Changeover: A Short Documentary

a documentary in English

Follow Us Here





Changeover is the story of Bill Frankhouser, a life-long projectionist, who owns a drive-in theater with his wife Barb in rural Pennsylvania. Bill and Barb are caught in the middle of a transition in their trade. In 2014 it will be nearly impossible to get a first run feature film on 35mm print. The film industry’s switch to digital projection means that thousands of independent theaters will have to replace their film projectors with new, expensive digital ones. Before shutting the machines down forever, Bill gathers his friends to watch one last night of film presentation. He muses about what the change will mean to him, his business, and his community, and he bids an emotional farewell to the machines that have been with him for his entire career.

Timelapse - Porto In Motion

a documentary in no language

41° 9′ 0″ N, 8° 36′ 40″ W - O Porto é uma cidade que me fascina e motiva para o registo de fotografia e em especial do timelapse. Há cerca de 6 meses atrás, produzi o timelapse "O'Porto" visivel em https://vimeo.com/106545628. Logo após a sua publicação fiquei com a sensação de que era preciso mais. Era necessário ir a locais onde normalmente não se vai. Era necessário fotografar dos seus pontos mais altos, conseguindo com isso uma perspectiva diferente. Pese embora alguns contratempos, consegui terminar este trabalho. Para a concretização deste video, foi necessário registar cerca de 10420 fotografias, percorrer algumas ruas da cidade de metro em metro, subir a edificios altos quer por elevador, quer pelas escadas, carregar bastante equipamento (nomeadamente máquinas fotograficas e diversas objectivas) o Stage One e Stage R. Foi necessário viver alguns momentos hilariantes, outros nem por isso...houve oportunidade para falar com pessoas que mesmo estando nesses espaços, nunca tinham "olhado" para a cidade a partir desses locais... mas mesmo depois de tudo isto o mais importante é o resultado final. E esse resultado está aqui disponivel para quem gosta de ver o tempo e os momentos numa perspectiva diferente. Como alguém que muito prezo dizia há alguns dias atrás, "...o tempo somos nós que o fazemos...". Aqui fica o "meu tempo" dedicado ao Porto.

41° 9′ 0″ N, 8° 36′ 40″ W - Oporto is a city that fascinates and motivates me for photo recording and especially the timelapse. About 6 months ago, I produced the timelapse "O'Porto" available in https://vimeo.com/106545628. Immediately after its publication I got the feeling that more was needed. I must go to places where people usually do not go there. It was necessary shoot their highest points, achieving with this a different perspective. Despite some setbacks, I managed to finish this job. To achieve this video, it was necessary register about 10,420 photos, walk along some streets of the city subway by subway, climb the high buildings either by lift or stairs, carry a lot of equipment (including photographic machines and several lenses), the Stage One e Stage R. It was necessary to live some hilarious moments, others not so funny at all... I had the opportunity to talk to people that even though in these spaces, never had "looked" to the city from these places... but even after all this the most important is the final result. And this result is available here for those who like to watch the time and moments from a different perspective. As someone that I value said a few days ago, "Here is" my time "dedicated to Oporto."

High in Colorado: Der Cannabis-Goldrausch

a report in German

Die Stadt Denver liegt genau eine Meile über dem Meeresspiegel und nennt sich deshalb "Mile High City". Seit Anfang des Jahres ist Denver allerdings auch in anderer Hinsicht "high" - denn der Bundesstaat Colorado hat den Verkauf von Marihuana legalisiert. Kifferbuden, Hanfplantagen und Headshops schießen seitdem aus dem Boden. Ein Drogen-Goldrausch im sonst so prüden Amerika.
