1. Ten years ago, more than 100,000 public housing residents in Chicago learned that their buildings would be torn down. Telling Our Story reveals the human story behind America’s most ambitious plan to transform public housing. This is the residents’ story: the hardships they experienced, the gains some enjoyed, the lessons they’ve learned, and their hopes for the future. Telling Our Story is a call to action for public housing residents and public housing authorities nationwide. It offers a timely reminder that good public policy cannot be developed without the voices of those most affected being included in its planning and implementation.

    Telling Our Story was produced by the Chicago Video Project.

  4. Auburn University's Rural Studio in western Alabama draws architectural students into the design and construction of homes and public spaces in some of the poorest counties in the United States. They're creating beautiful and economical structures that are unique in the world — and that nurture sustainability of the natural world as of human dignity.

    The iconographic structures of Mason's Bend have become synonymous with Sam Mockbee and the Rural Studio. We've put together a feast of images and voices from the people who live and work there.

    Produced by Colleen Scheck and Trent Gilliss.

  5. During the day Rotterdam is a busy city.
    After the bombings in WO2 the city was almost completely demolished and because of this the city was resurrected almost completely in concrete and marble. The lights you see shining up at the end of the film is indicating the zone within what zone the bombs fell.

    It's the only city with this kind of high rise buildings and large modern promenades in The Netherlands.

    As soon as the night falls and the sun hides itself behind the concrete horizon; the city becomes quiet and desolate.

    All of this was shot in two nights with the EX1 and edited in FCP. Only light grading done in post (some contrast here and there)
    I also saturated some shots to make it look more desolate, sadly enough it also took the sparkle out some of the shots.

    I am not sure about the edit, please comment on it, I have the feeling something doesn't fit or is missing...

    Additional photography made by Joel Laumans (http://www.piksels.com)
