    Thousands of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints continue to volunteer to assist in the recovery efforts in communities affected by Hurricane Sandy. On Sunday, November 11th, thousands of these church members cancelled their church services and arrived by air, bus and train from all across the country to help. Although these efforts are organized by the church, anyone and everyone is invited to participate. If you or someone you know needs this help, please call 718-672-2031 or email 2012006@ldschurch.org **update*** I never really imagined this would get such a worldwide response. My original intent was just to create something beautiful that would motivate my other single friends here in NYC to come out and help in the coming weeks. Obviously it's resonated with a much larger group at this point and I am happy to share it with those that find it inspiring. Many have requested a copy that they can show to their own groups across the world. Get in touch with me via my Facebook page (listed below), tell me a little bit about with who and where you would like to share it, and I will be in touch.

This short form, experimental documentary hovers along the East River, at the Williamsburg Waterfront in Brooklyn, where hundreds of spectators flocked to absorb the electrifying amusements of an approaching super-storm. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT When I set out to film my neighborhood in Williamsburg, Brooklyn the night of the hurricane, I did not anticipate the footage I was about to film. My main objective was to make a short film of whatever I captured that night. But after the explosion, things quickly changed. I now possess a historic piece of footage that shows New York City humbled by the forces of Mother Nature. The same force of nature that many other countries in the world succumb to each year. This film is an emotional response of what it actually felt like to be out in hurricane Sandy, amidst all of her immense energy, while she devastated and consumed parts of ours.

                      Rebuild by Design, an initiative of the Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force and HUD, addressed structural and environmental vulnerabilities that Hurricane Sandy exposed in communities throughout the region and developing fundable solutions to protect residents from future climate events. BIG Team's Dryline is a vision for a protective system around Manhattan from West 54th street south to The Battery and up to East 40th street: 10 continuous miles of low-lying geography that comprise an incredibly dense, vibrant, and vulnerable urban area. The Dryline consists of multiple but linked design opportunities; each on different scales of time, size and investment; each local neighborhood tailoring its own set of programs, functions, and opportunities. Small, relatively simple projects maintain the resiliency investment momentum post-Sandy, while setting in motion the longer-term solutions that will be necessary in the future.
