My good friend Chase Korte died in a car accident last weekend, in Los Angeles. He was 24.
I was lucky to know him, lucky to work with him, and lucky to have all this super-8 footage of him still on my hard drive, from a short film I shot for him last summer.
So, even though he was the writer, director and producer of that film, I took the creative liberty of appropriating his footage and cutting together something of my own, to hold onto and remember him by.
Hope he doesn't mind.
It's a big file, and it doesn't follow any of the video haiku rules. Fair warning.

There's something very reassuring to me about Sears - as all the other department stores work continually to make buying socks and other necessities a hipper and more glamorous experience, Sears just doesn't bother. From the ugly fluorescent lighting to the brown carpet, I don't think it's changed a bit since I was a kid.

Grocery stores are such a normal part of our lives in this day and age that I rarely remember to stop and think about how bizarre and amazing it is, that we have fresh fruits and vegetables shipped from around the world and attractively arranged in refrigerated displays for our culinary convenience.
A hundred years ago, a scene like this really would have been far-out science fiction. With Amy, in Minneapolis in January of 2007.

It can be hard to follow the ball in this video, but I was far more interested in the way the light reflected off the metal poles and the plastic players.
