Werner Herzog | The Talks

Short little insightful interview with Werner Herzog. 

Filming the passionate Russian musician Boris Sichon the other day and had a few minutes to take some stills. The man truly is in love with art and music, in a lifelong soulful way, and I think a little of that comes out in this picture. Or I hope so anyway.   © Darrell Lecorre

Interesting interview with Nick Woodman, CEO of GoPro on the Charlie Rose show yesterday.

Woodman talks about the evolution of the cameras, how he constantly captures his own family with them, and the next direction aimed toward documenting family life and solving some of the editing workflow challenges. 

I’ve never even held one of these things - I always figured I needed a surfboard and had to resemble Spicoli from Ridgemont High to do so, but am now thinking of these cameras in a completely different light and excited about testing one out.    

Even if you can’t stand the Yankees - this Jeter vid is pretty sweet.

Michael Moore's 13 Rules for Making Documentary Films

Some Michael Moore wisdom for doc ‘film’makers.

Garagiola's life full of achievements and giving

A good man and a great selection for the 2014 Buck O’Neil Award.  (And oh that wonderful voice takes me directly back to 1975 again.)

Joe Garagiola’s life has been one of humor and giving, of dignity, integrity and grace. Baseball has been a constant — his enduring love. Yet that’s just part of the story. 

Art is something that happens inside us. We look at things in the world, and we become excited by them. We understand our own possibilities of becoming. And that’s what art is.

Katie Couric interviews Robert De Niro about his new film about his father.

Love how he talks about the duty of the kids.

A fascinating little interview to check out - De Niro seems reluctant to elaborate too much, and yet one can almost feel his passion to tell the story. Interesting. Can’t wait to for the film.    Watch it here.

"Live your life. Live your life. Live your life."

Spiritual or atheistic, these words by Maurice Sendak say it all.

"I am on the earth. I’m here. If I can contribute, I should. Shouldn’t we all?" ~ Evelyn

Great words to live by. And sweet little video.

Life is like a camera….focus only on what is important and you will capture it perfectly.
~ Linda Poindexter

The Healing Power of Story - Natural Awakenings

Telling our own truth, and stories in general, is healthy in so many ways.

D-Day through a lens: 'First the rifle, then photographs'

"One of the greatest thing we should have, we don’t have. A Department of Peace, we don’t have it. You’d be surprised the need that we have to have that," Tony Vaccaro. 

In honour of the 70th anniversary of D-Day, here’s a story and pictures from photographer/soldier Tony Vaccaro.
