Burning man 2014 from UBERcut on Vimeo.

Directed, Filmed and Edited by Jorrit Monné from UBERcut

I was invited by Sander van Doorn’s team to join them to Burning Man in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada USA to capture his experience in the best way possible. Although this was his first time (and mine too) attending the event, the video gives a pretty good idea on what the event was like for a DJ (and hopefully other attendees as well). This video was not made for commercial use, only to capture Sander’s precious BM moments (which, according to Sander himself, were life changing) and to be able to share them with his friends & fans.

Please Send me a message if your art is in the video, that way I can credit everyone who made these great creations!

How do you condemn a mob without drawing attention to that same mob? For many of our staff, myself included, GamerGate presented enough of a perceived danger that we were scared for ourselves and our families. (Notable fact I remind myself of often: There are 14 children among the Polygon staff, including two under the age of 1).

If you consider yourself a GamerGate moderate, and are genuinely concerned with ethics in journalism, then I have some perhaps surprising news for you — you’d be hard-pressed to find a more interested party than the games press itself.

Twitter has been shamefully slow in addressing this problem. It didn’t add a report-abuse button until August 2013, after British activist Caroline Criado-Perez was hit with a torrent of violent threats because she campaigned to get Jane Austen’s portrait on the £10 note.
The subtext of some of these objections, that the gaming industry does not need to change, troubles me much more. Historically, the majority culture in America telling a minority culture “can’t you just pipe down and let us keep things the way they are?” has led to some darker chapters in our country’s history.

A Brief Look at Texting and the Internet in Film from Tony Zhou on Vimeo.

Is there a better way of showing a text message in a film? How about the internet? Even though we’re well into the digital age, film is still ineffective at depicting the world we live in. Maybe the solution lies not in content, but in form.

Michael Bay - What is Bayhem? from Tony Zhou on Vimeo.

There are filmmakers we love and then there’s Michael Bay. Even if you dislike him (as I do), Bay has something valuable to teach us about visual perception. This is an exploration of “Bayhem” — his style of camera movement, composition and editing that creates something overblown, dynamic and distinct.

Edgar Wright - How to Do Visual Comedy from Tony Zhou on Vimeo.

If you love visual comedy, you gotta love Edgar Wright, one of the few filmmakers who is consistently finding humor through framing, camera movement, editing, goofy sound effects and music. This is an analysis and an appreciation of a director so awesome that Marvel had to fire him on a holiday.

Satoshi Kon - Editing Space & Time from Tony Zhou on Vimeo.

Four years after his passing, we still haven’t quite caught up to Satoshi Kon, one of the great visionaries of modern film. In just four features and one TV series, he developed a unique style of editing that distorted and warped space and time. Join me in honoring the greatest Japanese animator not named Miyazaki.
