10 Things for This Sunday

10 Things for This Sunday

This week flew by! ( I mean, what is time anymore?)

Here is what we have been looking at from the safety of our homes. Be safe this Memorial Day.

  1. The Carbon Trace Leadership team is happy to release a preview of our upcoming feature-length film, “Witness at the Border.” 
  2. Any receipt by Salad for President wins dinner, every time.  
  3. This is a crucial tutorial for anyone interested in documentary filmmaking– The Art of B-Roll. It doesn’t matter how earth-shattering your idea is. Without the visuals to pair that idea with, you have nothing worth showing.
  4. We love graphic representations of just about anything. Citylab asked people to make maps of their time during coronavirus, and the results are as delightful as expected.
  5. Similarly, the Washington Post asked folks to review their quarantine experiences as they would a hotel. It turns out not everyone is having a five start time
  6. Steve Pokin is back from vacation, and I couldn’t be happier about it. However, hats off to Mr. Wheeler, who answered reader questions in his place last week. 
  7. Beautiful, ethically done, and informative article about where the dead are laid to rest in New York.  
  8. Finally gave Honeyland a shot. It may not have much a plotline but so beautiful you hardly notice. 
  9. We are proud to present the official trailer of “Songs from the Street!” This student-led crew has poured months of blood, sweat, and passion into this project. The final  film will be out soon. 
  10. Our Patreon page is loaded with content. We are showing lots of exclusive content for our members over the next month.

Witness at the Border |Trailer|

This is the trailer for Witness at the Border, the sequel film to the award-winning documentary, Witness at Tornillo.

American volunteers in Matamoros, Mexico are the only lifeline for Central American refugees caught between two governments hostile to their situation.

As the U.S. asylum courts deny their claims and the Mexican government takes daily steps to make camp life difficult, the refugees and volunteers hang on together waiting for justice.

10 Things for Sunday

10 Things for Sunday

AH, Sunday has knocked on our door once again.
Here are all the wonderful things the Carbon Trace Productions Team has been peeping this week: 

  1. This fantastic tutorial on the finer points of B-roll here at Carbon Trace Productions by our very own leader and chief Andy Cline.
  2. I started CRYING this week after Springfield’s own Crystal Methyd made the top 3 on Rue Pauls Drag Race.
  3. Carbon Trace Productions’ own Jym Wilson, who has a 38-year career in photojournalism, has taken some amazing photos for our “Songs from the Street Project” Check them out here.
  4. Give an extrovert a call today. They may need it more than they will admit.
  5. Shakha Benbow, director of our spring 2019 student film  “Zero,” and MSU Professor Jon Mabee worked on this film together. A very powerful message ready for your eyeballs.
  6. If your soul is starting to get weary during these weird times, take a load off, read this, and forget about making bread. It. Is. Over.
  7. Keep your fingers crossed for us. We turned in a grant proposal to the Ford Foundation this week to fund our next big project: A Portrait of the Ozarks.
  8. IndieFilm Hustle has been a good resource for up-to-date news in the documentary film industry. This week’s podcast on production safety guidelines post-COVID gave me plenty of great ideas about how to keep the whole team safe. I will be writing a post about some of his suggestions and other suggestions on the blog later this week.
  9. We are continuing to add new members to our Patreon account. Our “Early View” members and up got an early release this weekend.  Become a sustaining member today!
  10. We are very proud of our Bear Grads this semester! We found this GIF of Volunteers Marlena and Natalie that MSU put on display this week.
