We the Economy is a pretty interesting concept. It’s a series of 20 short videos, and spells out difficult economic ideas and theories in very basic terms. They kind of reminds me of my old A-Level Economics course, in their elegant simplicity, but they’re certainly filmed very well.
Paris / New York
Cities have much in common…
Sincerity Machine: The Comic Sans typewriter
You know you want one.
Videogames & Mechanics
An interesting, ten-minute film by PBS about whether videogames are actually about their mechanics. Or not.
Who We Are
“It’s time we stop apologizing for how we get our protein. This is who we are. Unless you’re a small time rancher, small time farmer, a hunter or fishermen… you really have no idea where your food comes from. Most people don’t even think about it. Well, we think about it.”
I’m sure some might see the controversy in this, and hunting for food in general, but there’s a lot of sense in that statement. These people are getting some of the most ecologically sustainable forms of protein, from animals that have lived healthy, free lives. Food for thought…
Welcome to Union Glacier
This is genuinely fascinating: “Union Glacier is located in the southern Ellsworth Mountains of West Antarctica. This is a documentary about a small team of people who live and work on the glacier during the Antarctic summer.”
Liwa with Google Maps
Who needs cars?
A short film of autumnal scenes. This is absolutely my favourite time of the year.
What is Literature for?
A nice little short film.
The Physics of Space Battles
Basically, why all science fiction movies are scientifically inaccurate. Not that we care!
