This is raw footage from my camera that has no color correction or editing. Happy I caught the moment in his classroom surrounded by his friends. I love how is stares into the candle flames and how enthusiastically his classmates sing to him. He is a well-loved little boy!
