Nine Views of the Ordinaires: A radio documentary

For one fleeting moment in the summer of 1989, college radio, MTV, classic rock, and the avant-garde intersected when The Ordinaires, a nine-piece orchestral art-rock band from New York City, summoned the ghosts of ‘70s stadium-rock bombast with an infamous cover tune. And after a decade surviving near-death experiences and religious condemnation, the band was about to face its most formidable obstacle: itself. This is the story of a time and a place never to be repeated, in which an unlikely group of people made a most unusual noise. These are Nine Views of the Ordinaires. (59m) [more inside]

Live / Play: League of Legends documentary

What do an autoline fisherman in Iceland, a robot maker in Korea, a costume designer in Brazil, an intern in Egypt and an aspiring professional gamer in the US by way of Canada have in common? They are the five players, from a monthly user-base of 70 million, featured in Live/Play - a 38 minute documentary film I directed and edited about League of Legends players around the globe. In the interest of full disclosure, yes, this film was funded by Riot Games but I got the thumbs up to post it here.

DEFCON: The Documentary is Released

In February of 2012, I was in Helsinki traveling with Rachel Lovinger when I was contacted by long time goon Russ Rogers. His question was simple: since DEFCON was coming up on the 20th anniversary, and I had been both an attendee and director of several technology-based documentaries, would I be interested in doing a documentary on DEFCON and its 20th year? I said I needed to think about it, but I really didn't have to think that long. A year and a half later, I put the finishing touches on a two hour movie and an hour of bonus footage, having spent the previous 18 months planning, shooting, organizing, editing, and just generally living this movie day in and day out. While we weren't able to cover every last aspect of DEFCON (and who really could?) I think you'll find there's something for everyone in the movie. It was done out of love And respect for this incredible event, I hope it brings a whole new appreciation of the special event DEFCON has every year. [more inside]

Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art School: The Documentary

After two years on the festival circuit, it is now available for all and sundry on Vimeo. Interviews with Akynos, Gal Friday, Amber Ray, Molly Crabappple, and more. NSFWish video and audio. Directed by Peter Bolte (14 min)

94 Elements - Our lives through the lens of the elements

94 Elements is a global filmmaking project based around the 94 naturally occurring elements, from Hydrogen to Plutonium. Award-winning and upcoming filmmakers each take one element as the basis for a human story around how it's used - watch the 2 minute trailer here and you can see the first film now on the project website. There are opportunities for upcoming filmmakers to win commissions to make new films for the project, such as this pitch at the Sheffield DocFest in June, and we've got great plans for some really interesting data-vis work around how we use our resources.

ShortWaveMusic 2012: Timbuktu

A short film documenting my recent trip across the Republic of Mali to record indigenous and regional music. After the kidnappings and murder in Timbuktu in December 2011, I had forfeited all plans to go to the northern half of the country ... until the day I was piled into a 4x4, completely unplanned, and swept away to Timbuktu as the personal guest of a Malian gendarme. This film documents my early work in Mali ... and the utterly unique experiences that awaited me in Timbuktu. [more inside]

The Pruitt-Igoe Myth: an Urban History

Premiering February 11th, a documentary film about Pruitt-Igoe – perhaps the most infamous and contentious urban failure in living memory. The buildings' violent implosions were famously cited as the moment marking "The Death of Modernist Architecture". But this real failure quickly took on mythical characteristics; its complex history reduced to bullet points. The real lesson, the film argues, is about the profound ways the American City changed in the 20th century. [more inside]
