This short, done by The Atlantic, reveals racism that cost many Black farmers their land through the years

Until I watched thus report, I had no idea how many black farmers there were in this country. Literally, generations of land owners and all with the same issues…haters! Over the course of the 20th century, black Americans have lost approximately 12 million acres of land. This mass land dispossession—a war waged by deed ofContinue reading “This short, done by The Atlantic, reveals racism that cost many Black farmers their land through the years”

Matthew Freidell breaks down the Tarot in this clever short “After the Fall”

I have always been fascinated by the tarot! I love seeing how they can be interpreted and by whom. I’ve always wondered if I was worthy. I also have wondered if I had the balls. The future is not for the faint of heart…Ronald Reagan, not me. When I first watched this short, I hadContinue reading “Matthew Freidell breaks down the Tarot in this clever short “After the Fall””

An android Bonnie and Clyde story emerges in The Trail’s End

I received an email containing a link to this unique film called The Trail’s End today. The story, written and directed by David Rosenbaum, puts two human-like androids in an 1930’s-1940’s setting and surrounds them in a Barton Fink-like scenario.  The Trails End kinda picks up where say…Blade Runner left off. The android character Clyde,Continue reading “An android Bonnie and Clyde story emerges in The Trail’s End”

Short film The Gunfighter is like The Assasination of Jesse James…on WEED

I must start browsing Vimeo Staff Picks more often. This short film, The Gunfighter, directed by Eric Kissack and written by Kevin Tenglin is a brilliant comedy! The story is a spoof, of sorts, to some of those Ken Burns documentaries and other History Channel goings on, where there’s always narration to a dramatic historicalContinue reading “Short film The Gunfighter is like The Assasination of Jesse James…on WEED”

HIGH MAINTENANCE is the best web series I have ever seen

Leave it to my friend Jason Martin, to have a friend, that’s cool enough to share this amazing series with him, thus sharing it with me… still with me? I had no idea what to expect when I got the email from my friend telling me about this amazing show/web series, about a cannabis dealerContinue reading “HIGH MAINTENANCE is the best web series I have ever seen”

Candy Cigarettes stands out among many bedroom acts

I always find it amazing when I hear music that’s created in a bedroom studio. It always has a cozy, warm aesthetic that’s much more listenable than any other genre I find. Perfume Genius and Youth Lagoon have really captured the essence of bringing the music from the bedroom (or a friends) to life. WithContinue reading “Candy Cigarettes stands out among many bedroom acts”

Watch The Green Ruby Pumpkin and know what Halloween is!

It is because films like this that I love Halloween! Directed by CGI animators Miguel Ortega (Jack The Giant Killer, THOR) and Tran Ma (Alice In Wonderland, G.I. Joe) The Ruby Green Pumpkin is a delight in that way that years from now you’ll be asking yourself “remember that one Halloween story…yeah that one. Wasn’tContinue reading “Watch The Green Ruby Pumpkin and know what Halloween is!”

VFX artists Miguel Ortega and Tran Ma, Kickstart a visually stunning cryptozoology adventure The Ningyo

Got an email from Miguel Ortega, this amazing VFX artist we did a story on awhile back. In it he told us about a new project he’s working on, that he’s trying to get some crowd funding to complete. My immediate response to the letter was “YES!” and “How can I help?” All this andContinue reading “VFX artists Miguel Ortega and Tran Ma, Kickstart a visually stunning cryptozoology adventure The Ningyo”

Trailer for Ben Wheatley’s “A Field in England” is pure arthouse crazy

I’ve seen fan-made trailers like this before, but most never see the light of day, but this bit of magic compliments of Julian House at Intro-Partnership is what Cinephiles, like myself, drool over. This trailer alone, is enough to warrant a screening at The Cinefamily. It has that 60’s psychedelica/horror vibe and when you readContinue reading “Trailer for Ben Wheatley’s “A Field in England” is pure arthouse crazy”

The Most Badass 12 Year Olds Ever

We’re told as kids to ‘dream big’ and we believe it. We all wanted to be astronauts, skateboarders, spies, movie stars, and rockstars, but how many 6th graders have 720k views on a Vimeo video? These two metal heads from Flatbush, New York are real dream chasers. Their in a band named Unlocking The Truth,Continue reading “The Most Badass 12 Year Olds Ever”
