    Nominated for an Emmy at the 2013 50th Annual Emmy Awards! I wanted to take the prim and proper concert piano and pianists straight off the stage and throw them into the dusty, scary, grimy mess of the factory where these majestic black creatures are born. I have always wanted to make a video with a piano in it and finally got the chance to make this quick little video! I have always been mesmerized by pianos, even just the look of them. They have always had an ominous quality to them. Their shiny, black skin, and volcanic vibrations inside. I wanted to show the piano the way I saw them...as passionate, living beings that suck the creative life out of anyone who touches them and feeds it into the ears of the listener. Steinway let my cinematographer (Nathan Miller) and I into their factory to run around and shoot with some of their brand new crazy expensive pianos. It was a dream come true! They don't let filmmakers or photographers in very often, so I am very grateful that they let us do the things I did inside there!! Haha! And to work with the pianists, having fun experimenting on this was one of the best times I've had this year. I almost got heat stroke, I sprained my ankle, and almost died from the fumes in the factory, but I (we) survived it! And thank you, Clay, for enduring the craziness!

    • This Isreal


      from Matty Brown Added 226K 3,464 561

      A road trip straight through Israel. Had no idea what the complexities and diversity of the cultures were, but I got deeper and deeper, seeing all walks of life living together in this amazing land. The conglomerate of things happening in that tiny, but EPIC country (it's smaller than New Jersey!) packed a punch like a bustling beehive. I was overwhelmed and totally let Israel envelope me. I bonded with every flavor of person there... they were all Israeli. They were all beautiful people. (By the way, the title isn't spelled wrong, lol...read it again ;) Shot with the 7D and edited with Sony Vegas I edited this video with a fever, kidney infection, and $4 headphones! LOL. Music by the amazing John Adams (Harmonielehre_ Part III - Meister) http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000TH4VOK/ref=dm_mu_dp_trk3 Featured in The Atlantic Magazine SPECIAL THANKS: -GONCALO DE ALMEIDA COSTA for touring me to the best places and meeting the best guides and locals! -KEITH RIVERS for letting me borrow his camera for the trip! -NATHAN MILLER for stocking me up on batteries and cards! Thank you guys for trusting me with your stuff! haha.

            From nuclear threats and the security implications of climate change to cyberwarfare and the future of al-Qaeda after Osama Bin Laden's death, security issues dominated a seminar for journalists hosted by Thomson Reuters Foundation, the Stanley Foundation and Gerda Henkel Stiftung. Reporting on International Security and Terrorism, a three-day event in London, brought together reporters from 13 countries including Pakistan, Afghanistan, Russia, Lebanon, Ethiopia, Uganda and the United States. Participants rubbed shoulders with leading security experts and major players in counter-terrorism, nuclear disarmament, genocide prevention and non-violent protest. The seminar wrapped up with a lively 'Newsmaker' discussion titled 'Facebook and People Power - The View from Tahrir Square'. http://www.trust.org/trustmedia/multimedia/video-and-audio/detail.dot?mediaInode=969c65e3-2b16-4ce4-9e10-6641a35f72c0
