Rev Up Your Creativity and Cameras for the 24 Hour Film Race!

 


How fast are you at creating a film from scratch? What's been billed for the past few years as "the ultimate creative challenge" is coming up May 18-19, and it's the 24 Hour Film Race. You must write and shoot a 4-minute film in just 24 hours (oh, and you're given the raw ingredients that you have to include in your film, so you can't come up with something in advance and get a headstart). If you're interested, click here to register to win cash, prizes, and lots of attention. Here's the winner from last year's competition (click here to watch all 2011 winners).

Movies for Photographers - Side By Side


Still photography has made the transition from film to digital, but many of us still use film in our craft. The new documentary Side By Side, which debuted at the 11th annual Tribeca Film Festival (an 11-day event that featured an astounding 149 films), is the moviemaker's parallel universe.

Host Keanu Reeves interviewed an impressive array of directors - like George Lucas, David Lynch, David Fincher, Christopher Nolan, Martin Scorsese, Richard Linklater, Jill Bogdanowicz, and Greta Gerwig - to discuss the evolving role of traditional film and the digital camera revolution in the film industry ... not to mention new technologies that are coming into play (Peter Jackson's use of 48-frames-per-second footage versus the traditional 24 to give ultra-clear, startling images for his upcoming The Hobbit comes to mind). The following trailer gives you a good introduction to this indie of interest to all filmmakers and photographers.

How-to Photography Video - Travel Photography that Tells a Story

Photos: © Jeff Johnson 2011. All Rights Reserved.
Photographers love to document where they've been and what they've seen, and tell stories about the people they've met along the way. If you're traveling down the street for a sweet-light outing or hopping a plane to get to the other side of the globe, you'll be bringing your gear and your desire to take unique photographs. Marc Silber interviewed Patagonia photographer Jeff Johnson (see photos above) to learn more about his travel photography experience and the approach he takes, preferring to tell a story and take a more photojournalistic approach ... versus just shooting pretty pictures.
