All you need is a teacher like this.
And 8-bit retelling of J.J. Abrams’ first Star Trek movie. The entire dimwitted fiasco in just 90 seconds!

This is an excellent 1981 documentary about the working methods of New York photographer Joel Meyerowitz. The film was directed by and features Colin L. Westerbeck, Jr. interviewing the photographer and hanging out with him on New York City streets as he works to capture the incredible compositions that materialize out of thin air on a moment’s notice. I like the way Meyerowitz opens up completely to the documentary process and includes the filmmaker in his working life. It’s a truly generous act by a serious artist who is bursting with profound ideas about his work, is not afraid to express his doubts, and reveals his shifting aesthetic to an insightful and enthusiastic documentary filmmaker.
Fernando Sanches shot this on an iPhone in 2011. The Instagram filters work in the film's favor, putting it at a remove in time. People don't like the immediacy of photography anymore. They want photos to be old instantly. That's interesting because almost all photographs are turned into good ones by time. They are more connected to time than motion pictures are. Tarkovsky was mistaken when he said that time is what defines cinema. That's not quite it. Still photographs are defined by time to a far greater degree. Cinema is defined by attitude.
