watching short films

vimeo is a great site. you can find film makers and students like jacob mendel. below is my favorite video of his because he sticks to his specialty, bringing life and movement to his stark images by adding sound.

Rooms from Jacob Mendel on Vimeo.

i am thinking about the 8mm film that i want to make later this week and i wonder if maybe i should pick a route similar to this. maybe i want to film people doing things on capitol hill. protesting foie gras, standing in line at molly moon's, working construction... what other things do people do on the hill?

his other films seem to be missing something when he adds too much to the formula. the tom waits soundtrack is a bit much.
