Ben Saunders - Solo & unsupported North Pole Speed Record 2011-2013

Ben Saunders talks about weight saving techniques, his equipment design choices to launch a record-setting expeditions to the North Pole. His expedition has been delayed by ice composition changes in the Arctic. If we think about global warming or inter-glacial melts, the logistics of Arctic life for natives and explorers is fast changing and challenging the traditional ways the northern communities have lived, who visits them, and how they sustain their lives in the warming polar and arctic regions of the northern hemisphere used in this example.

Caine's Arcade: Cardboard arcade become a reality, inspiration for those who dare to dream



[Los Angeles Times] "Caine's Arcade" -- a short film about a 9-year-old boy who built an elaborate cardboard arcade in his dad's used auto parts store in East L.A. -- is one of the sweetest videos we've seen all year.
And now it's going viral: The 11-minute video has picked up 1 million views  on Vimeo in just two days, and another 438,000 views  on YouTube.
"Caine is a killer," filmmaker Nirvan Mullick, who directed the video, wrote in a recent tweet. "He has been making thousands of grown men weep at work."
The star of the film is 9-year-old Caine, a precocious little boy who spent his summer vacation at his dad's used auto parts shop in East Los Angeles.
To pass the time, Caine -- who loves everything about arcades -- started building his own arcade entirely out of cardboard boxes, eventually taking over almost the whole store, while his dad sold auto parts on eBay in the back.
The first game was a basketball game with a little plastic hoop that he got at Shakey's and taped to a cardboard box. He also made a soccer game with two little plastic green army figures acting as fixed goalies, and he even created a claw machine with an s-hook and a piece of yarn.
Since school started back up, Caine's Arcade is only open on weekends, when Caine gets out his turquoise Caine's Arcade T-shirt that he designed himself. It says "staff" on the front and "Caine's Arcade" on the back.
Caine charges $1 for four turns at the arcade, but for $2 you can get a handmade fun pass that allows you 500 turns for one month.
When you win a game, Caine will climb inside the box and push tickets out a slot. The prizes include his old matchbox cars, silly sunglasses and bubbles.
He also attached calculators to each box, which he uses to verify the validity of the fun passes he sells.
In other words, it's just like a real arcade, except a million times better.
Mullick discovered the homemade arcade when he fortuitously stopped into Caine's dad's auto parts store to get a handle for his '96 Corolla. Smitten with Caine and the arcade, he asked Caine's father, George, if he could make a film about the arcade and the answer was yes.
But the father warned the filmmaker that Caine doesn't get many customers.
"Well, actually, it's kind of like a joke around here because you are his only customer," he says in the film. Well, Mullick changed all that.
In the film, he explains how he decided to create a flashmob of people who would arrive at Caine's Arcade eager to play some games.
He created a Facebook event for the mob, which got posted on Hidden LA, and then got posted on Reddit, and suddenly people from around the world were lamenting that they weren't able to go to Caine's Arcade.
It's worth watching the video to see Caine's reaction to the crowd of people lined up outside of his cardboard arcade, but we suggest you have a box of tissues nearby.
When it was all over, Caine told his dad that it was the best day of his life.
And if this story isn't sweet enough, Mullick set up a scholarship fund for Caine, which has already raised more than $80,000.

HIMALAYAS X 2011-2012 / EXPEDITION SHORT 6.5 MINUTE







This video is a 6 minute, 33 second trailer part of the HimalayasX2011-2012 expedition project on a mountain bike. Last summer, I completed 3200km (1988 miles) exploring western China, Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, and crossing Himalayan sections of Sichuan and Yunnan provinces.

这部影片是一个6分钟,33山地自行车项目HimalayasX2011-2012年远征的第二拖车部分。去年夏天,我完成了3200公里(1800英里),探索中国西部的新疆维吾尔自治区,穿越喜马拉雅四川和云南等省的部分。我是支持的想法,肠道疾病的教育意识论社会,加拿大 nogutsknowglory.com 在通过探险,ETE的,教育的合作伙伴关系 etehome.org 我冒险的网页,

The Mountain: A Short film of Auroras

Auroras explained in a simple schematic diagram.

[Authors notes] Follow on:
https://facebook.com/TSOphotography for more photos, videos and updates.

This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide.
Spain´s highest mountain @(3718m) is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and is also the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world´s best observatories.

The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I know El Teide. I have to say this was one of the most exhausting trips I have done. There was a lot of hiking at high altitudes and probably less than 10 hours of sleep in total for the whole week. Having been here 10-11 times before I had a long list of must-see locations I wanted to capture for this movie, but I am still not 100% used to carrying around so much gear required for time-lapse movies.

A large sandstorm hit the Sahara Desert on the 9th April (http://bit.ly/g3tsDW) and at approx 3am in the night the sandstorm hit me, making it nearly impossible to see the sky with my own eyes.

Interestingly enough my camera was set for a 5 hour sequence of the milky way during this time and I was sure my whole scene was ruined. To my surprise, my camera had managed to capture the sandstorm which was backlit by Grand Canary Island making it look like golden clouds. The Milky Way was shining through the clouds, making the stars sparkle in an interesting way. So if you ever wondered how the Milky Way would look through a Sahara sandstorm, look at 00:32.

Available in Digital Cinema 4k.

Spain´s highest mountain @(3718m) is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and is also the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world´s best observatories.

The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I know El Teide. I have to say this was one of the most exhausting trips I have done. There was a lot of hiking at high altitudes and probably less than 10 hours of sleep in total for the whole week. Having been here 10-11 times before I had a long list of must-see locations I wanted to capture for this movie, but I am still not 100% used to carrying around so much gear required for time-lapse movies.

A large sandstorm hit the Sahara Desert on the 9th April (http://bit.ly/g3tsDW) and at approx 3am in the night the sandstorm hit me, making it nearly impossible to see the sky with my own eyes.

Interestingly enough my camera was set for a 5 hour sequence of the milky way during this time and I was sure my whole scene was ruined. To my surprise, my camera had managed to capture the sandstorm which was backlit by Grand Canary Island making it look like golden clouds. The Milky Way was shining through the clouds, making the stars sparkle in an interesting way. So if you ever wondered how the Milky Way would look through a Sahara sandstorm, look at 00:32.

The Denali Experiment: Northface Ski Expedition


[Authors notes] Although I was injured with a few broken vertebrae in my neck during this expedition it was awesome to live vicariously through the edit process! cheers, ~reo
----------------------------------------------------------
"In a lot of ways, this is the antithesis of the modern ski porn flick. A lot of rock star skiers and not much skiing! Ha! Well, hopefully having a narrative helps the piece along. It was a tough piece to put together with all the different characters. I decided to focus the story on Sage and Lucas and was hoping the piece would give people a sense of who those two characters are besides being rock star skiers/snowboarders. I often feel like the whole process of skiing and who the skiers actually are gets lost in most of the films today." ~jimmy chin
----------------------------------------------------------
Free-ride skier Sage Cattabriga-Alosa and big mountain snowboarder Lucas Debari step out of their elements and make an attempt to climb, ski and snowboard Denali. Sage and Lucas get a helping hand from a huge cast of seasoned and professional climbers and ski mountaineers from the North Face Athlete Team, including Hilaree O’Neill, Conrad Anker, Ingrid Backstrom, Jim Zellers, Emilio Previtali and Giulia Monego, as the two embark on the hardest expedition of their lives.
