    Hussein worked for his family's real estate company before the Syrian uprising became increasingly violent 8 months ago. Frequent bombings and gunfire between President Bashar al-Assad forces and Syrian rebels turned the country into one of the most dangerous place in the world. Most jobs in Syria, including Hussein's in Qusayr, disappeared. Hussein, a pro-revolution activist who asked not to use his last name for fear of retribution, began taking pictures and videos of the violence and sending them to TV stations, free of charge. Blockades and attacks on foreign journalists in Syria has made real-time information about the conflict more and more scarce. Broadcaster are increasingly relying on untrained citizen journalists like Hussein for insight into what's going on in the country. In this eye-opening Storyhunter video, Hussein tells his story.

        Civil war lasted for for more than 30 years in Sri Lanka. Now that the conflict has ended hundreds of thousands of people have been left homeless or forced to live in IDP camps. They have lost their homes, their lively hoods and now have little chance of providing a better life for their children. These are the people of conflict, people whose daily life is one of survival.

        • RURAL PRETÉRITO - EXPERIMENTAL DOCUMENTARY

          "Rural preterit". An Experimental documentary. Lenght: 06 minutes 36 seconds Language: Galician with English subtitles. Shortmovie and Film Score by Sonia and Miriam Albert Sobrino (Also Sisters) UPDATE NOVEMBER 2011: Official selection FLUXUS International Film Festival Official Selection at CINESPAÑA Film Festival. Official Selection at Explora Competition within Curtocircuito Film Festival. Nominated in the category of best experimental film within the Galician Academy Awards. Also known as "Premios Mestre Mateo". "Rural Preterit" is an experimental documentary that -through the memories of two people that once lived in a now abandoned village in Galicia- explores the causes and consequences of rural exile. The documentary confronts the simplicity of the rural life and the influence of the technology in our daily routine. In other words, could we really live without technology? GALICIAN SINOPSE A néboa deixa paso ao sol que se resiste a levantarse. A aldea é un eco do pasado, un fantasma do que só as pedras das casas derrubadas son testemuñas. Os seus habitantes marcharon obrigados, coa velocidade coa que se acende unha lámpada ao pulsar o interruptor. 40 anos máis tarde e coa vida refeita nas urbes, o exilio do rural galego demostra que o abandono trouxo consigo unha teórica mellora na calidade de vida pero tamén a morriña dun estilo de vida non dependente da tecnoloxía. "Rural Pretérito" é un documental experimental que realiza unha retrospectiva sobre o estilo de vida dos habitantes dunha aldea hoxe extinta. O emprego da narración, efectos sonoros e a súa relación coa imaxe cuestiona se o avance tecnolóxico nas cidades compensou que o ámbito rural se converta, hoxe, nunha forma de vida case pretérita.

              This is the final update to my experimental "evolving" vidblog from my Maryland trip (April 26th - May 4th 2009). Every day I updated the video with the latest footage from that day, the editing changed based on my mood, and the scene's/places were different everyday. This video is now my whole trip as I saw it from start to finish. Enjoy.

                The Sixth Gun is an ongoing comic book series that takes place shortly after the civil war. It's a compilation of a few genres - at its core, it's a western - but is infused with some sci-fi and horror elements as well. The artwork and story are amazing, so I felt inspired to create a "trailer" for the series. Here it is.

                    http://www.historytheatre.com/shows/2011-2012/civil_war_xmas.asp This was the second video I produced after hacking my GH2 for the History Theater in St. Paul, Minnesota (www.historytheatre.com) for their upcoming Christmas musical that takes place at the end of the Civil War. Since there weren't any sets built and the cast was just beginning rehearsals, we decided to shoot some of the cast's hands in ECU. We filmed at 60fps, which with the hack was at 32MPBS and 720p. ISO was set at 160, and we left the 20mm f/1.7 wide open. Lighting was with two Cowboy Studio fluorescent lights, one overhead, and one to the side. Shutter speed was left at 100 for the duration of the shoot. In post, we blended the footage 50% with a Gold Process plugin from Magic Bullet Quick Looks to give everything a slightly yellow and aged look. Like the look? Hate it? Tell us in the comments! This video was produced by Sugo Media, which provides hyper-local advertising services and consulting to Twin Cities businesses and non-profits. Visit http://www.sugomedia.com to learn more! Video was shot on hacked GH2 with the 20mm f/1.7 lens at 160 ISO in slow motion at 32MBPS.
