  3. This clip from SAMSARA showing food production and consumption has been getting a lot of attention!

    From SAMSARA producer Mark Magidson:
    "We are happy this clip has struck a chord with so many people, and we hope that the interest in this clip will lead viewers to see SAMSARA in its entirety. This clip represents only 6 minutes from a 100 minute long film, which was photographed in 25 countries and explores many other diverse aspects of the human experience. We would love for viewers to experience SAMSARA as a whole."

  4. An extended preview of a film constructed from 150,000 photographs that combines time lapse footage of riots, optical illusion paintings and stars. Modern Ruin is a contemplation of the idea that creation and destruction is the same thing. In the same way that you, life itself and even the laws of the universe are deeply paradoxical, so too are the realities pieced together to form this non-reality.

    Every event depicted in Modern Ruin happened in naked reality, from the riots, to the optical-illusion paintings.

    NOTES:
    All of my films are accompanied by still portfolios and outtakes culled from thousands of photographs shot for the film. They are designed not just to reflect the artwork in the film, but to add another dimension to it. They can be found on my website: jeff-frost.com

    Riots – I would like to be clear that the riots in this film, which began right outside my front door, were set in motion when the Anaheim police department shot and killed an unarmed man last summer. When the residents of my neighborhood began protesting they showed up and shot into the crowd with rubber bullets, threw tear gas and released a K9 unit, which mauled one man’s arm. They would later say that releasing the dog was accidental. There’s quite a bit more to the story obviously, but I want to make sure that it’s well understood that the footage in this film is not meant to be consumed as a factual news item. It’s definitely taken out of the context of reality and used in another. It’s making art out of news.

  5. Music video for Kelpe's "Go Visible" by filmmakers Mira Loew and David Altweger in collaboration with contemporary dancer Melissa Spiccia. The video opens with the invitation to "make yourself at home" in a stranger's flat, which the female protagonist accepts by exploring the room through the movements of her body. Unexpected things occur when the space and artifacts within it guide her towards ritualistic acts of unknown purpose.
