“Fly on Out
,” above, is a short film by Robert Kolodny from Brooklyn-based production collective House of Nod. They explain:
The film was shot on the super slow motion Phantom Miro High Speed Camera, thanks to a grant by AbelCine and Vision Research. The film is a colorful kaleidoscope of kinesthetic imagery showing off all the grit and beauty that is Brooklyn.
The story features an eleven-year-old boy who is chased through the streets, project houses and basketball courts of Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. As residents of the neighborhood, the team aimed to provide the audience with a hyper-stylized look at life beneath the J train. Many of the film’s actors were local residents found while shooting on the street. From handball to sneakers over telephone wires to barbershops and bodegas, "Fly on Out" is a refreshingly classic look at Kings County.

Bamboo has lots of uses beyond just being panda food. Things like bikes, roads, scaffolding, and musical instruments are made from the fast-growing grass. But unless you are participating in a tropical-themed LARP, you probably wouldn’t want a shirt made from bamboo stalks. So why do bamboo bed sheets make any sense? Because yarn extracted from […]
If you want to work in tech, but don’t have any desire to code web apps to help businesses sell things to other business, you might want to consider a career in cybersecurity. Judging from the apparent complete infiltration of Russian hackers in American cyberspace, it seems fair to speculate that there’s a major shortage of […]
All moms are different. But all moms like getting flowers on Mother’s Day, and that’s a fact (not, however a fact we can document in any fashion.) Instead of getting chewed out for forgetting to call her on the second Sunday of May, you can take care of it ahead of time with Teleflora’s flower […]
