GREAT WORK AGAIN!!!!!! IMHO NPR is creating some of the best MM content across so many platforms it makes my head hurt. Keep it up.

Close to Home by Theo Rigby.

Close to Home follows the story of a father broken from the loss of his son, and a daughter waiting for the father that she once had. Through his passionate advocacy to find his son’s murderer, Luis Marquez has lost sight of his family. The Marquez family now suffers the absence of a father, along with the brutal loss of a son. Luis’ daughter, Norma, expounds on the fragile mind-state of her father, and their tenuous relationship, as she sets up an altar welcoming Brian’s spirit back into the house on the traditional Mexican holiday of the Day of the Dead. Close to Home employs a haunting score, combined with black and white imagery to frame this story of a father trying to find a way to continue with life, and become the father he has always wanted to be.

This all under the heading of:

RICH ADDICKS:

Using the new Nikon D3s for the first time, I made this video of a friend who has taken on the craft/art of blacksmithing. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did shooting and editing it.

For a few thoughts on the process and using the D3s visit my blog richaddicks.wordpress.com/2010/03/18/mettle-on-metal/

  1. I’m surprised you hadn’t seen those Christopher Morris vids. I was actually going to ask you what you thought about them a few months ago when I first saw them. I love his aesthetic, (he is Christopher Morris after all) and POV, but I think that they all end up dragging by the end. It’s great to see him pushing new means of storytelling though!

  2. The One Day On Earth Trailer is not available anymore? Is it just me (because I live in Germany and YouTube is censoring some content to german users) or did they deleted the video? Is there any direct download or something like this?
