I was contacted by Bruce and Mathieu about their film KEEP EXPLORING and I had to share it with you. Enjoy the doc and make sure you read Mathieu’s article about the production after the video.
I really enjoyed this op-doc this morning and thought I would share it with you. The visuals and original narration make it a great watch. Vimeo Description
After the writer and theologian John Hull became completely blind in 1983, he kept an audio diary of his experience. This film is a dramatization using those recordings.
Bobby Goulding recently contacted me about his upcoming film called Moving the Sun. After watching the trailer I had to share it with you guys. It is now in production with filming beginning in January and the Kickstarter only has 1 week left to get the project funded. Lets help him get there!
POV (a PBS show about documentaries and filmmaking) asked me to join a Google+ panel event called Doc Chat. I was joined by Professor Duy Linh Tu of Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism to demo gear and answer viewer questions. The live hangout went very well and we covered a lot of great questions.

These days, there are so many great cameras on the market, which is why I had such a difficult time last year deciding upon which one to purchase to shoot the Korean documentary “Sedae”. Originally I wanted to get a video camera, since video is my primary purpose, but flexibility with time lapse was also needed to tell the story of “Sedae”. In that regard, DSLRs are superior. However, I wasn’t ready to commit to a DSLR. I would shoot with them, and loved the images, but still felt limited since it was missing many of the features that I wanted from a video camera. Once I was ready to buy a camera though, the Sony a99 came on the market, and it convinced me of its ability to do video.
Found this short documentary on Vimeo last week. Really enjoyed it’s clean, simple and elegant flow. Also check out the Cars I See Vimeo profile for a couple other videos.

This is a story of one man’s 28 year journey to own a Porsche 930. Jim Goodlett’s 1984 grey market 930 Turbo is a beautiful example of a classic Porsche 911, but it also represents the accomplishment of a goal he set for himself as a young man who could only dream of one day owning this supercar.
Many thanks to Jim Goodlett for sharing his time and his story.
Found this awesome little doc shot on Canon DSLRs. Goes to show with an interesting story, some friends, and a couple cameras you can share a story thousands would have otherwise never experienced.
A documentary about skateboarding in Shanghai.

Today’s like is a documentary I saw a couple of weeks ago that is in my top 5 docs list. Don’t be fooled by the title, The Parking Lot Movie is a profoundly deep philosophical look at humanity from the perspective of a couple of parking lot attendants. So check out the trailer below, visit the website to grab the full doc on DVD, and enjoy this hilarious and well done documentary.
