Movie Monday: Breath Again

Well this is disturbing and odd. Thoughtful? Maybe. Interesting? I’d say so.

Background about the project HERE.

The Future of the News Business: Marc Andreessen

I don’t agree with all of this, but there’s a lot to think about. A couple statements made the gears in my head grind in a different way, which is a good thing.

Movie Mondays: Chronemics

Visually and spatially very clever:

Reminds me of Spy vs Spy in a playful way. But I can’t help wonder if this tension – everything being a battle – isn’t a projected, human trait?

I hope that on higher levels, there is balance between “others” – not always conflict.

Movie Mondays: We Go Forward

Wow. It is all about the story. I mean, style is a huge vehicle to move it forward, but wow. Story and metaphor.
This is amazing.

Movie Mondays: Seagull Skytrails from Parker Paul

I LOVE this:

So many ideas come to mind. Perspectives on time and space and imperceptible trails we leave behind…

Every Frame a Painting – The Bad Sleep Well

This is an amazing lesson in framing and composition. Hitchcock’s quote is classic but never gets old.

This is amazing.
