MPF Eye on Shorts – Can You Read My Lips ? – by Little Moving Pictures

Can You Read My Lips ?

This is a very interesting short on the difficulties dealing with hearing impairment in an auditory world. What makes it different than you would expect, is that it gives the audience a taste of what it’s like to try and lip read, and let me tell you, that’s not an easy thing to do. I found myself really trying to follow what was being said but failing completely, so I came away with great admiration for those amazing folks that are able to accomplish it. Hope you enjoy the experience.

MPF Eye on Shorts – Paragliding With The Northern Lights

Paragliding with the Northern Lights

This is one of the those have to share videos. The images are gorgeous, and I’m as green as the northern lights with envy. Horacio Llorens, one of the world’s best acro-paragliders, had the opportunity to fly during one of planet earth’s great spectacles, and I can only imagine what an amazing experience it must have been. If you haven’t had an opportunity to see the Northern Lights in person, please, please, put it on your list. No video can ever do it justice.

MPF Eye on Shorts – Painting In The Dark by Delve.TV

Painting in the Dark by Delve.TV

This is the 3rd installment of a video essay series, and is for all of you who are art makers or art lovers. It compares the difficulty in finding an audience in today’s digital age, with what the masters went through centuries ago, and specifically Vincent Van Goth. It makes the point that artists continue to create primarily for the love of the creation, despite not attaining what society views as success. A very nice piece with an enjoyable history lesson to boot.

MPF Eye on Shorts – Untethered by Leftcoast Media House – Slacklining

Untethered from Leftcoast Media House – A Look at Slacklining

OK, all you adrenaline junkies, this one’s for you. I normally stick to short Shorts, but this was too fun not to include in our library. It’s a look at slacklining and highlining, which is an up and coming extreme sport. This film was shot in the Squamish area near Vanvouver BC, and has some great scenery and camera work. Enjoy the ride.

MPF Eye on Shorts – 3D Street Art by Smookie Ilison

3D Street Art by Smookie Ilison.

Creativity in any form is what makes our world come alive. This type of art is fascinating because of the thought and planning that goes into it. Street paintings used to be lovely 2 dimensional images done in pastels that would run into a mix of colored streaks as soon as the rain hit, but as in everything thing else, a few extremely talented people have blown the lid off the art-form. I think this is what Walt Disney had envisioned with the street art scene in Mary Poppins.

Anyway, enjoy the experience.

MPF Eye on Shorts – #Einstein100 – General Relativity from Eoin Duffy

#Einstein100 – General Relativity

This is a simple and fun explanation of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, which is actually celebrating it’s 100th year. Where does the time go, ( a little Einstein humor there ) ?

It touches on space and time warps, dark matter and energy, and the beginning and expansion of the universe. Heady stuff for a 3 minute piece. It’s special also because it works for all ages, and would be especially good for a family discussion. Enjoy.

MPF Eye on Shorts – Portraits of the Unseen Domestic Laborers

This is a look at the passion and dedication of a young socially conscience artist. His name is Ramiro Gomez Jr., and because his parents are Mexican immigrants that work in the janitorial and truck driving fields, he has become very aware of the invisibility of the blue collar worker. His art is built around placing paintings of domestic laborers in L.A.’s luxury districts to shine a light on these workers, and their importance in our society.

His work is currently being represented by the Charlie James Gallery. I expect this young man has a great future ahead. This film is part of The Atlantic’s American Dreams series.
