As the very first female presidential nominee of a major party, Democrat Hillary Clinton is already in a historic position. Come November, she could achieve another milestone: becoming the first Madam President in United States history. Yet behind the groundbreaking nature of Clinton’s candidacy lies an absence of women in elected office; in terms of female representation at the national level, the U.S. lags behind much of the rest of the world.
Created in collaboration between FiveThirtyEight and Rutgers University’s Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP), the video here is an exploration of this disparity and the real difference that gender, regardless of party, can make.
Of course, what you see would not have been possible without the talents of FiveThirtyEight’s Art Director, Kate LaRue, the art and animation skills of Tom McCarten, music + sound design from Redhorse Studio, and data viz guidance from Ella Koeze. Additional thanks goes out to Debbie Walsh at CAWP and Barbara Burrell, both of whom were extremely generous with their time and research.

Much has been made about the wonders of Venice, but few ever venture deep enough across its less touristy, yet still historical hidden places. Beyond hundreds of canals and a diverse architectural style, a secret facet of Venetian life lives on, in which the journey of hand crafting gondola wooden oars and loomed fabrics remains rooted in ancient folk traditions.
This short film uncovers the secrets that have been handed down from father to son and projects you to the Venice that existed 500 years ago, immersing you in the extraordinary craftsmen’s veiled workshops that belong to a long lost era.
I have received so many messages asking for details on how I produce my videos.
I put down this short piece: oliver.as/videotips this explains few techniques I have been using and includes a list of equipment. Don’t hesitate to write to me if you need further details or have any recommendation.
This project has been produced in partnership with René Caovilla, the master Venetian shoemaker who has overwhelmed the world with his creations.
This video is a homage to the city of Venice on behalf of René Caovilla – renecaovilla.com

Maya Erickson’s Black Sesame Dessert
Film by Director Jennifer Davick and Executive Producer Amy Yvonne Yu
DP Devin Whetstone | Story by Writer Tanner Latham | Post-Production by Mission Film & Design
Stylized, Sexy, Provocative and Decadent. Everything You Would Expect from a Grandmother’s Recipe.
At 13 years old, Maya Erickson was working in a professional kitchen, tasked primarily with filling cookies and wrapping tuiles. She shrugs this detail off now, as if it’s simply a throwaway line unworthy of her bio. As if most newly-turned teenagers must surely have been like her—resisting the temptation to toggle among their screens and choosing, instead, a highly disciplined path.
It is with this kind of casual, unassuming tone that this wunderkind (now she’s in her mid-20s), pastry chef describes her Black Sesame Ice Cream with Black Sesame Pudding, a dessert rooted in her former chef’s grandmother’s poppy seed pudding recipe yet presented with a stylized, sexy and provocative manner that’s as arresting and mood-evoking visually as it is to the palate.
Maya created this dessert while working as the pastry chef at Lazy Bear, a San Francisco restaurant that grew from the cult-like following of an underground supper club and whose own chef/owner David Barzelay recently received the nod as a 2016 Food and Wine Best New Chef.
To complement the ice cream and pudding, Maya’s Black Sesame dessert features cassis jam, cassis pate de fruit, dehydrated devil’s food cake, forbidden rice pudding and a light dusting of charcoal. This creation—with its colors and flavors and textures—makes you question what you think you know about food. This is the epitome of Maya’s gift to anyone lucky enough to receive it—a delicately plated, understated, experiential dessert that decadently performs.

The Eastern Sierra Mountain Range offers an extremely diverse range of unique natural features, from some of the oldest living trees in the world to extraordinary desert arches. Beyond its incredible terrain, this area of California also offers stunning, vivid views of the Milky Way and the Night Sky.
Its crazy to think that the Galaxy can be captured with this much detail, only a few hours away from Los Angeles and San Francisco. I hope that seeing some of this footage with influence more people to get out there any witness the magic of the night sky. I have met people in SF and LA that have never seen the Milky Way in their entire life. Why not?! Its within such a close reach!
Having been born and raised in California, I have a special affinity for the Eastern Sierra region. It was one of the first areas that I featured in my early photography projects. I wanted to re-visit this beautiful region and showcase some of my favorite views through Timelapse photography.

This is my second project for Motion Techniques II. The concept is a poem by Alaska Gold.
edited script –
If the boy who draws
lets you look over his shoulder
if the poet smiles
and shows you her words
know that you’re no longer a person
but the air,
that fills their lungs
when the world perishes,
and all things cease to exist
you’ll remain inside an ink stain
check out Alaska’s awesome poetry!

Apo Whang-Od is considered the world’s last Mambabatok (hand-tap tattoo artist) from her generation. At the estimated age of 99, she is now passing the tattooing tradition to a new generation in her tribe including her grand-niece Grace.
The tradition of this style of tattoo started as a symbol of pride for warriors and a marking of beauty for females in the Butbut tribe and has now taken a unique turn in their village, Kalinga, situated remotely in the mountains of the Luzon province in The Philippines.
Stay tuned next week for a release of a Behind The Scenes film taking you through the making of the project.

About the Project:
While I’m Here | The Legacy Project is a series of videos that profile amazing everyday people, while they’re still here.
I decided to start this project after missing out on the chance to tell the story of a man from my hometown who dedicated his life to helping others. That man’s name was Frank Dymock. For years, Frank opened his garage to the public and sharpened skates free of charge. He wouldn’t accept a dime. He was an icon in the place where I grew up, and I always wanted to tell his story while he was still here.
Regretfully, I let time pass, and Frank passed away before I had the chance to tell his story. This project is dedicated to him and to countless others who live selflessly and truly leave a legacy, forever impacting the lives of the people lucky enough to cross their paths.

Mountain Hardwear athlete, Cheyne Lempe, created Awake In Me after his trip to Greece. This film is about how going to incredible places isn’t an escape from normal life or trying to hide from problems, but the power and energy in a place like Kalymnos helps you work through whatever struggles life throws at you. Going to beautiful places not only helps jolt back into reality, but it helps me take a step back from that way of unhealthy living and thinking.

Human beings don’t always make rational decisions. But making irrational decisions is precisely what makes us human. These decisions, based on an impulse or a feeling, often lead us to those perfect moments when it feels great to be alive.
“The Beauty of the Irrational” follows Ryan Sandes, a South African Ultra-Runner, as he returns to the Fish River Canyon to run the 5 day, 84km, Fish River Canyon Hiking Trail in the fastest time possible.
He completed the run, self-supported, in amazing time of 6h57min!
