T.C. Christensen’s reel that helped him get accepted into the American Society of Cinematographers in 2010.
A portrait of a friendship / a visual essay that sets out to find connections between the work and lives of two visionary American filmmakers.
Directed by Gabe Klinger / Produced by André S. Labarthe
In 1985, former oil rig worker Richard Linklater began a film screening society in Austin, Texas, that aimed to show classic art-house and experimental films to a budding community of cinephiles and filmmakers. Eventually incorporating as a nonprofit, the newly branded Austin Film Society raised enough money to fly in their first out-of-town invitee: Milwaukee native James Benning, visionary filmmaker, who was then based in New York.
Accepting the invitation, Benning met Linklater and immediately the two began to develop a personal and intellectual bond, leading to future screenings and encounters. Starting in the late ’60s, Benning had been creating structural non-narrative films largely on his own, while Linklater had just begun to craft his first 8 and 16mm shorts. The filmmakers have remained close even as their careers have wildly diverged. After the cult success of Slacker (1991), Linklater went on to make big budget narrative films with Hollywood support. Benning, meanwhile, has stayed close to his modest roots and is mainly an unknown figure in mainstream film culture.
Working with legendary producer André S. Labarthe — who co-created the long-running French television series “Cinéma, de notre temps” (“Cinema of Our Time”) — the critic, teacher, and curator Gabe Klinger set out to document the unique friendship of Benning and Linklater over the course of a few days in Austin and Bastrop, Texas, while the two filmmakers presented Benning’s films at the Austin Film Society, played baseball at Linklater’s home, visited old shooting locations, and talked about their respective filmmaking trajectories over long meals and hikes.

REAL CHANGE follows four homeless individuals who sell Real Change News, a street newspaper in Seattle. As they navigate what many would believe to be the American nightmare, each subject considers what homelessness in America means today. Life in tent encampments, vehicles, motel rooms, and storage units - the film shows the less visible side of homelessness.
The film’s subjects are among the growing number of unemployed, disabled, aging, and discouraged workers who society has left behind. Their story is the story of the other America, the one where, as Buddy McArdle explains in the film, “the best I can hope for at the end of the day is to get my basic needs met.”
Robert is a disabled kidney dialysis patient who lives in his truck with his dog. George is a former carpenter who became homeless after suffering a stroke and losing his home. Buddy is a former blue-collar worker, who has worked his whole life but has never been able to shake his past. Daniel lives in a tent that is his own, but has not felt at home for many years.
Yet, despite their struggles, they persevere. Each sells newspapers to get by. They refuse to give up and work every day to be in control of their lives.
This film gives viewers a glimpse into the reality of homelessness in America, and raises the simple but too often neglected question: “Why?”

Grant Davis is the runner and voice of the film. He’s also probably the smartest friend that I have. He can find meaning to just about everything. If he decides to do something, he’ll do it right, and then he’ll tell you all about why it matters.
I was stoked to team up again with my good friend MP Cunningham to shoot this little film as he always has amazing ideas that make things a million times better.
Sometimes while shooting, I think you can be so overwhelmed and distracted by not only what you see with your eyes but also by what you hear and smell and taste, that it’s hard to actually know how to capture what’s in front of you. Yet there are other times when the complete opposite is true and everything you sense seems to just ease itself into an image. I think a lot of it has to do with you’re intentions, and who you have around you. This was an interesting project because we came into it relatively unscripted and without any real burdening expectations. I think that, coupled with just being with good friends, lent to some good karma. We landed in San Francisco and spent the next 3 days driving north and shooting what we saw along the way.

Vital Films presents “INSIGHT” with Aidan Sheahan. In association with Altitude Filmworks and Aspen/Snowmass.
“Insight” shows a unique look into skiing and the power forged within the athletes mind. As action sports athletes must push themselves physically, they also must equally push themselves mentally.
“Action sports are a mental game. Every trick, variation and landing is generated in your mind as a vision or dream of what you want to do next.”
"Insight" was shot in Aspen/Snomwass terrain parks, using remote controlled drones and a Cineflex Camera. Vital Films is also proud to produce & edit all films using renewable solar energy.

We had a great season here in whistler! I got to shoot with some of whistlers best riders. During WSI I shot lots of the events and acquired some amazing shots. I was skeptical about making a demo reel this season because all I had was park footage. Next season I will be making a short film that will include much more than just park such as urban and backcountry.
