95ers - The Creative Spark

Regular visitors to BlogDogIt know that I am perhaps the worlds biggest fan of Thomas Durham and his indie film project 95ers. I just got word of a new documentary by Lynda.com about the making of this masterpiece (via an email from 95ers Universe.) I share with you their introduction below:

Greetings time travelers!  We are saving the world from timespace paradoxes and doing our bit to support artists and storytellers everywhere!  One of the mighty pulsars in the creative community, Lynda.com, heard about the 95ers story and descended on producer/director Tom Durham’s house to film a documentary on the topic…

So, here it is:

Please share this with sci-fi fans, struggling artists, and normal humans everywhere.  Tom tried to get them to put more in about the awesomeness of the collaborators on the project, but Lynda was razor focused on Tom’s own goofiness.  It’s a huge honor to be featured in this video series, so many thanks to everyone who part of this.

Tom Durham didn't start out naïve or inexperienced. As the head of a media department responsible for creating commercial advertisements and other videos, he had legitimate production skills. He was also ready and willing to devote all his waking time and money to a side project.

But into his fifth year of making his first feature-length movie, 95ers, Tom realized he might be in over his head. This sci-fi epic required a full crew, not to mention elaborate sets, miniatures, and intense visual effects and compositing work.

Just when it seemed like he might never be able to release a complete version of the movie, he turned to Kickstarter. There he found an unexpected outpouring of financial support and an entirely new audience for his film.

Listen to Tom tell his story and see exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from 95ers in this installment of The Creative Spark.

Take a Walk with Joel Meyerowitz

Joel Meyerowitz - By Hans Peter SchaeferOftentimes I come across something on the internet that draws me in and sends me on a grand adventure. Once again I have only my fondness for Vintage Everyday to thank for today's excursion. It was the image ["A Girl on a Scooter"(New York City, 1965)] that lead to my entering the name "Joel Meyerowitz" into the search engine.

I first chose to consume a video commentary by Joel (embeded below.) I enjoyed his insights on human nature. This lead to an image search for more of his works. I collected several images from random sites around the internet and present them here in BlogDogIt Slide Show fashion. The source pages for these images are in the list of links at the bottom of this post. Pay them a visit and see where they lead you. Take a walk with Meyerowitz and see the streets.

Enjoy!

Giving - 3 Minutes for Goodness Sake

Advertising As Film:
ทรูมูฟ เอช " การให้ คือการสื่อสารที่ดีที่สุด "
TrueMove H : Giving

Watch the Thai Commercial That Has Half the World Sobbing Uncontrollably Can you handle it?

by Rebecca Cullers

...

With almost 6 million hits in just a few days, the ad is getting lots of press. The tagline is, "Giving is the best communication." It's not entirely clear (at least in the ad) how that relates to a mobile company, but frankly, it doesn't need to. The buzz (and the vague hope that it will encourage random acts of kindness among viewers) is all that really matters

Humans Are Weird

Humans Are Weird

[About the Weird]

 

Humans are weird!

Well, I reckon they are anyway.  And so, to pay respect to the various human-centric foibles that many of us so proudly possess - some beautiful, some not so beautiful, and some teetering on the ebb of psychotic waters – I’ve made this blog.

 Colourful.  Observations.

Equals me, observing, projecting, coagulating, and documenting – colourfully – awe striking humanisms: the good, the bad, the somewhere in between, and the *censored* ugly! Oh, and the weird, of course.

Enjoy!
