Blowing Up Mountains: Destroying the Environment for Coal

a report in English

Massive corporations are blowing up mountains and creating environmental ruins in West Virginia. All this devastation, just to extract some coal.

We went to West Virginia to investigate mountain-top removal -- which a way of extracting coal from deposits under mountains. Instead of drilling into the mountain and sending men underground to take out the coal in the traditional way, they just take the whole top of a mountain off.

Hosted by Derrick Beckles | Originally aired on http://VICE.com in 2009

Marijuana Minors

a report in English

Watch the first episode of SMOKEABLES: How to Make a Gravity Bong - http://bit.ly/28XSWBi

For more episodes of Weediquette, click here: http://bit.ly/1iVLbL7

Medical marijuana is legal in 20 states and the District of Columbia, but there are still use cases that are very controversial, like medical marijuana for children. Some claim it's a wonder drug for epilepsy, severe autism, and even to quell the harsh side effects of chemotherapy, while others decry pumping marijuana into still-growing bodies. We went to the small town of Pendleton, Oregon, where medical marijuana is legal, to visit Mykayla Comstock, an eight-year-old leukemia patient who takes massive amounts of weed to treat her illness. Her family, and many people we met along the way, believe not only in the palliative aspects of the drug, but also in marijuana's curative effect—that pot can literally shrink tumors.

This Day (feat. Winston Churchill)

a documentary in English

Music: M83
Speech: Excerpt from Winston Churchill's address to the Congress of the United States, December 26, 1941

"Sure I am that this day, now, we are the masters of our fate. That the task which has been set us is not above our strength. That its pangs and toils are not beyond our endurance. As long as we have faith in our cause, and an unconquerable willpower, salvation will not be denied us. In the words of the Psalmist: "He shall not be afraid of evil tidings. His heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord."

The Accidental Sea

a documentary in English

A short film about my favorite post-apocalyptic hell-hole, the Salton Sea.

Music composed by Michael Picton. Download the song on CD Baby:
http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/michaelpicton2

My equipment:
Canon 5DmkII
24mm lens & 100mm lens
Steadicam Merlin
Final Cut Studio & Color
An awesome composer named Michael Picton, who would probably object to being listed as "equipment" but also will probably not read this.

Also, to those considering a visit to the salton sea, be warned that it can get up to 110-120 degrees, you'll be far from a garage should you break down, and it can smell pretty awful. Late fall and early spring are much better times to go!

The Fight for the Muslim Vote: The British Election

a report in English

Ahead of the UK general election on May 7, VICE News explores voter apathy within the British Muslim community and finds out if issues such as the country's counterterrorism policy and Islamophobia are pushing young Muslims into disenfranchisement.

In the 2010 general election, a lower percentage of British Muslims voted than any other religious group. Despite being the fastest growing religion in the UK and boasting more young adherents than any other religion, it appears young Muslims are becoming more and more dissatisfied with the government.

VICE News speaks with Islamists who are rejecting voting and British society, those trying to get Muslims to vote, and those trying to win those votes. We meet with young Muslims to hear their opinions on the election and explore what influences them at a time when they are facing numerous challenges.

Good Grief

a documentary in English

As featured on: Upworthy, Vimeo Staff Picks, Short of the Week, Laughing Squid, The Awesomer, Sopitas and many more... (visit www.goodgrief.tv/press)

Good Grief is a short stop motion animated documentary that explores the lessons we learn from dealing with grief and loss. Five real people share their true stories of losing something precious and what it has taught them about living.

Made in 2012, Good Grief has screened at 19 festivals worldwide and won numerous awards. Inspired by the loss of her own mother and the grief that ensued, director Fiona Dalwood went about finding out how the experience of loss transforms us. With a shoestring budget and months of hard work, she made Good Grief, a beautiful short film that has been described as “adorable and heartfelt”. Accessible to children and adults alike, it is being used in educational programs as a starting point to discuss the process of grief and what some of the positive outcomes of grief can be.

Growth (2015)

a documentary in English

An exploration of the universality of growing up through the eyes of those who have experienced it first hand. Captured entirely from above and featuring over 75 unique individuals, this short meditative documentary explores the complexity, subtlety, and beauty of growing up.

Last summer, I was commissioned by television brand VIZIO to create a film that would showcase the visual possibilities of 4K storytelling. What started as a commercial opportunity for "branded content" quickly blossomed into one of the most artistically and personally fulfilling projects I've ever been a part of.

GROWTH will be available to stream in 4K HDR exclusively on VIZIO 4K Televisions later this year.
