I thought it would be fun to document the process of building a simple backpack. Typically this would take less than a day, but filming was a new experience for me and added additional challenges. The container was made from a left over 50lb rice bag, which is super light, durable and waterproof. I originally made the pattern for a small 16L Cordura day pack but I was curious to see how this material would work.
The coal-miner turned photographer is bringing a new angle to oceanic imagery
The coal-mining town of Bulli, south of Sydney, is not regarded as a repository of high art, nor as a vibrant and pulsing beehive of life and color, and yet there was Ray Collins. Seven years ago the idea of his new photography book, Found at Sea, would have seemed ludicrous to him; he was still working a mile down in the mines and hadn’t shot a single frame. Collins crawled out of the mines after blowing out a knee—“No shock absorbers left,” he says—and bought a camera with the payout. In the short years since, Collins has transitioned from subterranean to submarine and become arguably the most inventive water photographer in Australia.via Adventure Journal

Lovely collection of press kits from the manned moon landing 50 years ago
David Meerman Scott is the co-author of Marketing the Moon, which was produced by Scott-Martin Kosofsky. And, incidentally, this year is the 50th anniversary of the first (that we know of) manned landing on the moon. Mr. Scott has produced an invaluable resource.
Jason said it best
This trailer made by cinematographer and director Morgan Cooper imagines a contemporary reboot of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air that’s a little darker and grittier than the original. I dunno about you, but that’s one of the best fan-made trailers I’ve ever seen. I say give Cooper the show and let him run with it.
