The largest glacier calving ever filmed
This is pretty impressive…
"On May 28, 2008, Adam LeWinter and Director Jeff Orlowski filmed a historic breakup at the Ilulissat Glacier in Western Greenland. The calving event lasted for 75 minutes and the glacier retreated a full mile across a calving face three miles wide. The height of the ice is about 3,000 feet, 300-400 feet above water and the rest below water."

How wolves change rivers
A short story about how the reintroduction of the species wolf into the Yellowstone National Park changed the appearance of the landscape and the behavior and numbers of animals. Great short film to learn about the effects of trophic cascades and the concept of key species in ecosystems.
Regarding the current discussion in Australia replace wolves with sharks and rivers with the ocean…
Pro Infirmis - “Because who is perfect?
An awesome campaign!!
"Disabled mannequins will be eliciting astonished looks from passers-by on Zurich’s Bahnhofstrasse today. Between the perfect mannequins, there will be figures with scoliosis or brittle bone disease modelling the latest fashions. One will have shortened limbs; the other a malformed spine. The campaign has been devised for the International Day of Persons with Disabilities by Pro Infirmis, an organisation for the disabled.
Entitled “Because who is perfect? Get closer.”, it is designed to provoke reflection on the acceptance of people with disabilities. Director Alain Gsponer has captured the campaign as a short film.
The figures are life-sized, three-dimensional representations of Miss Handicap 2010, Jasmin Rechsteiner, radio presenter and film critic Alex Oberholzer, track and field athlete Urs Kolly, blogger Nadja Schmid and actor Erwin Aljukic.
"We often go chasing after ideals instead of accepting life in all its diversity. Pro Infirmis strives especially for the acceptance of disability and the inclusion of people with disabilities," says Mark Zumbühl, a member of the Pro Infirmis Executive Board, in describing the campaign."
Short and pretty awesome TV-commercial of The Canadian Institute of Diversity and Inclusion to promote human and LGBT rights at the Winter Olympics currently taking place in Sochi, Russia.
