So well done.
Don’t know why but post-apocalyptic areas are always fascinating.
I’ve stopped drinking out of plastic bottles. This is a good reminder to me on why that is a good choice.
There is a videoblog of Chris’ journey to midway.
This is an incredible series. These were my favorites:
Fightclub in the Silicon Valley.
Portraits of the men that volunteer to patrol the borders. Controversial but they need to be heard.
California is a Place website where you will find more great content.
This film gives a hard hitting, gritty insight into the life of 14 year old Kerry. Kerry has built herself a reputation and is regarded as one of the ‘popular’ girls at school. Sleeping with any boy who makes advances, drinking and smoking are common activities to Kerry all because she has no one at home to care for her, causing her to yearn attention from anyone, no matter how bad it is.
We need more films like this.
Exhilarating to say the least. Love the adventure, love the curiosity and knowledge that Steve Duncan possesses about the history of the city. Kudos to Andrew Wonder, the filmmaker, for ignoring a possible arrest to get these fantastic moments. Just a great piece.

I’d love to know what prime lens Pete uses alongside his zoom. Great look into the Presidency as well. I don’t envy those long hours.
Pretty in every which way.

I like how the video embraces the rhythm of the town.
Not for the faint of heart.
In 1980, Jimmy Carter established the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in the Alaskan Interior, cutting off 19 million acres of prime boreal wilderness from the mitts of fur trappers, oil tycoons, and would-be lodge owners alike. Only six families of white settlers were grandfathered in and allowed to keep cabins in the refuge—of them, only one still stays there year-round living off the land. His name is Heimo Korth, and he is basically the Omega Man of America’s Final Frontier.
A beautiful documentary on the lost art of painted advertising produced as part of The Ritual Project sponsored by Stella Artois and directed by Malcolm Murray.
