Behind the Scenes of the 96 Minute Shot, The Russian Ark

first_imgHave any other examples of incredibly long takes? Share in the comments below. Take a behind the scenes look at the 96 minute single take movie, The Russian Ark.If you’ve never seen the 2002 historical drama, The Russian Ark you’re missing out. The Russian Ark takes place in the Russian Heritage Museum but is more famous for consisting of a continuous 96-minute shot. Yes you read that correctly, the entire film was shot in a single continuous shot that lasted over an hour and a half.The film took over 4 years to develop and we are not surprised. Not only does the film feature only one-shot but the set design and choreography is amazing. The film had over 2,000 actors, 3 orchestras and spanned over the 33 rooms inside the museum.Here is the entire 96 minute film:The Russian Ark was incredibly well received. With an 89% user rating on Rotten Tomatoes and 4 stars by Roger Ebert, the Russian Ark is impressive in both execution and form.Behind the ScenesThe good people who made the Russian Ark, including the director Aleksandr Sokurov, created an awesome series of behind-the-scenes videos to show how they were able to accomplish such a monumental task. We are especially impressed by the Director of Photography/Steadicam Operator Tilman Buttner who is better known for his work in Run, Lola, Run.last_img read more

Photo finish: S Paul bids goodbye with his camera

first_img(Eds: Recasting overnight story)By Kunal DuttNew Delhi, Aug 18 (PTI) Celebrated photographer S Paul, who died two days before his 87th birthday, left all his belongings behind, except one — his camera.Pauls illustrious career spanned several decades, during which he shot some iconic images, capturing the dramatic quality of nature and human behaviour with equal aplomb.His love for photography was so intense that he always sported a camera around his neck. So, in his death, his family accorded him his most cherished treasure, the camera that served as his friend, philosopher and guide.The 86-year-old photographer, who was born on August 19, also celebrated as World Photography Day, was cremated yesterday at the Nigambodh Ghat here in the presence of his family, friends and admirers.”As his body was being put into the crematorium, his son put one of his cameras on his chest, a symbolic and loving gesture that perhaps could be captured only through a lens, more than through words. It was a gesture befitting for a man who lived and loved photography,” said a photographer and family friend who attended the funeral.Paul Saab”, as he was fondly known, died August 16 at a private hospital. He had been ailing for the last few months.The elder brother of renowned photographer Raghu Rai, he leaves behind an enviable body of work.In an interview to a photo magazine, Paul had once said, “Each of my photographs is like a child to me. I cannot compare them nor say that this one is better than the other.”advertisementPhotographer Ram Rahman also reminisced of his career and recalled the monochrome and colour photographs, many of which became celebrated images showcased at various exhibitions.Born in 1930 in Pakistan, Paul moved to India after the Partition.His affair with the camera began when he bought his first one — a Zeiss Ikon Nettar — and The All-in-One Camera Book, which he read from cover to cover over one night.The affair soon turned into a passion and eventually translated into a career that earned him awards and accolades, at home and abroad.He served in the photo department of the Indian Express for over 25 years, retiring from the paper in 1989 as its chief photographer.Other than the awards to his credit, his work was widely published across the world.He remained a prolific photographer till the end. And the last image of the photographer was, as always, with a camera on his chest. PTI KND BDS ANB 08172248 MINlast_img read more

Career Playoff-high 30 for Giannis, But Raptors Beat Bucks (Video)

first_imgTORONTO (AP) — Putting Norm Powell in the starting lineup has changed the playoff fortunes of the Toronto Raptors.Powell scored a career playoff-high 25 points, Kyle Lowry had 16 points and 10 assists and the Raptors beat the Milwaukee Bucks 118-93 in Game 5 of their first-round series on Monday night. Raptors coach Dwane Casey said Powell has been “a spark plug.”Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with a career playoff-high 30 points while Brogdon scored 19 points and Greg Monroe had 11.The best plays from Giannis​ as he records a playoff career high 30 points to go along with 9 rebounds, 3 dimes and 3 blocks in Game 5!!— Milwaukee Bucks (@Bucks) April 25, 2017“In this series, he’s been the X-factor,” Casey said.Serge Ibaka scored 19 points and DeMar DeRozan had 18 for the Raptors, who can advance to face defending champion Cleveland in the second round with a victory in Game 6 at Milwaukee on Thursday night.“We’ve got to treat it like Game 7, period,” DeRozan said. “We can’t be happy with these last two games. We’ve just got to treat this next game like it’s Game 7.”Many in the sellout crowd of 20,251 rose to their feet and chanted ‘Raps in six’ in the final minute of the game.“If we want to continue to play, if we want to push it to a Game 7, we’ve got to win at home,” Bucks rookie point guard Malcolm Brogdon said. “If we don’t come out and give the energy that we need to then we’ll lose and we’ll be done.”Pressed into action after Milwaukee routed Toronto 104-77 in Game 3, Powell delivered a much-needed jolt of energy and athleticism as Toronto ground out a victory in Game 4.On Monday, Powell added scoring punch to his playoff resume. He connected on all four of his 3-point attempts and brought the crowd to its feet with a baseline dunk over Antetokounmpo and Thon Maker in the fourth quarter.“Powell has come in with a lot of energy on both sides of the ball and they’re feeding off of that,” Bucks coach Jason Kidd said.“He’s playing extremely hard and he’s knocking down shots. When you look at the stat sheet, he’s picked them up here the last couple of games just with his energy and his spirit.”Brogdon said Powell has given Toronto more versatility.“They move the ball better with him in the game,” Brogdon said. “They can spread the floor better, everybody can attack, everybody can make plays.”Toronto lost Game 6 on the road at Indiana in the first round and at Miami in the second round last year, rebounding to win Game 7 at home each time. They were eliminated in six games in the Eastern Conference Final against the Cavs, losing at home in the clincher.DeMarre Carroll scored 12 points as all five Raptors starters reached double figures. Cory Joseph had 10 points off the bench for Toronto.Ibaka and Powell each scored nine points in the first and the Raptors used a 17-0 run to open a 31-20 lead after the opening quarter. Milwaukee committed five turnovers in the first, leading to 10 points for Toronto.“Our defense kind of got hit again in the first quarter,” Kidd said. “We knew they were going to come after us, we had to expect that, and we just couldn’t respond.”Monroe and Jonas Valanciunas were called for double technicals after a minor shoving match under the Milwaukee basket in the third. After Valanciunas took exception to a hard foul from Khris Middleton, Monroe pushed his own teammate out of the way so he could shove Valanciunas.TIP-INSBucks: Middleton started despite suffering from an illness. He scored eight points … Milwaukee missed five of seven free-throw attempts in the first half. They finished 15 for 26 … The Bucks didn’t have any second-chance points. … Antetokounmpo had nine rebounds.Raptors: The Raptors finished with 28 assists, one shy of their season-high. … Toronto scored 30 or more in two quarters after doing so just once in the previous four games. … The Raptors went 24 for 26 at the free-throw line. DeRozan and Valanciunas each had one miss.NOT BACKING DOWNLowry started despite not being able to participate in shootaround because of a stiff back. He remained standing during timeouts and lay down on the court when he came out of the game. “He’s a tough kid,” Casey said. “You’re going to have to take an arm and a leg off him before you keep him from playing.”HORROR SHOWToronto’s Carroll said a “heated film session” following the Game 3 blowout loss helped the Raptors regain their focus. “A lot of times when you get in a heated film session it can go bad or it can go good,” Carroll said. “I feel like we came together, we saw the problem and we’re just trying to build from this.IAN HARRISON, Associated PressTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Tsitsipas to US Open Umpire in Tirade: ‘You’re All Weirdos!’ (Videos)

first_imgNEW YORK — Stefanos Tsitsipas accused a U.S. Open chair umpire of having a bias against him during a tirade in which he told the official, “You’re all weirdos!”Tsitsipas told Damien Dumusois that the cause of his bias was “because you’re French probably and you’re all weirdos!”The argument came midway through the fourth set of Tsitsipas’ 6-4, 6-7 (5), 7-6 (7), 7-5 loss to Andrey Rublev on Tuesday, a day when he and fellow young star Dominic Thiem both lost in the first round for the second straight major tournament.Tsitsipas, the No. 8 seed from Greece, appeared to be battling cramps and was slow to return to the court after losing his serve.Dumusois told Tsitsipas it was time to play, but Tsitsipas was still reaching into his bag for a new headband and screamed at Dumusois that he still needed time to change. Dumusois responded that Tsitsipas would be penalized.“I don’t care,” Tsitsipas replied. “Do whatever you want, because you’re the worst.”“I don’t know what you have against me,” Tsitsipas continued. “Because you’re French probably and you’re all weirdos! You’re all weirdos!””You have something against me. You’re French, probably. … You’re all weirdos.” Things didn’t go to plan for No. 8 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the first round of the #USOpenMORE:— ESPN Australia & NZ (@ESPNAusNZ) August 27, 2019Dumusois is indeed French.Tsitsipas had been angry that Dumusois believed he was getting coaching during the match from his father, Apostolos, which is not allowed.“The chair umpire was very incorrect in what he was telling me during the match,” Tsitsipas said afterward. “I don’t know what this chair umpire has in specific against my team, but he’s been complaining and telling me that my team talks all of the time when I’m out on the court playing. He’s very — I don’t know. I believe he’s not right, because I never hear anything of what my team says from the outside.”Tsitsipas added that he thought tennis needed more umpires who are fair to all players.“I feel like some of them have preferences when they are on the court,” he said.Tsitsipas opened his Grand Slam season by beating Roger Federer en route to the Australian Open semifinals. He fell at Wimbledon to Thomas Fabbiano, who then sent Thiem to another quick exit by beating the No. 4 seed 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 on a day when four top-10 seeds in the bottom half of the bracket were upset.The two-time French Open runner-up said he was battling an illness leading into the tournament and said he was exhausted after two sets.“I’m far away from 100%,” Thiem said. “Like this, it’s very tough to win.”Tsitsipas was clear that his problems stemmed from the influence of Dumusois.“Well, it’s not very pleasant when you have the umpire give you warnings and time violations and coaching violations during a match,” Tsitsipas said. “It can affect your thinking. It can affect your decision-making.”By BRIAN MAHONEY AP Sports WriterTweetPinShare77 Shareslast_img read more

Australia: Queensland Government to Decide on Future …

first_imgzoom The Queensland Government has concluded an assessment of proposals for a cruise ship terminal on the Southport Broadwater undertaken for the Gold Coast City Council.Deputy Premier and Minister for State Development, Infrastructure and Planning, Jeff Seeney said the preliminary assessment found it is possible for one of two proposed projects to proceed and it would now be up to Council and the possible proponent to further progress this proposal.“The State Government understands the potential economic benefits a cruise ship terminal could deliver to the Gold Coast and we will continue to make state land available, should the issues identified by this assessment be adequately addressed by Council and the possible proponent,” Mr Seeney said.“In November 2012 the Queensland Government agreed to undertake a joint competitive procurement process at Council’s request, offering potential rights to develop the Broadwater Marine Project on state land including Wavebreak Island and land on the Western Foreshore of The Spit.“That process is now complete and has concluded that one proponent’s plan has demonstrated a cruise ship terminal is a possibility that could be further developed, should the Council and the proponent choose to progress it.“Possible proponents, the ASF Consortium and Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate are now free to work together to address a number of outstanding issues highlighted during the assessment process, including the need for extensive community consultation, environmental studies and infrastructure planning.“In summary, while the State Assessment team has identified the possibility that the ASF Consortium could deliver a cruise ship terminal, their proposal has not yet ticked all the boxes for the taxpayers of Queensland.“That said, and despite the State Government involvement in this assessment being finalised, we are prepared to give the proponent and Council further opportunity to overcome the significant challenges identified.”Mr Seeney said he had written to Councillor Tate detailing these issues and clarifying the State Government’s position on the potential allocation of a gaming licence to a potential cruise ship terminal operator.“The ASF consortium is free to participate in the Queensland Government’s current Expressions of Interest process to develop two Integrated Resort Developments with associated gaming licences in regional Queensland,” he said.“However the proponent must understand that, in this instance, a gaming licence is conditional on the prior establishment and ongoing operation of a successful cruise ship terminal – no cruise ship terminal, no casino licence.”Mr Seeney said the State Government had also ruled out the issuing of a temporary casino licence associated with the potential construction of a cruise ship terminal on the Southport Broadwater.“My Department and I are available to continue discussions on how outstanding issues might be addressed by either the Council or the possible proponent prior to the consideration of State land being made available.” Queensland Government, February 14, 2014 Print  Close My location 此页面无法正确加载 Google 地图。您是否拥有此网站?确定last_img read more

Rwanda UN court upholds 25year jail terms on two convicted for genocide

29 September 2011The United Nations war crimes tribunal for Rwanda today upheld 25-year jail terms imposed on a former top military officer and a landowner for genocide in the massacres that killed some 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus, often by machete or club, during a 100-day period in 1994. The appeals chamber of the UN International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) dismissed the appeal by Lieutenant Colonel Ephrem Setako, who was also head of the defence ministry’s division of legal affairs, upholding his conviction for genocide for ordering the killings on 25 April 1994, of 30 to 40 Tutsis at Mukamira military camp and some 10 other Tutsis there on 11 May.It also confirmed his convictions for extermination as a crime against humanity and for violence to life, health and physical or mental well-being of persons as a serious violation of the Geneva Conventions that govern the treatment of prisoners of war.The chamber also upheld the 25-year jail term imposed on Yussuf Munyakazi, a former farmer and landowner, for genocide and extermination as a crime against humanity based on his role in the killings of Tutsi at Shangi and Mibilizi parishes on 29 and 30 April 1994, respectively. read more

Angry Birds Rio gets exclusive levels with Rio The Movie DVD Bluray

first_imgAngry Birds fans are no strangers to the CGI movie Rio, which was released in March by 20th Century Fox. Angry Birds Rio launched alongside the movie with 45 levels and continued with additional updates throughout the past few months. It’s about time for the DVD version of the theatrical hit to come out, but it wouldn’t be like Rovio to not take advantage of a potential marketing opportunity.Rovio will be offering a special code with the purchase of a Rio DVD or Blu-ray that’s redeemable on the Android Market, iTunes App Store, or on PC or Mac computers. The special code will give you access to 15 exclusive new levels. This is apparently the first time an Android or iPhone game has been joined with a DVD release, and it’s not a bad idea. Actually, we wonder why it hasn’t already been done.AdChoices广告With most people just streaming movies online via Netflix, DVD sales are not what they used to be. This little strategy between 20th Century Fox and Rovio guarantees that completist Angry Birds fans will fork over the cash to buy the movie, even if all they want is the exclusive levels.The movie is only 96 minutes long, but 15 new levels of Angry Birds can provide hours of entertainment. However, the film grossed $473 million in theaters worldwide, so it’ll probably still do fairly well with video sales.Rio is a kids movie, and if you think flinging birds at pigs in order to kill them sounds a little too violent for your kid, then keep the Angry Birds Rio code for yourself and let your child enjoy the “Coloring with Blu” app for Apple and Android tablets that features the main character, voiced by Jesse Eisenberg, and 60 pages of pictures that you can color, print, or share via Facebook or e-mail. The app only comes with the Blu-ray version, though. Rovio has certainly done a good job at dipping its toes in a number of different pools.The game is accessible on Android, iPhone, Windows Phone 7, PC and Mac, and even on the Roku.via USA Todaylast_img read more

Lender Poll Regulation a Top Priority

first_img Since his inauguration, President Trump has shown policy changes to the mortgage industry is one of his top priorities. From indefinitely suspending a cut to mortgage insurance rates within an hour of being sworn in to recent speculation on what his tax reform means for home buyers, everyone seems to be discussing the impending effects of regulation and policy changes, including Lenders One Mortgage Barometer, who conducted a recent survey of 200 mortgage professionals. Of those polled, 73 percent share President Trump’s sentiment that policy changes would be beneficial to the lending market. One specific regulation that adds a burden to institutions is federal requirements on collecting and reporting mortgage data as outlined by the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA).The HMDA was enacted in 1975 in light of concerns that some financial institutions were not providing adequate home financing to qualified buyers in urban neighborhoods. Designed to promote transparency, it required lenders to disclose the details of loan applications, such as the applicant’s race, gender, ethnicity, gender, loan amount, type of dwelling, and whether or not the loan was awarded.Data collection, however, costs money, and while 42 percent of those surveyed said that their primary investment was in operational changes, such as hiring new staff, and maintaining compliance and software support, 32 percent of those said they were having a difficult time securing resources to collect, analyze, and report the data. This could be one reason for the rising cost of loans, and 65 percent of those surveyed said they believed loan costs would continue to climb.One way to lower the cost for collecting, maintaining, and reporting the data required by the HMDA is the automation that comes when institutions close mortgages electronically through e-closings. However, 39 percent of surveyed lenders are not currently using e-closings, and only one-third of those expect to implement it within the next one or two years. Of the 61 percent that said they were using e-closing, two-thirds have been in business over 10 years, suggesting that smaller lenders with fewer resources were the primary group struggling to keep up with data collection requirements.While it remains unclear which, if any, of President Trump’s future policy changes will effect HMDA or data reporting requirements, it is clear from the survey that a large majority (65 percent) of mortgage professionals are “very prepared” for some sort of change, however that may look.Methodology The Lenders One Mortgage Barometer was conducted online among a random sample of 200 mortgage lenders. Fieldwork was conducted by independent research firm Ebiquity between January 4 and 14, 2017. The margin of error associated with the sample of n=200 is +/- 6.9 percent at a 95 percent confidence level.

first_imgIf you were watching the Hall of Fame game on August 5th, chances are you saw how inept the Cardinals offense looked in the first quarter.The unit started slow in the season’s first preseason game of the year. A 15-yard scamper by LaRod Stephens-Howling was negated by a Kevin Kolb interception on the next play. The second offensive possession went three-and-out and the third, you guessed it, three-and-out.See a pattern here? Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away But head coach Ken Whisenhunt understands that it is all part of a process that will benefit his team in the long run.“I think everything we’re doing in practices and training camp is about being more efficient,” Whisenhunt said on Wednesday. “[Being efficient] allows us to have opportunities to start faster,” highlighting the team’s 14-play, 90-yard drive, that culminated in a 4-yard Alfonso Smith touchdown run.The five-pass, nine-rush play selection indicates a more balanced offensive game plan which is something Whisenhunt says will encourage tenacity in the unit.“It’s really all about making some plays early in the game. You don’t expect it to happen in the first preseason game and as we get a little bit more time with our [first unit] and their plan together, we’ll make a few more plays that will help build our confidence.”The Cardinals face Kansas City on Friday in their second preseason game, where the offensive will be expected to display the poise Whisenhunt (and fans) desire. – / 9 Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Top Stories center_img What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Comments   Share   D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’last_img read more

Comments   Share   The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories “Yeah, I thought he was going to catch it so that’s why I really wasn’t tuned all the way in because I was ready to go block for him, but he freaking dropped the interception,” Peterson said with a laugh. “That’s why I threw it back at him, and he still dropped it!”“When I see him pick it up I already knew what was coming,” Cromartie said. “I put my hands up quick.”Peterson added he and Cromartie rag on each other all the time for dropping interceptions, which is why he threw the ball back to his teammate “pretty hard.”Cromartie said he and Peterson just “bust out laughing” when it happened, which, in a way, underscores what the Pro Bowl is all about. Yes, everyone would like to play well and ultimately win the game. The night ended with Team Irvin knocking off Team Carter 32-28. While all four Cardinals — Peterson, Cromartie, Calais Campbell and Justin Bethel — were on the losing side, it does little to diminish the experience. “It’s fun. You come out here and enjoy yourself, you run with a couple of guys that you play with in the league for a while, you see some new faces, guys that are making the Pro Bowl for the first time, and you get to enjoy it,” said Cromartie, who played in his fourth Pro Bowl on Sunday. “You get to spend some of their money when you’re poolside and everything else.”center_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires – / 21 But it sure would have been nice to add an interception to the experience.“I just dropped it, damn,” Cromartie said with a smile. “Can’t say nothing about it, I just dropped it.”last_img read more
