    A follow up refraction experiment featuring the Alphabet spoken by the late GREAT Richard Pryor. Mixed with Blockhead's "Coloringbook". Camera: 5D Lenses: EF 100 EF 100 - Reverse coupled to 50 1.4 for a couple shots. Honestly this was just too damn close. EF 24-105 L - Intro Music: Coloringbook by Blockhead Highly recommend listening to the full track, all of his music for that matter. Mixed with Richard Pryor's ABC's, once again brought to you by Sesame Street. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJh_EUrEAZg

        Brilliant Noise by Semiconductor: Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt Avaliable on DVD! with 12 alternate soundtracks http://www.semiconductorfilms.com/WorldsInFluxDVD.html Brilliant Noise takes us into the data vaults of solar astronomy. After sifting through hundreds of thousands of computer files, made accessible via open access archives, Semiconductor have brought together some of the sun's finest unseen moments. These images have been kept in their most raw form, revealing the energetic particles and solar wind as a rain of white noise. This grainy black and white quality is routinely cleaned up by NASA, hiding the processes and mechanics in action behind the capturing procedure. Most of the imagery has been collected as single snapshots containing additional information, by satellites orbiting the Earth. They are then reorganised into their spectral groups to create time-lapse sequences. The soundtrack highlights the hidden forces at play upon the solar surface, by directly translating areas of intensity within the image brightness into layers of audio manipulation and radio frequencies. Lots more info here: http://www.semiconductorfilms.com/root/Brilliant_Noise/BNoise.htm ...this version suffers a bit from the internet compression. The original version is much better.

              In the not too distant future, Earth is occupied by a hostile alien race that's aggressively searching for a missing alien artifact -- a sphere that contains an infinite source of powerful energy. When a resistance fighter gains possession of the sphere, he races to unlock the energy it contains in order to eradicate the alien forces and return Earth to humankind. Budget approx: $13k Production on The Sphere started nearly two years ago. Utilizing Canon DSLRs, a MacBook Pro, and a dedicated team of professional filmmakers, we set out to create a large scale sci-fi action adventure short film on a modest budget knowing that significant breakthroughs in camera technology along with the availability of professional visual effects software could give life to an epic idea. After principal photography and Nicholas's original designs for the alien ships were complete, several artists from around the world were commissioned to help with the visual effects, though roughly 85% of the film's VFX were created by Nicholas Militello using a laptop and an array of servers. Post-production proved to be a lengthy but rewarding process as editing, sound design, visual effects, color correction and an original score were brought together for the final film. With post-production now complete, we are thrilled to premiere The Sphere. Please visit http://thespheremovie.com for more info. It Factor, Inc. - www.itfactorinc.com

                In June 2012, "Welcome to the Anthropocene"—a film about the state of the planet—opened the UN's Rio+20 summit on sustainable development. The summit was the largest UN meeting to date. A 3-minute journey through the last 250 years of our history, from the start of the Industrial Revolution to the Rio+20 Summit. The film charts the growth of humanity into a global force on an equivalent scale to major geological processes.

                  The Path is my Grad Project for the Digital Design program at VFS. It was inspired by a picture took from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope of one of the furthest galaxies ever seen, spotted crossing behind the Pandora's Cluster. The aesthetics came from a personal interest about the dimensions of the universe in terms of distance and time and the mechanics applied to it, making the universe a system of perpetual motion. Here is a link to the Case Study of the video: https://vimeo.com/125003711 If you want to know more about the picture, here is the article from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope website: http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/galaxy/2014/39/full/ Music by: Rameses B Memoirs (Cinematic Version FREE) https://soundcloud.com/ramesesb/rameses-b-memoirs-cinematic

                    This video is a presentation of the subjects that inform and inspire my personal work. It is an eclectic collection that includes poetry, mysticism, mathematics, music, theology, quantum physics, sacred geometry, philosophy and visual arts. In my body of work, each piece has served as a learning experience; an opportunity to discover new aspects of my own reality. They were not created to make any specific statements or assert any truths. Instead, I started every piece with the hope that an unexpected grain of truth would reveal itself to me. The value of my work can be attributed to this intangible process of exploration and its resulting ephemeral glimpses into the mysterious.

                      The lighting in "Blade Runner" was instrumental in my desire to make films. Jordan Cronenweth's cinematography of that film was ahead of its time, and still looks great today. I did my best to recreate the look of one scene I've always found particularly beautiful. For years, I've wanted to do this scene. Now, with the Gh-1, I finally did it! And, in a casting coup, Speed Levitch plays Deckard. You may know Speed from films like "The Cruise", "Waking Life", and from the cartoon series "Stroker & Hoop". Shot using a Nikon 24mm and a Nikon 35mm prime. GH-1 set to the Smooth setting. Contrast at minus 2. 200 ISO, shutter speed 1/50th, lens at f2.0. White balance set to Tungsten (the light bulb icon). 1080p 24p. Converted to Apple Pro Res in FCP. Pulldown removed with JES Deinterlacer. Graded with FCP Color Corrector 3-Way Filter and Magic Bullet Looks. Don't expect a complete story, or even a complete scene. It's just a lighting experiment. I love my GH-1!
