1. The Edge of the Earth - DOCUMENTARY


    from Eric Dennis Added 220K 5,085 343

    A documentary about a journey to "The Edge of the Earth". The Gates of the Arctic National Park is the northernmost national park in the U.S. (the entirety of the park lies north of the Arctic Circle).There are no established roads, trails, visitor facilities, or campgrounds in the park. Following the Alatna River you will see an amazing place people rarely see, including the amazing Arrigetch Peaks. "For the next two weeks you must survive using the knowledge, skills and gear you bring with you. You will walk or float through intact ecosystems where people have lived with the land for thousands of years. You will experience solitude, self reliance and nature on its own terms. Are you prepared?" Filmed using Solar Power for Two Weeks = 10,000 combined shutter releases and video clips. Below is the link to how I accomplished this and stored all the pictures and video files. Here is a link to the trailer: http://www.vimeo.com/17039896 This is were we stayed in Bettles, AK on the way back: http://www.vimeo.com/19736183 This is the link to the How to on the solar power set-up. http://www.vimeo.com/20173304 My brother took a longer trip, with his girlfriend Monika, on the Noatak River the following year. https://vimeo.com/67932494 Camera: 5D mark II Lenses: EF 28mm F1.8 EF 70-200mm F2.8 EF 400mm F5.6 Music: "Intro" The xx "My Girls" Animal Collective "Sweet Disposition" The Temper Trap "The Road to Nothingness" Solar Fields "Boy With a Coin" Iron & Wine

    • New Trailer: STEPS - A journey to the edge of climate change


      from Ride Greener Added 60.3K 316 35

      ARE YOU READY TO GET INSPIRED? In the winter of 2012/13, RIDE GREENER and COUPDOEIL FILM dared to take the step of making the impossible become possible: they produced the first climate friendly snowboard and ski film. In STEPS, the effects of climate change are shown in parallel with the allure of winter sports. The film pursues the question of whether or not snowboarding and skiing in today’s world can be done in harmony with nature. STEPS, a documentary and action film, dives into the world of people whose deep connection to the mountains ties them together. Worried about impending climate change, they are looking for an alternative way to pursue their passion in harmony with nature and experience the mountains in an ecologically sustainable way. Instead of flying around the world in pursuit of snow, they explore the Alps at their doorstep. They travel using public transportation and climb the highest, most impressive peaks on their own before beginning their spectacular descents and jumps. Despite all of their efforts, they reach their limits and realize the real paradox existing in doing winter sports in harmony with nature.

                    Shared more films with the lonely desert and the critters again. This time was an old jail in Tecopa and part of an abandoned resort facing the Soda Mountains. At one point two curious bats joined us on the floor of the old building. Robert Fulton, manager of California Sate University Desert Studies Center welcomed us including myself, family, artist Fred L'Epee and our films as the Desert Research Center's guests. Robert, also gave a candid interview concerning some of the environmental challenges facing the Soda Mountains and the Mojave. More on that later along with more films and story STAND tuned...

Lange Absent Voices 5/ Yesterday's Noise by Alastair Cook Distorted Time by Rasoul Moareknejad The Forgotten Film Gallery is a web based documentary film and video art installation project which strives to showcase a collection of films dealing with interpretations of the forgotten and the indefinite time period during and after the present. The Forgotten Film Gallery will attempt to link the past, present and future using unique areas of the Mojave desert and the World Wide Web as it's gallery installation space. Goal The goal for the Forgotten Film Gallery is to unite the new with the old. Link the past to the future using the remoteness of the desert as the gallery space and the world wide web as a platform to distribute a documentary freely with the public. Impact By utilizing the lonely desert as an audience. Contemporary artists might continue to create freely without the fear of rejection. Sharing the film on the web will also allow the general public to recognize and value the importance of our often under appreciated past and present natural environment.
