An eGuiders web video premiere: This one-of-a-kind short could be 'documentary stop-motion' at its best. On New Years Day 1997, Montreal filmmaker Ezra Soiferman decided on a whim to walk the entire seven-mile length of New York's famed Broadway and film it. Music is by the band Ashkhabad from Turkmenistan on Peter Gabriel's Real World Records. Making the video even more impressive is the fact that all the images are as the filmmaker shot them 'in-camera' (no editing afterwards) and jive incredibly well to the unlikely tune. Take a very special trip down Broadway in this exclusive eGuiders.com online premiere.
eGuider: Marc Ostrick
Marcâ€™s a filmmaker and new-media activist at heart. He recently produced and directed segments for Obamaâ€™s historic American Stories, American Solutions television special. In 2007, Marc was fortunate to break new ground on HBOâ€™s John From Cincinnati as the first new-media filmmaker embedded into a television series to organically extend the characters and universe of the show online. In 2005, working with Fox Television and Verizon, Marc got to direct 24: CONSPIRACY - the first original mobile series that was created as a spin-off of the hit TV show 24 and was nominated for an Emmy Award. When heâ€™s not creating content or telling everyone he knows about amazing online videos, Marc is hanging out with his beautiful wife and little girl.
