NEW YORK The Statue of Liberty. Times Square. The Empire State Building. The Brooklyn Bridge. The yellow cabs. Today everyone photographs the “classics” and shares with the whole world the photos on social media. So, what happens when every day, all day and from multiple angles, these symbolic places are photographed by everyone? If we put together those images, photos and videos, we could see the whole (hi)story of a place. “Typologies of New York City” is a 57-second video made exactly in this way, using 1.272 photos of the city found on Instagram, selected and combined in a coherent animation by creative Sam Morrison (@SamTheCobra on social media).
WORLD ‘Mindless Crowd’ is a collage of drone footage combined with a voiceover from the 1960s. The short film examines the different patterns and various formations which human civilisation has shaped on the surface of planet earth. It therefore uses only one single perspective, the top view. A 4-minute film by German (from Nürnberg) director Jacco Kliesch. Be curious and watch it!

NORWAY ‘A Nordic Skater’ is a short film by Paulius Neverbickas, filmmaker with a big passion for action sports and camping in the wilderness, who’s always trying to inspire people to go outside and enjoy the beauty of nature. Exactly like in his last work featuring Per Sollerman, a photographer who has been skating on frozen lakes and fjords for the past 10 years, because: “It is rooted deep in our bones that we need to be out in the nature”. Watch this story!
