A short documentary about DC-based artist Billy Colbert shot between July and December 2007.
Billy Colbert works from his studio in an abandoned warehouse at the corner of 14th and T streets in Washington, DC. The location couldn't be any hotter in terms of its development potential... So Billy can only occupy this space temporarily while the owners of the building search for development opportunities for their property.
In the meantime, Billy is creating a series of art that examines commercialism in our culture. He combines imagery from bus stop ads, cutting and pasting from various posters to create new posters with ironic new meaning.
Co-Directed by Brandon Bloch and Marc Alexander

Crew: Deran Brown, Zundra Bradley, Josh Solomon

Kevin Russ has been a huge inspiration to me since about 2005 when I saw some of his pictures on flickr. Over the years, he has just become such an incredible and focused photographer, ranging from doing portraiture now to landscape photography. He is one of the most humble men you will ever meet and really shows that there is no secret to photography or getting an incredible image.
Kevin has been traveling throughout the great American west shooting landscape and wildlife solely with his iPhone 4s and 5. He rarely pulls out his DSLR unless it's for a bear or bear cub where he can't get close. This is just a small peek into his life as a traveling photographer and some stories that come along with it.

This film explores playful uses for the increasingly ubiquitous ‘glowing rectangles’ that inhabit the world.
We use photographic and animation techniques that were developed to draw moving 3-dimensional typography and objects with an iPad. In dark environments, we play movies on the surface of the iPad that extrude 3-d light forms as they move through the exposure. Multiple exposures with slightly different movies make up the stop-frame animation.
We've collected some of the best images from the project and made a book of them you can buy: bit.ly/mfmbook
