"Shot in what could pass for a prison cell, Momentum, by Boris Seewald, delivers a highly original and side-splitting take on the transformative power of dance, using the filming and editing techniques of MTV-style music videos but with far more subtlety and imagination, and an irresistible streak of lunacy. Starting with a simple but hilarious premise involving a tortilla chip, the film celebrates the magnetic Patrick Hanna, a young dancer with a mischievous twinkle in his eye, who entices his middle-aged mother, played by Shoko Ito, into his surreal dance world."
Huffington Post

“Taking a simple story with a universal message and injecting it with energy and warmth, Seewald has created a short film bound to inspire and entertain its audience.”
Short Of The Week

“Momentum is not just an ode to dancing passion, it’s a way of life, a way of living every bit of it.
Epic Short Films

“The film is a fresh and surprising celebration of dance: the fun and enthusiasm radiate from there.”
Cinedans – Dance on Screen

“Inventive, original, honest, and witty, Momentum has great energy and refreshes the genre with youthful vigor. Seewald demonstrates a confident use of the film medium to convey the power and depth of the dance experience.”
San Francisco Dance Film Festival

“Boris Seewald [...] demonstrated that dance films can be hilariously entertaining.[...] It was so refreshing to see a dance film that wasn’t filled with drama and angst”
Heather Desaulniers (Dance critic and PhD in dance history)

“I really loved Momentum like a breath of un self-conscious fresh air.”
Jon Harris – Editor (Snatch, 127 Hours, Kick-Ass, Trance)

“What an engaging character! [...] incredibly polished and beautiful imagery.”
Olivia Coleman – Actress

The Record Breaker

a documentary in English


a film by Brian McGinn

The Record Breaker tells the life story of Ashrita Furman, the man with the most Guinness World Records of all time.

Winner of the Vimeo Audience Award at the 2013 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival and Jury Prizes at the 2012 Palm Springs International ShortsFest, the 2013 New Orleans Film Festival, and the 2014 Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, The Record Breaker follows Furman as he trains to set a new record: climbing Machu Picchu on stilts.

'A swimmingly edited, life-affirming film. Genuinely touching.'
— Robert Silva, IndieWire

'Hands-down the funniest documentary of the year.'
— Marianna Torgovnick, TED

'An ode to human obsession, dedication and monumental silliness.'
— Lena Dystant, Selectism

'A complex appraisal of a fascinating individual...McGinn's film excels because it does more than just focus on Furman’s unconventional hobby. As emotionally complex as it is gloriously ludicrous.'
— Ivan Kander, Short Of The Week

When to use "me", "myself" and "I" - Emma Bryce

a lecture in English

View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/when-to-use-me-myself-and-i-emma-bryce

Me, myself, and I. You may be tempted to use these words interchangeably, because they all refer to the same thing. But in fact, each one has a specific role in a sentence: ‘I’ is a subject pronoun, ‘me’ is an object pronoun, and ‘myself’ is a reflexive or intensive pronoun. Emma Bryce explains what each role reveals about where each word belongs.
