      • Ad Culture to Permaculture - PechaKucha Victoria #10


        from Christopher Heffley / Added

        PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace. "A decade is a lot to cover in 400 seconds. I was invited to present my journey from a cubical in an advertising agency to an off-grid cabin in a forest. Awakening to our on-going crisis brought about by peak-oil, climate change and general stupidity - I opted for re-education and self-exploration aligned with the ethics of sustainability and found my way to a wonderful concept called Permaculture. This video, very, very, briefly documents part of that journey. Enjoy!" *This is the original audio track from the microphone and the video from a camera in the distance. Mash-up style, hopefully it all worked out. There was a lot of laughter, but adding in the canned stuff would be too awkward. :)

          BBC documentaire uit 2009 over de wereldwijde voedsel- en landbouwcrisis, m.m.v. Martin Crawford (Agroforestry Research Trust), Fordhall Farm, Richard Heinberg en anderen. Rebecca Hosking, boerendochter die documentaire-filmer werd, gaat in op het energiegebruik in de landbouw, dat in de komende jaren kritiek zal worden, zonder in paniek te vervallen. Aan de hand van voorbeelden in Engeland verkent ze de mogelijke perspectieven, zoals een milieuvriendelijke land en tuinbouw die ons leven zou kunnen veranderen. Ze kiest ervoor om terug te keren naar de boerderij waar ze opgegroeid is en gaat die van haar vader overnemen. Maar HOE gaat ze boeren? Er komen wetenschappers van naam aan het woord: Patrick Whitefield, Rob Hopkins, Rosie Boycott, Richard Heinberg, Tim Lang e.a.. Niet alleen permacultuur-enthousiastelingen komen hier aan hun trekken: elk weldenkend mens kan zijn/haar voordeel doen met deze documentaire. (Nederlands ondertiteld)

          • After The Peak Trailer


            from Jim McQuaid / Added

            A documdrama in the form of a local TV news show. Unless you believe that the Earth magically creates crude oil, it seems clear that we will eventually run out of oil. The product of our ever-growing need for oil and the gradual slowing down of discovery and production will create a moment in time known as "peak oil." At that moment there is still a lot of oil in the ground, but the rate of production of oil will begin to slowly go down instead of up. That is the point at which the potentially disastrous economic effects will occur. Fracking increases the rate at which can be draw down this resource, suggesting that the eventual decline may be steeper than we previously thought.

                      Alaska Pray 2B Arabia (Cry Cry Cry) (Glacialmelt Reggae Remix) This is a rough cut entry in the Johnny Cash remix contest on AcidPlanet. It builds off, a bit, from the more subtle invention of an Alaskan Reggae version, without the spoken word clips that appear in this version. Here, Johnny Cash counterpoints with "Cry Cry Cry" as Sarah Palin states her faith and exhorts prayer to build her favorite pipeline, sell Alaska and rid the world of community organizers once and for all. Most tracks were remapped to a defective reggae beat. There's still not enough skank (guitar) here, I realize all too well. Then again, it's hard work skanking when you're wearing those bigass gloves all winter long. At least while the contest is still running, from now until October 5, 2008, the MP3 can be downloaded free at http://www.acidplanet.com/artist.asp?PID=1153600&T=6566 To the discerning vimeo residents: As for the video, I regret the very bad stills in some cases and am on the hunt for better ones. Even better I would like to find some authentic stock footage if anyone is prepared to offer it. Also, I'm painfully aware there's way too much sloppy zooming in the pan & scan choreography here. I'm also hoping to add much better maps of Alaska and the Athabasca tar fields, soon as I secure permissions from potential collaborators, or find a way to create my own clips to fill the weak spots. Suggestions and offers to collaborate on a better version of this, particularly on the photo/video side, will be much appreciated. If you're interesting in making this video better (or making a response video or something similar) there are more materials in the Tar Sands and Polar Bears Group ( http://www.vimeo.com/groups/TSNPB )
