1. Harun Farocki was one of the most inspiring artists I have ever met. Video art will not be the same without him. The scene is mourning with all his friends and family. We will miss him.

  4. Indie Doc needs your support

    Dear Friends,                                                                                                      (Deutsche Version s.u.)


    As many of you may already know, my team and I are planning to create an
    experimental documentary about the vultures of India and their relationship to the Parsi people,
    titled REQUIEM FOR A BIRD.
     
    We are happy to announce the launch of our Facebook page, where you can like us, get updates on the project, and learn more of the story:
    https://www.facebook.com/pages/Requiem-for-a-Bird/249406181850514?ref_type=bookmark
    And if Facebook isn’t your cup of tea, then follow us on Twitter:

    Two big events lie ahead of us; the OneSpark Crowdfunding Festival in Berlin and the launch of our Indiegogo campaign in August.
    With OneSpark, a jury choses only 50 projects from hundreds to showcase this year’s festival. 
    Their biggest criteria is social media, so ever thumbs up and follower counts!
     Our submission deadline is the August 1, so we need all of you to help give us a boost.

    Most importantly we will launch our Indiegogo campaign to raise production funds on August 25,
    so we invite you to share this message with every film/doc/nature- loving  friend, parent, Grandma, aunt, boss, ex-boss, and so on, you have.
     

    Your support means so much, and your action as a multiplier helps us to gain
    the attention and funds necessary to complete a successful campaign.

    Hope to see you on facebook and twitter,

    cylixe & the RFAB crew

    Imagineering Disney:  “You’ll notice in the above diagram that the “ghosts” were on a revolving track lined up with the Doombuggies on the opposite side of what look like normal mirrors. Light reflecting off human guests would reflect off the surface of the mirrors. At the same time light shining on the hitchhikers behind the mirrors would be visible through the mirrors, allowing both ghosts and humans to be seen together. Get it? It’s like walking by a highly reflective office building and seeing yourself in the windows and seeing electric lights inside the building all at the same time.The right lighting conditions were needed to pull off the illusion. If the house lights in the room behind the mirrors were to turn on, the mirrors from the other side would look more or less like clear glass.
