    From morning till night Some weathered salty sea men Fish to classic rock A Narrative Documentary Cinematography by Zack McGeehan Sound / Post Production by Dimitri Kouri 1st Place - 2011 Redstone Film Festival, Boston, MA "...a beautifully photographed and expertly edited day in the life of Winthrop lobster fisherman ploying their endangered trade. Devoid of any commentary beyond the playlist of the oldies radio station the crew is listening to, it employs the minimalist and illuminating style of documentaries like 'Sweetgrass.'" - Peter Keough - The Boston Phoenix, 2/9/11 "...a striking film, with no dialogue, brilliant lighting and camera shots as slick as the decks the fishermen stood on. Salty Dogs is a smoothly minimalist film, where narrative is not as important as the minutiae of a day in these fisherman’s lives. The film doesn’t suffer from the lack of a solid plot; instead, its strengthened by the honest portrayal of the boredom and repetitive beauty of life on the sea." - Paul Squire - buquad.com, 2/13/11 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1855330/

      Mopti, an important port in Mali, bathed by the Niger River. The typical bustle of this place encourages us to take a trip on the river in a pinasse. From the boat we can see the villages of the Bozo fishermen, the handmade canoes with their coloured stems and the Tuaregue fields. The importance of this river in the lives of the inhabitants is due to the fact that it is their only means of communication and business. Mopti, importante porto do Mali banhado pelo rio Níger. A azáfama característica deste lugar convida-nos a um passeio fluvial numa pinasse. Do barco avistam-se as povoações de pescadores bozo, as canoas artesanais com proas coloridas e os campos tuarege. A influência deste rio na vida dos habitantes deve-se ao facto de ser a única via de comunicação e de negócios.

        Com um bom porto de mar, Saint-Louis ou a Veneza da África foi a primeira cidade com estruturas defensivas da costa africana e um importante centro de comércio de ouro, goma arábica, marfim e escravos. Perdeu a sua importância no momento da independência do Senegal, a favor da nova capital Dakar. Hoje a principal actividade económica da cidade é a pesca, com mais de 4.000 pescadores. Desde 2000, está inscrita na lista de Património Mundial da UNESCO. With a good seaport, Saint-Louis, also known as the Venice of Africa, was the first city on the African coast that possessed defensive structures; it was an important trading centre for gold, Arabic gum, ivory and slaves. It lost its importance in favour of the new capital Dakar, when Senegal achieved its independence. Today, the city’s main activity is fishing, with more than 4,000 fishermen. It has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000.

          Trailer: https://vimeo.com/53419719 There comes a time in all of our lives when we let ourselves dream about living life on our own terms. When we wrestle with the decision to take a step into traffic, follow our passions and live deliberately - or simply let another day, and daydream, pass. In the end, it doesn’t matter if we make the decision of our own accord, or life makes it for us. It’s where our heart and soul are that matter. For some, the result is a closer alignment between vocation and avocation, for some it’s a reprioritization of what’s important in life, for some it’s the very real difference between life and death. Set primarily against the diverse, rugged and breathtaking landscape of Idaho and Oregon, A Deliberate Life explores the stories of five unlikely friends who share the same love of fly fishing and the outdoors and their choice to lead a life according to their passions.

              Através destas imagens tentei captar o quotidiano de Niamey. Um elemento sempre muito presente é o rio Níger e é em torno dele que fervilha a vida destas populações. Nas suas margens, diante dos meus olhos, cruzam-se os lavadores de roupa, pescadores, transportadores e um sem fim de mulheres e crianças, sempre sob a observação dos hipopótamos, o mais importante habitante deste rio. I have sought, through these images, to capture the day-to-day life in Niamey. An ever present element is the Niger River, around which the life of the population thrives. On its shores and before my eyes, the paths of launderers, fishermen, carriers and of a myriad of women and children cross, always under the watchful gaze of the hippos, the most important inhabitants of this river.

                Chanting loudly, the fisherman drag their boats to the shore, as above the birds circle in hope of scavenging some fresh fish. Dolphins can be seen at play in the waves off in the distance, but here closer to the shore it is a surfer that takes center stage. Positioning himself in a small barrel wave, he moves further out, cutting into the surf. He appears out of place, it’s as if someone has simply pasted him into the scene. But this is only a first impression, and after a while you start to realize that this scene is simply a natural part of a larger picture, and that India offers one of the most unique surfing spots on the planet.

                  A story for true seafood lovers... You need more than two hands to count the number of seafood restaurants and shacks out in Eastern Long Island, but only one to tally the number of places who actually buy their seafood straight from the captains of local boats. Meet Chef Jennifer Meadows of Fishbar, a new local seafood restaurant in Montauk, who begged her way onto the boats of local commercial fishermen to guarantee her fish was as fresh and as local as possible. Supporting sustainable seafood harvesters in her little fishing village is a mission she sees no other way, and her story hopes to inspire more restaurants to do the same...

                      PLEASE: This is actuualy my FIRST RAW video, done quiet a long time ago - but still getting lots of views. Please check my other videos for more and even better examples. Thanks! This was done as an exercise with Davinci Resolve, Film Convert and round-tripping to FCP X and back, and as a test of RAW vs h264 - This is the RAW version. H264 Version is here: https://vimeo.com/81285051 Shot on the beach with a canon 60D and magic Lantern. The 60D only lets me capture up to about 5 seconds, and only at 1724x732 (or less). Also, with RAW I get some nasty black pixels, which i can't se any other way (not with h264 or stills - not even with RAW stills). UPDATE: Nasty black pixels problem solved. Apparently, the problem originates from newer version on Magic Lantern. Downloading and older Version solved the problem. Nice! If you compare the two versions, the difference are quite clear (apart from the nasty pixels) - Be sure to download the original video. I'll leave it to you to decide. Color correction and grading with Davinci Resolve lite and Film Convert. edited with FCP X. Music; "Dissent From The Pedastal" by Lee Rosevere (http://members.shaw.ca/happypuppyrecords/index.html)
