Dinosaur 13 Film Site. Microtopia documentary explores tiny houses, micro-dwellings, off-grid and minimalist living. Tiny houses are a popular topic here on TreeHugger, and with good reason. Many of us live in houses that are way too big for our needs, and which cause us to commit a large portion of our money and resources to simply maintaining the status quo. Downsizing to a tiny house can be a way of living more sustainably, with less stress on our finances and on the environment, and help us to pare down our lifestyle to something more appropriate and focused on the essentials, instead of accumulating more stuff that can end up weighing us down.

The trend of wanting to make the move to smaller houses, tiny houses, portable houses, and to live with less stuff, isn't unique to the tiny house crowd, and this documentary features some of the leading thinkers and designers of that movement, including tiny house pioneer Jay Shafer. Microtopia is currently only available as a video-on-demand rental from Vimeo, at the cost of $3.99. ‎ Store. Storytellers Media Group - Visual Content for Converging Media.

Ein Film von Valentin Thurn 50 Prozent aller Lebensmittel werden weggeworfen: Jeder zweite Kopfsalat, jede zweite Kartoffel und jedes fünfte Brot. Das meiste davon endet im Müll, bevor es überhaupt den Verbraucher erreicht. Und fast niemand kennt das Ausmaß der Verschwendung. Wer macht aus Essen Müll? Der Film findet Antworten bei Bauern, Supermarkt-Direktoren, Müllarbeitern und Köchen.

Essen wegzuwerfen findet niemand gut — „weil andere nichts zu essen haben“, sagen die Jüngeren und die Älteren erinnern sich noch an den Hunger im Krieg: „Da waren wir um jeden Kanten Brot froh.“ Aber wir alle machen mit beim großen Ex und Hopp! Valentin Thurn hat die Wirklichkeit in unseren Mülltonnen aufgespürt. Was er findet ist ein System, an dem wir uns alle beteiligen: Supermärkte bieten durchgehend die ganze Warenpalette an. Die Folgen reichen weit, denn die Auswirkungen auf das Weltklima sind verheerend. Kleine Schritte, die eine große Chance bedeuten. A film by Valentin Thurn. PROJECT WILD THING: A feature-length documentary by David Bond & Ashley Jones. What will happen if we raise a generation of children completely out of touch with nature?

Filmmaker David Bond thinks Mother Nature needs a helping hand. His children are fascinated by screens but are strangers to the natural world. Childhood is different to when he grew up - so many distractions compete for children’s time and attention. David appoints himself the Marketing Director for Nature and, with the help of marketing experts, he sets out to convince apathetic consumers, and his family, of the benefits of this amazing, free, wonder product. His journey takes him across the world as he attempts to untangle the complex web of agendas, fears, policies and habits that disconnect him and his family from the natural environment.

Project Wild Thing finds hilarity, joy and absurdity in the choices we face as 21st Century humans. Project Wild Thing is an ambitious, feature-length, stunt documentary for international theatrical, TV, film festivals and public screenings. @wearewildthing. ‘Payback’ Documentary, Based on Margaret Atwood’s Book.

The story of Oregon's relationship with Black Americans is complex to say the least.

The tireless LESS CAR MORE GO Co-Directors have emboldened me to post... There's been talk for a while about how effective it would be to have aerial footage of cyclists in motion for LESS CAR MORE GO.

We could make that happen with a GoPro camera mounted on a flying drone, such as the GoPro HERO3: Silver Edition Camera & Phantom Quadcopter with GoPro Mount Kit. We would also need--at lease initially--to hire an operator to make sure we captured what we desired and learned how to best use it. The equipment could be shared amongst Co-Directors within certain limits and always under the watch of a trained operator. Watch the amazing things it can do here. What do you say? Think you can get 10 friends to donate $1? This could not only transform a family life, but put a spotlight on the practical benefits of cargo bikes we all know so well. Furthermore, the collectively illustrated story of the cargo bike boom will be framed by the parallel story of the synergistic LESS CAR MORE GO project.

I absolutely love it. Navigation. Netflix makes push into documentaries. NEW YORK (AP) — Netflix is making a push into documentaries, with the subscription service announcing deals on Thursday to premiere four new films in the next few months. Netflix has always made non-fiction films available to subscribers, but until recently they have been projects initially made for theatrical release or on television networks. Netflix said it now wants filmmakers to make their work specifically for the service, or use Netflix to offer the first wide distribution. The first of the four new films to be released will be "Battered Bastards of Baseball," about a defunct minor league baseball team. It will premiere on Netflix on July 11. "Mission Blue," a documentary about marine biologist Sylvia Earle and her campaign to create a network of protected marine sanctuaries, is set for Aug. 15.

Lisa Nishimura, head of Netflix's documentary unit, said the service is intentionally trying to present films on a wide variety of topics.
