Vimeo’s world revolves around videomakers, not advertisers.

and

Vimeo continues to be the destination for content creators and viewers looking for cutting-edge videos, beautiful playback, and a remarkably positive community.

User-centric focus.

A small production company called Stillmotion led a workshop, “Proactive Storytelling Instead of Reactive Coverage,” with tips and advice for documentary filmmakers, but their backstory was its own lesson. They started out shooting wedding videos (sometimes considered a just day job by snobbish filmmakers) with basic tools and a small team. Their vignettes caught the eye of ESPN, who hired them to film The Season, a TV series about the NFL. Now, they’re producing a feature-length documentary, A Game of Honor, about the Army-Navy football rivalry, for CBS. And they’re still making wedding videos.

Just fantastic.

First watch Limbo as mentioned before and then this VimeoFest discussion with director Eliot Rausch and Festival Director Jeremy Boxer.

More sessions from VimeoFest is available. Gonna take up most of my free time this weekend.

In addition to premiering his new film, “LIMBO,” at the Festival this year, Eliot Rausch talked with Festival Director Jeremy Boxer about how winning the Grand Prize in 2010 changed his life and made this new work possible. This session also includes screenings of “LIMBO” and “Last Minutes with Oden,” the film that won Eliot the Grand Prize.

The rear-view picture-in-picture (with disclaimer) is a nice touch.

I’ve always wondered what this was like. It always seems to be a little Willy Wonka in there.

For all you AV nerds out there; A once in a lifetime trip around the conveyor system at B&H Photo in New York City.

For digital diehards, B&H is a mecca of SLR cameras, lenses, computers, editing tools, and everything you could possibly want to produce media. I’ve visited B&H many times, and spent a lot of dough. In the used equipment section is a zoom lens for $250,000.

There are few places like B&H in the world, and even the Apple Store looks anemic in comparison.

B&H is also on Tumblr

Source Data for Photography/12:31 (by Croix Gagnon)

This animation represents the entire data set (1,871 slices) of the male cadaver from the Visible Human Project. The animation was played fullscreen on a computer, which was moved around by an assistant while being photographed in a dark environment. The resulting images are long-exposure “light paintings” of the entire cadaver. Variations in the movement of the computer during each exposure created differences in the shape of the body throughout the series.

Incredible. More info, as well as some stunning images, @ Project 12:31.

Creation requires influence.

Or as I’ve repeated from elsewhere: "Creativity is the art of concealing your sources.” Check out Part 1. And also consider donating. Though I’m sure he’d do well at Kickstarter (looks like that’s starting soon.)
