TRAILER:
This is the 1st official trailer for REM. It features footage shot at the Casa De Musica Porto, Portugal.
As well as filming the real life of the buildings (see the CCTV clips and Seattle homeless man) It had been one of the foundational ideas for my film to set-up scenes that really allowed the viewer to "experience" the architecture through staged usage. In this case the freerunner Chris Lodge uses the ambiguous surfaces of the Casa De Musica interchangeably, flipping from walls, ceilings and floors alike.

 

 


KANYE INTERVIEW:
This footage is edited from selected clips of an interview I did with Kanye West for REM. The basis was the collaboration with OMA on his Cannes pavilion but the conversation covers various subjects.

 


 


CCTV COMPLETED JUNE 2012:
This clip was shot in June 2012 at the completed CCTV building in Beijing China. We get a rare glimpse into the surrounding area of CCTV and see everyday life as it occurs in the shadow of the CCTV tower.

 
 


DE ROTTERDAM UNDER CONSTRUCTION JULY 2012:
This clip was shot in July 2012 at De Rotterdam complex Rotterdam, NL during the construction phase. Its interesting to contrast the work methods and attitudes of these workers with those at the CCTV building.

 
 


CCTV COMPLETED FEB 2012:
This clip is edited from footage I shot in Feb 2012. This is the first time I saw CCTV completed. It was interesting to compare the complex finished structure with the the somewhat low-tech building techiniques I wtnessed during the construction (see 'CCTV under construction clip'.)

 

 


CCTV UNDER CONSTRUCTION:
This clip was shot at CCTV Beijing on mini-DV during the construction phase. I was alone on site with the workers and filmed them for 3 days. Their working techniques, tools and attitudes were remarkable.

 
 


SEATTLE LIBRARY: HOMELESS
This clip was filmed in the Seattle library. It includes an interview with a homeless man who frequents the library. He had a unique perspective on the importance of the building. His personal story was also very compelling.
