Saturday morning the New York Film Festival brought its audience a spectacular restoration of the epic spectacle from 1959, Ben-Hur. And it still is a spectacle but in the best of ways. Seeing this film only confirms my belief of how important it is to screen films like this in theaters, on a big screen...

Last Friday, which in internet years is long, long ago, I ran in the rain to The Paley Center to check out Doc U: Global Impact – Docs as Tools of Change. The panel, moderated by International Documentary Association (IDA) Executive Director, Milton Tabbot, was brought to the center by way of IDA and the Independent Filmmaker Project (IFP).

During this holiday season, I watched a handful of documentaries, via iTunes and my new BluRay player (Thank you, Santa!). The few I caught on iTunes included Sexy Baby by Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus and The Invisible War by Kirby Dick. Although Sexy Baby and The Invisible War are two very different films, they do have commonality...

The word "media", according to Steve Schultz (CEO and Founder, Moveable Feast Mobile Media) is anything that has an audience. I like that definition. It’s broad, but feels accurate in this day and age. Media, in it’s increasingly numerous forms, was the trending topic of discussion at the first day of New York Film Festival's...

The documentary Side By Side (2012), now at theaters, on VOD and on iTunes is an interesting exploration of photo-chemical filmmaking versus digital moving image making at a moment in time where the two co-exist. That is not to say they won’t continue to co-exist, but it’s not to say they will either. It depends [...]

Technicolor, Paramount's VistaVision Technicolor no less, was to color film nothing short of spectacular. Add this phenomenon of saturation to one of the most beautiful faces in cinema and you have pure heaven, which is pretty much how I would describe the newly DCP restoration of Stanley Donen's 1957 film version of the Gershwin Broadway...

Of course it's not nearly as romantic as Helen Van Dongen made it look (pictured below). I don't work in an all window light and shadow filled office with film bins on one side of the room next to a Moviola, but I like to pretend it's like that sometimes. Of course I'm probably not...

The dreaded General Error popped up a few days ago. I usually don't blog about technical issues. I leave more technically driven and better written blogs for that, but this really effected the project I'm working on for several days and resulted in much frustration, but it did prove to a learning experience as well...

I finally registered for a Super 8 filmmaking workshop. Yes, you read correctly. In the digital age we live in, Super 8 may not be as convenient and often thought of as what old or long deceased relatives used, but it sure is pretty and in certain emerging, growing subcultures it's also alive and well...

As a freelancer, time management is something I continue to struggle with. Between editing and post-production work to non-profit management to film preservation volunteer work, my hands are full. Not that I'm complaining because I love what I do, but it does require continual reassessing priorities and rescheduling, depending on the day, week or month...

It's been a little while since the New York Film Festival wrapped (10/16/11 to be exact) but I'm still going to add a little something about the Views from the Avant-Garde. My Part II, even if a bit late in coming. As I mentioned in Part I, the lineup I attended was Cabinet of Curiosities, [...]
