Vimeo Staff Pick: Based on a documentary theater piece, DYLAN…



Vimeo Staff Pick: Based on a documentary theater piece, DYLAN truly rides the line of documentary and narrative genres. Performed with incredible honesty and dramatic skill, Becca Blackwell unforgettably portrays a young man exploring his identity as he finds himself immersed in a new community. DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT: I began the process of making this film nearly ten years ago when I wrote the script as part of a writer’s workshop taught by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen, who were known for creating “The Exonerated.” The workshop was specifically focused on documentary theater writing, which was a format I knew very little about but immediately fell in love with. We were tasked to interview someone whose story seemed interesting, and through a very detailed and specific method would eventually edit these interviews into a documentary theater piece. After thinking for a bit, I decided to approach my friend Dylan Winn Garner, a friend whom I had known since childhood. As a child I had known Dylan as Emily, but had little bits of exposure to his transition which had occurred in the not too recent past. I reached out to Dylan who was willing to participate and we did a phone interview. The interview lasted for over two hours, and we discussed just about every detail of his life from early childhood on. His friendships, his relationships, and his exploration of self-identity. After the interview was over, I transcribed every last detail - every time he cleared his throat or stuttered. This was a key part of the writing process and ultimately what I believe made the final product feel so real. After editing the interview down throughout the workshop, I completed the writing piece but didn’t know what to do with it. It wasn’t placed in a location of any sort and had no life beyond the words on a page. I put it aside, but never quite forgot about it. Nearly ten years later I decided I was ready to make something out of it. I pulled out the story and began working it into a script. I gave it a setting that I felt would be appropriate - a trip to Coney Island at dawn. I had always imagined that Dylan would actually be removing layers of clothing throughout the piece to signify the removal of emotional baggage needed in order to go through the process of self-discovery. Swimming was the perfect ending because it represented the freedom that Dylan had finally achieved. I also spoke with Dylan who gave me permission to film the piece and told me that he loved the idea of going swimming at the end because he was always drawn to the water. Casting Dylan was going to be a challenge and I didn’t really know where to begin. My first instinct was to cast a man in the role but was not sure if that was really the correct choice. Through a friend of a friend I was introduced to Becca Blackwell, an incredible transgender performer out of NYC. When speaking to Becca, we discussed casting the role and they told me that if there was one thing a man could never understand, it was what it was like to want to be a man. That statement resonated with me. Becca is a superb actor who took this role and performance very seriously. Of course filming at Coney Island at dawn, travelling from the subway to the beach and all on steadycam was not an easy task. It took an amazing DP, steadycam operator, sound mixer and performer all working in sync in order to pull it off. Because the sun rose so quickly we could only get 2-3 takes max before we had to move on to the next set up. We filmed for 3 hours for two mornings in a row to get everything we needed. Everyone was incredible in making it happen and above all, Becca gave an amazing performance. I hope in watching this film the viewer can feel how real and honest this story is, and I hope that the message of self-discovery and acceptance will be embraced by all different communities.

床からキノコ!ベッドに髪の毛の束!旅先のホテルで出会った最悪のこと(※衛生的ダメージ注意)

 観光やご当地グルメ、おみやげ探しなど旅先での楽しみは尽きないが、のんびりと羽を伸ばせるホテルもそのひとつだろう。

 ふかふかのベッドに、大きなバスタブ、おいしい朝食、そして心温まるおもてなしがあればもう最高の思い出になるってもんだ。

 まあそのあたりは懐具合にもよりけりだけど誰だって日常とは違う空間にある程度の期待感は持っているはずで、しかし世の中にはそれを見事に裏切るホテルも存在する(関連記事)。

 そんなわけで海外掲示板に投稿されていたあまりにも最悪すぎたホテルを見てみよう。

 潔癖症でなくてもちょっとうっ・・・となる画像があったりもするのでそのあたりは閲覧注意ってことでお願いしたいところではあるんだ。 続きを読む

Graphic Designers Remade Old Buildings Around The World By Using Trends Of The 21st Century

At the very beginning, people developed architecture according to their needs. Protection from the elements and other dangers was the main reason for building a shelter. Over time, other aspects became important too, like seeing from inside the house, being more comfortable, the house looking better. The city also became part of the home.

 道具を使って何かをしたり、オモチャで遊んだりする動物の話は、けっこう耳にするんだけれど、さすがに乗り物を乗りこなす生き物はあんまり見ない気がするよ。

 スケボーに乗るインコとかクルマを運転するわんことか、たまに見るけどフツーじゃないことだけは確かだし。

 しかしここで、ひそかにキックボードの特訓をしている柴犬が発見されたんだ。果たしてその成果は? 早速見に行ってみよう。 続きを読む
