Right Here ALL OVER (Occupy Wall Street)

Finally, American youth put down their electronic toys to help move our country in a positive direction. We need a revolution like the one from my generation, the ones who fought the useless war in Vietnam. We changed the world and so can today's youth.

 Golden Age--Somewhere

"Sequel to the award winning GOLDEN AGE - THE SIMULATION, 'SOMEWHERE' attempts to visualise the notion of a 'downloaded architecture'. We are in a time where much of what we do is online. The notion of the online will radically change, the notion of the computer and the home will merge. We will download parks and places to relax, have skype phone calls with simulated telepresence of our friends and family, be immersed in nanorobotic replications of any kind of objects or furnishings downloaded on credit based systems. The local becomes the global and the global becomes the local. Consumer based capitalism would change forever."

ESPN Dream On Sports Montage

This is one of the best sports montages that I have seen, covering all sports important to Americans. I like the brief view of Johnny Unitas and Cal Ripkin and many more.

Dublin's People

This is just a short video of people celebrating on the streets of Dublin, Ireland. It was the result of a workshop that the producer was attending. Dublin is really a fun city. I have been there twice.

Reverie

Who says that a good film must be 2-hours long? This is an excellent short film (3+ minutes) with really cute children playing the leading roles.

Wow, what a beautiful and well-done video of a photographer who shoots those that climb the rock faces and peaks of Yosemite. It shows what some photographers do to get their great photographs.

Buenos Aires: Las Calles de Borges

"Poets, like the blind, can see in the dark."
Jorge Luis Borges

"A little homage to the Argentinian poet Jorge Luis Borges, one of the greatest writers of all time. This video was shot in the winter of 2010 in Buenos Aires and Capilla del Señor, Argentina."

This is an artistic video of Buenos Aires and its famous poet Jorge Luis Borges. Buenos Aires is one of the few places in South America that I would like to visit.

 We Are 138

" 'You just need your surroundings and you can evolve'- Mark Ong aka SBTG, takes viewers through his creative process and roots growing up in the perceived restrictions of Singapore. Finding inspiration in the simplest of forms, SBTG creates the "138" shoe collaboration with FICE Boutique in Salt Lake City, Utah and explains how the Misfits inspiration guided the collaboration. On the surface the film purposes to expose the cerebral world of SBTG and an emerging sub-culture in Singapore, but the film becomes deeply personal as SBTG reveals how his experiences have affected his work and current mindset."

 Basement Jaxx vs. Metropole Orkest--Hey U

This one is hard to describe but is a good video. It has exotic animated animals playing the song Hey U from the group Basement Jaxx. That's what I think it is. Check it out.

Rooms

A very clever black and white video that shows a house, but uses audio to project the memories of the people who once lived in that house. This is a creative video.

I enjoyed this short video where pictures were take every few minutes during the 11-hour trip from San Francisco to Paris. I especially liked the segment that brilliantly shows the aurora borealis.

The Last Survivor Trailer

"The Last Survivor is a character-based, feature-length documentary that explores the idea of genocide in the 21st century. Following the lives of survivors of four different genocides and mass atrocities - The Holocaust, Rwanda, Darfur, and Congo - the film presents the stories of Survivors and their struggle to make sense of the tragedy by working to educate, motivate and promulgate a civic response to mass atrocity crimes. Offering real world examples of Survivors who have become powerful agents of change, The Last Survivor presents a unique opportunity to learn from the lessons and mistakes of our past in order to have lasting social impact on how we act collectively in the face of similar issues today."

 Typophile Video

This is a very creative video of type, fonts, and words. Their introduction is as follows:

"Handcrafted with love by BYU design students and faculty, for the 5th Typophile Film Festival. A visual typographic feast about the five senses, and how they contribute to and enhance our creativity. Everything in the film is real—no CG effects!"
