John Deere • Farming is in Their Blood

John Deere is helping farmers adapt with precision technology that connects people, equipment and technology to make a good farm even better. To let the world know about, we went to Clear Meadow Farm in White Hall, Maryland and documented one family's multi-generational story. The key was to make the story feel authentic, so other farmers would connect emotionally. The Rose family let us into their homes and their lives for three days while we captured their spirit. Shoot details: 3 day shoot 5 person crew [from Racepoint Global agency in Boston] 2 Sony A7riis, 1 Movi M5, and a small assortment of Sony Batis lenses 1 Drone I served as a videographer, main editor and colorist on this project.

HOME LIVES INSIDE US

Home lives inside us depicts the reality of four homeless people through objects that are part of the environment they live in. Seen from a different angle, these objects show what can still be considered “home” in the lives of Aloísio, Marlon, Lenice and Alex. These four citizens are invisible to society, but these objects reveal the desire for humanization expressed in their improvised homes, among a large city’s many adversities With an unpublished text by Tarso de Melo, a distinguished poet of the latest writers’ generation of São Paulo, Home lives inside us is an extremely urban narrative, simultaneously raw and sensitive. In it, objects represent one of contemporaneity’s most serious problems: housing, in a context in which human beings are disposable objects, often invisible.

The Ballot or the Bullet | An American Portrait

As a Canadian traveling through Baltimore and Washington during the time of the Trump election, I noticed a lot of things that stood out to me. The anger, aggression and divide between the political parties, the extremely evident racial separation and the stark contrast between the rich and the poor. These things were all incredibly prominent as we drove through the streets of these cities. I wanted to create a video that would not only show this, but also deliver a message that to me, all this divide and anger does not make any sense. In the world that we live in today, we need more love and compassion, we need more understanding for each other and we need to make a change.

Reclaimed Lights - ARP - Celebration Chandelier

xxxxx offers an insight into the craft and work of the immensely talented London based British designer/artist Alkesh Parmar who turns discarded scrap materials into amazing sculptures of lights, this short film explores Alkesh's practice, presenting the work of his recent project - Celebration Chandelier. His work often utilises banal everyday objects, most of the time these materials are discarded after use such as the champagne corks used for this chandelier. “The notion of recycling is an important part to my practice, however this is not my prime objective.” The central point of his work is light and the relationship it shares with the objects. The corks are hollowed out and outfitted with LED bulbs, programmed with circuitry which then customised to various interiors including restaurants, bars and homes. Each cork is hand crafted into individual lamps and grouped together to form a neutral, warm and beautiful chandelier. --- Designer/Artist: Alkesh Parmar Directed &

on my knees, like an orphan

For this short film "on my knees, like an orphan," I shot with the Sony Fs5 and 6500 and two different iPhones. In post, I used several stocks FilmConvert stocks to create looks with meaning. The stories tied together with "Life, Life" -- a song from Ryuichi Sakamoto's new record, music which he has shared as part of the |async International Short Film Contest. Because I live in a city, I fight for nature. And every time I am in nature, I do feel the awe. So that is why I named this short film from final lines of the poem: "I dedicate myself, on my knees, like an orphan, Alone - among mirrors - fenced in by reflections: Cities and seas, iridescent, intensified. A mother in tears takes a child on her lap." David Sylvain's resonant voice gives emotional force to these words were written by Aseny Tarkovsky, the poet and father of Andrei Tarkovsky, the filmmaker to whom the Ryuichi Sakamoto | async - International short film competition project is dedicated.

Lost in Cuba

Cuba is a very different place, you arrive there with absolutely no idea of what to expect and every single moment, you're finding something new for yourself - uncover an alternative reality of the world around you. Cuba is a unique place with wonderful people. This is the one thing that really stuck in our minds and hearts - People are merry and very grateful. Cuban people have an enormous weight on their shoulders and their lives are far away from being simple or easy, but despite everything, they still always sincerely smile and are always willing to help and give. Their internal strength is truly inspiring. We've made real friends and met men and women whom we've known for a very long time, knowing them just for a few seconds. I invite you to look into the lives of some of the people that we were lucky to meet during our trip.

Working the Sea

'Working the Sea' follows the fortunes of the Bagwells, a Sidmouth fishing family from the forties when young Stan was fishing with his father in a borrowed boat, to the nineties when they have two fish shops, two trawlers fishing out of Brixham, and three boats working off the beach at Sidmouth. Then, tragedy strikes and the women of the family pick up the pieces. The film also weaves the contemporary users of the coast, from the sailing club to the lifeboat, into the narrative. So this is ultimately a film about community spirit and how a mutual love of and respect for the sea draws people together. 'This stunning film: fascinating and inspiring, funny and humbling is a powerful reminder how lucky we are on the coast'.
