This is one of the most amazing things that I have ever seen. It’s a great look into the incredible mind of Stanley Kubrick. Even if you are not a fan of this work, you will be a fan of how he worked and this documentary.
This is a great video about Bryn Rawlyk and The Night Oven Bakery. One of the best things about Saskatoon.
“When you don’t have a home, you’re ostracized.”
Jen Wolf spent part of her childhood living in a VW van with her family. Now she returns to her hometown of Ventura, CA, in a VW Bubbletop she restored with her husband to revisit her youth and find the healing she didn’t realize she was looking for
A leading political strategist explains how candidates use the art of storytelling to help swing elections.
Mr. McKinnon has had a long career working for politicians from both parties. As the lead media strategist for George W. Bush’s 2000 and 2004 campaigns as well as John McCain’s winning 2008 primary campaign, he was instrumental in shaping the way we perceived his candidates and their opponents. Remember the 2004 windsurfing ad that branded John Kerry a flip-flopper? That’s his work.
But Mr. McKinnon burned out on presidential campaigns, and increasingly came to view the oversimplification and negativity at the heart of modern campaigning as a leading contributor to the toxic political climate in which we now live. So when we sat down with him, we asked him to turn over his secret playbook.
In this film, he reveals the storytelling strategies used to elect Mr. Bush with openness and candor, and in doing so lays bare the fundamental narrative strategies that remain at the core of today’s presidential campaigns. But Mr. McKinnon believes that the power of storytelling has a dark side that voters should be more aware of. His new message is a warning to all citizens: You’re being manipulated, and our democracy relies on your ability to see that .
This is hilarious. via
Conrad maintains the century-old infrastructure at Pratt University. A tinkerer and meticulous mechanic with a charming outlook on life, Conrad is everything you want in a documentary subject. And just when you think the film is about to repeat itself, a great new wrinkle gets thrown into the mix.
This is amazing. Worth a watch (and listen).
At a recent estate sale on the south side of Chicago, Jeff Altman spotted a canister of film simply labeled “Chicago” and “Print 1.” That tidbit of information was intriguing enough for Altman to drop $40 on the print.
Altman, who works in film post-production, took two weeks to inspect and fix minor issues before scanning and turning it into a digital video.
The result is this short film, a marvelous and thorough overview of 1940s Chicago, when the Wrigley and Tribune Towers were still considered modern landmarks.
This is the sound of what the World Cup sounds like when Brazil scores a goal in a Rio de Janeiro neighborhood. I love it.
