This weeks Monday Like pick is this great little piece by Amsterdam World Wide. Its been out for a while, but I missed getting it on the site. Every time I see this video, I get an itch to get out of the studio and go make something. I hope you enjoy.
I had a chance to sit down with director Kevin Otterness a while back and talk about what he is up to and many other topics. We covered breaking into film, film education, whether film school is important or not, gear, and how to find and create story. For more information on what Kevin is up to, check out his blog, and/or follow him on twitter @KevinOtterness.
This is another great little piece by Drea Cooper & Zackary Canepari of California is a Place.
This micro doc is a very unique one. I am not condoning it, but I found it quite curious. After you watch the video I’d like to hear what you think about it.
“In Silicon Valley we have the highest concentration of aggressive people in the United States. And it’s a place where all life has been reduced to working in a cubicle and then after work going out to have a Merlot at the Fromage bar. I’m kind of looking for something a little more primitive, a little more basic, something that appeals to the essential nature of a man.”
