Video of the Day: “Speed Dating” by Meghann Artes


Quirky short by award-winning filmmaker/animator, Meghann Artes. Especially love her use of handmade elements and bright colours. Artes’ hybrid animation/live-action style (which involves frame by frame pixilation using Dragonframe software, 2 Macs, and multiple cameras) also gives it a really fun, cartoony-vibe. Watch “Speed Dating” below!

“Chi Raq” Documentary Film By Photographer Will Robson-Scott

Chi Raq - Documentary film by Will Robson-Scott

My friend photographer Will Robson-Scott told me a little bit about his documentary “Chi Raq” when I was with him in Australia earlier this year. It feels like it’s been a long time since then, so I was excited yesterday when he told me it was finally online!

This is an intimate portrait of life in South and West Chicago. I had no idea it was one of the most dangerous cities in America.

Watch the entire “Chi Raq” film below!
