Journey Around The World In Under 5 Minutes

I have long been working on a film about a man who walks around the world. Maybe the walking has been the problem. It’s slow food for a fast food world. Perhaps the film should have been this instead…

17 Countries. 343 Days. 6237 Photographs.

WARNING: this short will make you want to quit your day job and travel.

Thanks to ThisIsColossal for the tip.

The Beauty Of The World (and Technology)

We were just in Siem Reap in Cambodia breathing in all the truly amazing temples.  It is truly one of the great sites.   I feel so fortunate that we got to take this trip.  I fear such travel will soon be a thing of the past (so to speak…).
Sitting in my hotel room this morning, reading the paper online, browsing the web, I came across the World Heritage Tour website.  It shows off the glory of technology pretty darn well too.  I have it set for Angkor but you can use it to visit many incredible places, including where we just were, and look 360 degrees, zoom in and out and all that jazz.   
Our trip was covered by a speaking engagement, but with the current price of travel and all the chaos peak oil will bring, this website is pretty swell toy to travel from your chair.

Transforming The Neighborhood



In my dreams, NYC transforms overnight.  Manhattan is no longer the island of the super-rich.  The ubiquitous advertising is gone.  Everything is art.  In fact it looks a lot like The Heidelberg Project outside of Detroit.  This alone is a reason for a trip to Michigan.

The Heidelberg Project was started in response to the homes left abandoned after the ’67 Detroit Riots.  Tyree Guyton (and his wife and father) got the kids together and went-a-decorating.  It’s truly inspiring.

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
