Well this is boring…

The City of the Arts and Sciences in Valencia, Spain is a pretty remarkable place.

City of the Arts and Sciences

 

However, I managed to find one monotonous exhibit that you desperately want to see, but can’t stand to watch.

I waited for about 15 minutes, filmed half of that, and edited it down to 2-3 minutes.

You will just want to see how it ends.

TRACE Parkour On London’s South Bank

This is an ambush interview I shot March 27, 2010 on London’s South Bank. These guys – Trace – get together and free run around town to whatever spots they please.

And they are good.

The Woronieckis have hit the web

The Woroniekis are pretty infamous, especially the father of the family Michael Woronieki whose life was transformed by finding God and Jesus.

In the media realm, the family is infamous for perhaps influencing Andrea Yates to kill her children in 2001.

The family preaches. According to them, they travel around the world preaching the word of God. They don’t belong to any church in particular and they claim they don’t have any followers.

The Woronieckis claim they have been visiting the University of Massachusetts Amherst every year for many years preaching their message, handing out pamphlets and carrying giant signs. The last two years, I’ve interviewed members of the family at UMass.

Only until recently, have they hit the web in what seems to be a primary source.

They have their own website and blog, which appear to be updated by one of Michael Woroniecki’s sons, Joshua

Now that the Woronieckis have hit the web much like everyone else today, this could mean a huge expanse of preaching and thus a wider audience.

The Woronieckis have been accused of having a sort of brainwashing style. 

Having interviewed them twice, it is agreeable. But what gets me most is how they answer questions and how they talk to you. It’s as if they never come out of preaching mode. Every answer is long winded and is a lot to digest because everything alludes or pertains to God, Jesus, sinning, and the bible.

And, now, people who enjoy the preaching of the family, have 24/7 Internet access to their preaching lives, or at least videos, music, and blog entries. 

But don’t forget: the family is their own PR contact. They will put the spin on how they see fit.

The Ambush Interview: Emil Lager

If you follow my video  and documentary work, you might know I happen to do a lot of ambush interviews. If I see something interesting and I can get a camera ASAP or have one in my bag, I will more likely than not, start interviewing the subject.

I try to be nice and unthreatening by all means. I don’t want to scare the subject off. I haven’t had an ambush interview go extremely wrong or get out of hand. But one day in London’s South Bank, I definitely stumbled upon one of my most unique subjects and perhaps awkward interviews.

What resulted was the following video costarring musical artist Emil Lager and his friend Amy.

Lager has a number of well-recorded, yet raw recordings on his MySpace music page and has a few shows set up for the summer. He is also an actor, playing a role in a French indie film called Cassie and playing in a fringe theatre company called Scandimaniacs.

And, according to his biography, he, “Is currently appearing in season IV of SKINS on E4 and as the lead guitarist in the Japanese mega star Ayumi Hamasaki’s two latest music videos MICROPHONE and SEXY LITTLE THINGS.”

Dakota Jeane Music Video

While in London, I wanted to film  a music video of sorts. I discovered a singer-songwriter, Dakota Jeane, also on my program. I took it upon myself to make a small music video. It was shot in about three hours around London.

Hey Buddy Music Video Shoot

This is my Photo of the Day.

I was a Runner on a music video shoot for Hey Buddy TV. I also got to be an extra, which is always fun. The shoot was for a song called “Something Special” by a singer named Al Brown. Hey Buddy has previously made music videos such as Jay Sean‘s “Down.”

A Sony EX3 of course!

 

This is our star, Al.

 

This is the bar, where I was an extra with my buddies on the right.

 

The crew and stars at work. Emily, center, plays the girl Al the singer is following.

 

Colored lights always add a nice touch.

 

This is the bar tender, who, obviously isn't an actual bar tender.
