1. Return to Moose Pond


    from Paul Frederick Added 33.2K 516 197

    I usually do non-narrative short films. This one is different! My wife, son and I love to go wilderness camping. Where you canoe in with a tent, food and all you need to a remote site. The last several years we have not found the time to go, however our son is getting older and soon won't be able to go with us, so we made sure to get away this summer. It was a special trip and one that I felt needed some narration to explain how I was feeling about it all. Most of the music is by a friend of mine, Scott B. Adams from the CD "Listening to the Adirondacks". Check him out on iTunes! I hope you enjoy what is surely my most personal film to date. On the technical side, I used a SONY EX1 and a Canon 7D along with a Konova slider. Only had room in the canoe for a real junky tripod, hence not much panning or tilting! I shot the 7D footage with the Technicolor cinestyle preset and graded with Magic Bullet Looks. Let me know what you think of this departure from my normal videos.

    • Paris / New York


      from matel Added 669K 6,450 189

      Paris & NY, like many large cities, have a lot in common ; transport, infrastructure, national monuments. I wanted to explore not only these comparisons but also the differences, in order to expose the beauty and individuality of each. What you cannot deny is the vibrancy and explosion of character each city has and I thought split-screen with timelapse would be a good way to help convey this. Created for OpenSkies, the french airline specialist on the Paris-New York route. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to collaborate with you and make this video. www.ba.com/openskiesus Shot with canon 5D mark III and edited with Lightroom, After Effects and Premiere Music is Tony Anderson - Further up, further in.

      • (The Quiet Escape) - a Short Film. 2015.


        from Ed David Added 38.1K 951 187

        This film is a quiet war cry in favor of quiet over loud to help with creativity and peace of mind. Very special thanks to Lily Henderson, the Bresnick-Curtis Family, the Henderson family, the David family, and Charlie Chicken. I want to thank Andrew Reid and EOSHD for making me aware of this small lightweight 4k camera - the NX1. It made this film so accessible to make. And also Samuel H who brings his camera knowledge online to the global filmmaking community and people like MacGregor and Hunter also online DPs who help push me to become better. And I want to personally thank Art Adams whose articles online have inspired me so much and Geoff Boyle with his CML that moves me forward and American CInematographer for issue after issue of inspiring information about cinematography, and Roger Deakins for giving back and sharing - and well - everyone - who gives back and shares. It helps me so much. Thru art we can all heal, and thru art we can help, and thru help we can help. This was shot on the Samsung NX1 with Nikon 35mm AIS lens and one shot on the 100mm Leica R lens. It can shoot 4k to h.265 internally. Shot mostly in UHD mode at 29.97 fps that I slowed down in post. My picture profile is contrast all the way down and saturation minus two. I desaturated in post. This film was incredibly fascinating to make - it was the first longer more serious project I have made since college. I originally made a cut of the film quickly and removed it from online because I wasn't happy with it. This time - I took my time. I wrote a long script, read it, saw how it worked, changed lines, and rewrote. I reshot many scenes. It was my own artistic journey to make this film the slow, long way. It was not easy - I would constantly procrastinate because I was scared that when it was done - I would release it and it would be horrible - so this film got me to finish my taxes and clean up my whole apartment. Man the courage it takes to make a film - to risk all ridicule and put something out there that is completely your idea! Also it kind of felt selfish when I can be doing other things. But the struggle is part of the beauty of it all - to completely immense yourself in trying to make something of meaning. God it's hard work.

          seeper love to de-familiarise the familiar; re-opening our eyes to a spectacular world. Working in collaboration with Vimeo to conclude the Vimeo Festival and Awards, seeper introduced “Light Lining” to the USA with a neon-veined visual embrace. The strange contours of the Frank Gehry IAC Headquarters building in New York City provided the perfect canvas for this spellbinding display of sight and sound. And why should our urban environment be static? seeper are paving the way for a world that is reactive. We are giving the world a pulse.

            from (a) TWIN (thing). Added 213K 3,245 184

            www.bagmanshortfilm.com BAG MAN is the understated story of a 12 year old African American boy, who takes us on an introspective journey out of the city and into the remote countryside of upstate New York. With a mysterious duffle bag in hand, its contents unknown to us, we journey from the urban hustle of Harlem, into the winter-ravaged woodlands a world away. On the road, we slowly discover his real intentions, and the startling significance of what is hidden inside a young boy’s bag. Directors JONATHAN & JOSH BAKER thrive on combining hauntingly beautiful imagery with quiet layered emotional experiences. The film juxtaposes high-concept visuals with the most regular of everyday characters and environments, creating an extremely relatable story that engages on multiple levels. Collaboration with the highest quality creative talent is essential with all projects they take on, and BAG MAN is no different – from cinematographer NICOLAS KARAKATSANIS (Academy Award Nominated ‘Bullhead’, ‘The Drop’), to LEGACY EFFECTS (‘Iron Man’, ‘Pacific Rim’, ‘Avatar’), to THE MILL (World-leading, international VFX studio), to colorist TOM POOLE (‘Drive’, ’12 Years A Slave’, ‘Foxcatcher’), to original music by Brooklyn-based threesome BIRD COURAGE.
