1. The Windmill Farmer


    from Joaquin Baldwin Added 129K 1,983 95

    A nurturing farmer in is danger of losing his crop of windmills when he struggles against the cyclical forces of nature. Created at the UCLA Animation Workshop, with music by Nick Fevola. This film was inspired while driving back from a trip to Palm Springs, when a friend said that it must take them forever to plant and grow so many windmills. I wrote down the title The Windmill Farmer for an idea to explore later, and about a year later I started developing it into a character and story. This film took 4 months to complete from the first boards until the final mix.

    • Made by Hand / No 3 The Beekeeper


      from Made by Hand Added 137K 1,788 56

      A project from http://bureauofcommongoods.com, Made by Hand is a new short film series celebrating the people who make things by hand—sustainably, locally, and with a love for their craft. Local farmer Megan Paska has witnessed beekeeping as it morphed from an illegal (and possibly crazy) habit to a sustainable, community-supported skill. Mirroring beekeeping’s own ascendance, she found more than just a living: “This is the first time in my life when I’ve just felt absolutely on the right path.” director-producer KEEF director of photography JOSHUA KRASZEWSKI editor MATT SHAPIRO title design MANDY BROWN colorist ANDY WITKOWSKI music ALESSANDRO CORTINI sound recordist ROBERT ALBRECHT re-recording mixer NICHOLAS MONTGOMERY assistant re-recording mixer JOHN GUMAER additional camera ELIAS RESSEGATTI & ADAM ORELLANA special thanks MEGAN PASKA / BROOKLYN HOMESTEADER ANNIE NOVAK / GROWING CHEFS EAGLE STREET ROOFTOP FARM CREW CUTS www.thisismadebyhand.com http://bureauofcommongoods.com www.brooklynhomesteader.com www.growingchefs.org www.rooftopfarms.org http://keef.tv http://sonoio.org www.crewcuts.com

        • Debien - Explainer Video


          from binalogue Added 15K 1,022 20

          This is the type of project we simply fell in love with since the very moment we were invited to participate in it. Debien is a brand new Spanish range of basic food products created as a fair and sustainable alternative to the conventional distribution models that only benefit large corporations. Debien works directly with local farmers, fishermen and other food suppliers and helps them distribute their produce to the main markets. By reducing their own profit margin, Debien offers below-the-average prices to consumers and to top it all off, they donate 10% of all their profit to Spain’s central food bank “Bancos de Alimentos”. This food bank is the largest non-profit organization in Spain responsible for providing food to families who’ve been dramatically affected by the recent financial debacle the country has gone through and have found themselves unable to cover basic needs such as food. Rafa Coelho and Miguel González, the talented guys who crafted a heartfelt and down to earth script which set the tone for the entire piece invited us to create this explainer video. From conceptualizing its look & feel, through to directing it and producing the entire piece. Our goal was to communicate the true essence and philosophy of the entire Debien initiative and leave viewers wanting to find out more and support such a fantastic cause. We felt the best way to do this was to create a piece with a tactile and stripped down finish, both on its visuals as well as its music. A piece done by real people for real people that will hopefully remind us and make us want to be part of fairer alternatives to the traditional systems where just a few get the biggest benefits while leaving those in most need outside the loop. It’s been a true honor to have the chance to contribute to this cause. Debien ¿Nos echas una mano? Can you give us a hand?

              • one day in the life of a rice farmer


                from Alexander Baumgartner Added 36.1K 406 37

                For many, a bowl of rice is a simple trip to the supermarket. Rarely do we think about the production of our food. The documentary shows a typical day in the life of a rice farmer and the laborious process of rice farming. You can see how well-connected the whole system is and the number of parties involved in farming rice. The way in which the farmer gently treats his animals illustrates the importance of every single life and how it is part of a greater system.
From cultivation to sale the visuals give you a sense of the strenuous, manual and monotonous work in the rice paddies. Every action has an intention – the self-grown rice is used to feed the fishes, which will be caught and cooked for dinner. Every step and actor in the process is part of an efficient, self-sustaining system. The simplicity of the video appeals to your senses and gives the viewer a real understanding of these conditions. You are transported into another world by listening to the original sounds. Commentary or music are not necessary to complete the documentary. This is not only a video, it‘s an experience! camera: alexander baumgartner sound: isabelle baumgartner film editing: alexander baumgartner sound design: ferdinand feifel special thanks to: the family barque don bosco foundation for sustainable development gaspard weisheimer isabelle baumgartner haiggi baumgartner eckard grundmann
