Best of Kickstarter: “1050.6(c) against Showtime” Film by Scott Carthy

newyork-subway-panhandlers

Director Scott Carthy beautifully documents the divisive subculture of subway car performers in this 7-min short documentary. From what I can gather 1050.6(c) is the section of the New York Transit code that states panhandling and performing on trains is prohibited.

Scott is hoping to raise funds through Kickstarter to shoot a longer, more in depth, film about these dancers. Watch the 7-min short film below!

I haven’t been this excited for a film in a really long time. Richard Linklater’s film “Boyhood” was filmed over the course of 12 years with the same cast. It looks incredible. The film stars Ellar Coltrane, Ethan Hawke, and Patricia Arquette among others. Watch the trailer for the film below.

“Yosemite” by Photographer Ian Ruhter

ian-ruhter-yosemite

That little guy up on that cliff there is one of the most passionate photographers I’ve ever met. His name is Ian Ruhter and unless you’ve been living under a rock you’re already familiar with his Silver and Light project that’s seen his life savings become an old delivery truck / giant mobile camera. If this is news to you watch this, and this, and read about the time I met him in Vancouver.

Ian’s latest film sees him, and his co-conspirators Lane and Will, return to Yosemite a year and a half after what Ian calls his biggest failure in his life. “Yosemite” is a huge milestone in Ian’s inspiring project. Watch the video below!
