      "City of ruins", the world's first digital reconstruction of a city destroyed during the Second World War, will be presented in the Warsaw Rising Museum from 1st August. The production of the film was entrusted to Platige Image. For 2 years, over 30-people team of graphic artists worked on the film. The film is over-five-minutes’ long simulation of the flight of a Liberator plane over the destroyed Warsaw of 1945. The image suggestively conveys the horror and the scale of destruction of the capital city after the Second World War. If you have not seen it with your own eyes, isolated photos from the time of the war will not convey it. It is only the film that truly reveals what Warsaw looked like just after the war had ended and from what kind of ruins it was raised, Jan Ołdakowski, the Director of the Warsaw Rising Museum. encourages the visitors to come to the Museum and watch the film.

        Been learning Vue and decided to combine it with Cinema 4D and After Effects to create some World War II footage. The B-17 model was a freebie online and I did a few minor modifications to it.

          An experimental non-fiction. Looking at the relationships between family, work, relationships and isolation. This piece takes its inspiration from a metal forge in Darlaston, Walsall in the UK. The subtitles draw inspiration from journal entries during World War II and the industrial revolution, they connect with a visceral and emotional resonance to the visuals on screen. This film should feel as at home on your screen as it would in a cinema, or an art gallery. Enjoy. Shot using the Canon 7D and a variety of lenses including a MIR 20mm f3.5, 135mm f2.8, Canon 35mm f2.0 and. 50mm 1.4. Thanks for looking - come back soon.

                    http://www.changjinlee.net/ COMFORT WOMEN WANTED brings to light the memory of 200,000 young women, referred to as "comfort women," who were systematically exploited as sex slaves in Asia during World War II, and increases awareness of sexual violence against women during wartime. This video is based on my interviews with Korean, Chinese, Taiwanese, Indonesian, Filipino, Dutch “comfort women” survivors, and a former Japanese soldier from W.W.II. The gathering of women to serve the Imperial Japanese Army was organized on an industrial scale not seen before in modern history. This project promotes awareness of these women, some of whom are still alive today, and brings to light a history which has been largely forgotten and denied. The title, COMFORT WOMEN WANTED, is a reference to the actual text of advertisements which appeared in Asian newspapers during the war. When advertising failed, young women from Korea, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, and the Netherlands were kidnapped or deceived and forced into sexual slavery. Most were teenagers, some as young as 11 years old, and were raped by as many as fifty soldiers a day at military rape camps, known as "comfort stations." By some estimates only 30% survived the ordeal. The "Comfort Women System" is considered the largest case of human trafficking in the 20th century. Historian Suzanne O'Brien has written that "the privileging of written documents works to exclude from history...the voices of the kind of people comfort women represent - the female, the impoverished, the colonized, the illiterate, and the racially and ethnically oppressed. These people have left few written records of their experiences, and therefore are denied a place in history." In the video, the Korean, Chinese, Taiwanese, Indonesian, Filipino, and Dutch “comfort women” survivors, and a former Japanese soldier talk about their experiences at the military comfort stations, as well as their everyday hopes and dreams and who they are as people. These women also sing their favorite traditional folk songs in Korean, Taiwanese, Chinese, Hakanese, Aboriginal Taiwanese, and Dutch. This presents the women as individuals rather than as victims and highlights the experiences we all share, in order to put these monumental events in context. These are the stories and voices of the survivors. Despite growing awareness of the issue of trafficking of women and of sexual slavery as a crime against humanity, this particular history has gone largely unacknowledged. COMFORT WOMEN WANTED attempts to bring to light this instance of organized violence against women, and to create a constructive dialogue for the future by acknowledging their place in history.

                      --- http://MovingPostcard.com --- The official name of the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin is "Denkmal für die Ermordeten Juden Europas" (Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe). It was designed by architect Peter Eisenman and engineer Buro Happold and officially inaugurated on May 10, 2005 - sixty years after the end of World War II. There are as many concrete slabs on the field as there are pages in the Talmud. In the underground museum there is a list of all known Jewish Holocaust victims. When talking to my German friends about the memorial, I realized there really isn't a German word for Holocaust besides the word itself, which I've never heard anyone say here. But that doesn't mean people aren't aware of the murder of the Jews, Romani, homosexuals and dissidents. The shame and guilt are still felt in the generations born long after the war and have a lasting effect on the national identity of Germans. I won't deny that I've seen signs of Neo-Nazis and racism in Germany today - but then I don't know which country doesn't have those kinds of people. The memorial is supposedly controversial but I personally have found every visit to be a very moving and fitting experience. Admittedly it was even more intense to experience this together with my Brooklyn friend Erica, whose mother (and therefor her) is Jewish. There are so many associations as you see the large field of grey stones. Then you walk in and you get lost, dioriented - the sky and the outside world seem to move further away - you don't know what is around the next corner, who may run into you - you hear voices, children laughing, their innocence today and back then, when the parents were terrified - the thought of all the voices lost... When putting together the video, I tried to capture some of the atmosphere through mixing music with other sounds. It was a little disappointing not to use footage I filmed last year of the memorial when there was a light rain making it look like tears were running down the gray concrete. But the footage was of such different quality and in the end I can't include everything anyway - I don't have any impressive aerial footage or shots at night when the memorial is lit up either. And I'm really trying to stick with just using current footage. For anyone paying attention to such details though: yes, Erica was visiting three weeks ago, which means the footage is from a few weeks ago and not from this week. But I thought it was such an important place I wanted to share it as a weekly video.
