Red Bull Music Academy has produced a fantastic documentary series called “Diggin’ In The Carts” about the secret history of Japanese video game music. Watch parts 1 and 2 below!
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 don’t know if I’m just extra emotional tonight or what, but I cried two times watching this video by director David Barnes. This kid’s honesty and the beautiful filming and editing, ahh it’s too much for me right now. A+

Ashrita Furman is the man with the most Guinness World Records of all time (nearly 400). This film by Brian McGinn follows Furman as he prepares to climb Machu Picchu on stilts.
I love everything about this documentary, my only complaint is that it’s much too short! This story deserves to be a full feature! I want to surround myself with people like Ashrita Furman, so full of life!
