YOU CAN NOT BUST THE KRUST


Phantoms In The Brain (Episode 2)
"Episode two of a two-part BBC-4 special program hosted by neurologist V.S. Ramachandran that explains his key findings in certain instances of brain damage that have long been viewed as mere curiosities by the scientific community. This episode focuses on prosopagnosia, the Capgras delusion, and temporal lobe epilepsy."

Removed: our short documentary was submitted to film festivals, and we had to take down our YouTube links, at their request. Thanks for watching & providing feedback, everyone.

Tough crowd... I guess my short didn't make the cut at GBS Film Fest.

Thanks, that was very nice. Great tone and interesting story. Missed a narrator, but I suppose the text was good enough. Best of luck with being an awesome film maker.

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it. That means a lot. I considered a narrator, but I feel like Jon is very succinct and poetic with his words. He's had a lot of time to reflect on all of this. Ultimately, to me, that felt compelling enough on its own to guide us through the film.

I watched Koyaanisqatsi last night. It was a very, very good movie.
The cinematographer for Koyaanisqatsi did his own movie called "Baraka" in 1992. He's also planning on doing a follow-up called "Samsara" that might be released this year.

Just watch out for part 6 and on. Just sayin'.

Not discouraging anybody from watching Baraka online, it's incredible. But, I must say, if you can get this version (Blu-Ray): http://www.amazon.com/Baraka-Blu-ray-Ron-Fricke/dp/B001CDLATE
Ebert remarked that it was, "the finest video disc I have ever viewed or ever imagined."
I was lucky enough to catch it in the theatres... An experience that cannot be forgotten.

Last Minutes With Oden

A short 6 minute doc about a man struggling with putting down his dog dying of cancer. EXTREMELY moving piece.

It's a good story pet owners can related to. I feel that the cinematography adds a great deal to this short. I'm investing in a 7D setup myself.

Here's a quick doc from a fellow filmmaker I met recently. Really nice guy. (Also won best Short Documentary at Festivus Film Festival)

Between the Upper Lip and Nasal Passageway: A Modern Account of the Moustache
It seems that anymore the moustache does not enjoy the popularity, nor the respect it did in the past: the moustache has been relegated to the likes of sex-offenders, hillbillies, truckers, and ridiculous caricatures like Ron Burgundy. Yet despite all this there is still inherent dignity in a moustache. The purpose of Between the Upper Lip and Nasal Passageway is to give short but honest glimpses of the moustache in modern society. From old-wives tales, to dancing fancy-men, to the Mexican culture where the roots of a moustache stretch back for generations. It's mysterious, it's solitary, and, even if it's funny, it's not a joke.

Bravo. Thank you for sharing this with us. I thought it was beautiful. I'm sending it to my extended family in Florida.

Thanks very much. Do you have any sailor relatives in Florida?

Hi guys, just trying to help update the OP.

On page 1, there's a link to my documentary film, "The Sundowner." I took it off Youtube, because I had to cut it into two segments, and the overall quality wasn't very good.

Here's a link to the high-quality version of the film on Vimeo:
http://vimeo.com/14144353

If that link doesn't work for whatever reason, here's a backup Public mirror on Dropbox:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/ppmqh2vo5ll36n6/sundowner_final_cut_matrox_h264_high.mov

A brief synopsis of the film:
"An engineer becomes a man of the sea on his handcrafted fifty-three foot sailboat, with the incredible ambition to sail around the world."

"The Sundowner" on IMDB:

I have to recommend The Elephant in the Living Room, which is about the growing trend of exotic/dangerous pet ownership in America. At one point they go undercover at an exotic reptile fair, and find Gaboon Vipers, Nile Crocodiles and other super dangerous animals for sale to the general public.

It does get a little hard to watch, but it's worth it. It's on Netflix instant, so give it a try!

Very glad to see this on Netflix. I agree with you, their doc is definitely worth a watch. I was fortunate enough to screen my documentary with these guys! They were awesome filmmakers.
