Best of Kickstarter: Gennadiy

Gennadiy documentary

Gennadiy runs an orphanage in Mariupal, Ukraine, and for 13 years he has been going on night time raids to rescue, and even force, kids off the street. His methods may be a little controversial, but I can’t help but be inspired by this guy’s passion.

The team behind this film previously won the Grand Jury price at Sundance with their film “Blood Brother”, and now have composer Atticus Ross (known for his work collaborating with Trent Reznor on “The Social Network” and “Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”) on board to score this film. The music you hear in this trailer was composed by Atticus and his brother Leopold Ross.

Phoenix “Trying To Be Cool”

Phoenix Trying To Be Cool music video directed by CANADA
This is my early pick for video of the year (and possibly the last few years). Director collective CANADA teamed up with The Creators Project for one of the most ambitious music videos in recent memory. The footage was captured live, by two separate film crews, and the shots continuously alternate between the two crews.

A countdown clock is visible in many of the shots, it was used to tell each crew how long they had to film their scene while the other prepared to capture the next. This concept is pure madness, and I love the energy in the final product because of it.
