MOVE | A NEVER BEFORE SEEN FILM | Action Cam | Sony

a dance video in no language

Dancer Mela Sierra, aka Mela Murder, teams up with violinist Damien Escobar in a performance that challenges the clichés of what we expect from hip hop. Set in Weylin B. Seymour’s, the beautifully restored former Williamsburg Savings Bank, Director Jordan May uses the Action Cam by Sony to bring us an entirely new view of this dance form.

How it was made:
Action Cams were attached to the head, waist and abdomen of Mela as she danced, providing angles that are fascinating in it’s abstraction. Action Cams were also mounted to Damien and his violin. His powerful music, combined with Mela’s visceral movements in the ornate environment created a beautiful contrast that paints an entirely different image of hip hop. The Director of Photography, Jordan Kelly used the camera’s high resolution to it’s full advantage. The high resolution allowed him the freedom to crop into the footage in editing. The team also utilized the 120 fps feature of the Action Cam to capture Mela’s movements in slow motion. The performance is an original choreography by Mela and the song, Freedom, is an original composition by Damien. Mela Sierra, aka Mela Murder, has choreographed for and toured with Diplo and Major Lazer. Damien Escobar is an Emmy winning violinist who tours around the world.

How Hackers Could Wirelessly Bug Your Office

a report in English

You think about securing your laptop, but what about your desk phone, monitor, or printer?

In the second episode of Can I Hack It?, made possible by Mr Robot on Amazon Prime, white hat hacker Ang Cui demonstrates hacks on “embedded devices”—objects that contain computing systems but that you wouldn’t necessarily think of as computers.

At his office in New York, Cui shows us how he can turn an office phone or printer into a bugging device using a piece of malware he calls “funtenna.” This exploit makes the equipment transmit data over radio frequencies so it can be picked up by an antenna—without the hacker ever having to go near the device.

It’s a pretty high-level hack, but as Cui says, if he’s thought of it, you can imagine someone else has.

Noc na Tanečku (Night at the Dance)

a documentary in English

In the late 1800’s, tens of thousands of Czech immigrants settled farmland in Central Texas. They brought with them the tradition of the community dance hall, building over 1,000 halls in little towns from Temple to Anhalt. Fewer than half remain open today. Noc na Tanečku (Night at the Dance) profiles Sefcik Hall, in Seaton, one of the last true Czech dance halls in Texas, and the elderly folk that still come there each Sunday to wax the floor and dance the polka, even as they struggle with old age, illness, and in some cases, death.
