“Big Mike Takes Lunch” by filmmaker Nicolas Heller, is a documentary that captures a day in the life of Michael Saviello, manager of 40 years for the iconic East Village barber shop, Astor Place Hairstylists. For the past year, Mike has devoted his 45-minute lunch break to something he hasn’t done since Highschool… Painting.

Follow Mike as he takes you on a journey through his shop full of characters and the storage unit he’s turned into his personal art studio, adding another uniquely New York charm to one of The city’s best kept secrets.

In conjunction with the screening of the film, Big Mike will be having his first ever art show at Astor Place Hairstylists on November 17th at 8:30pm.

Also check out my Pyongyang film here: vimeo.com/300271709

A few weeks back I had the chance to visit Pyongyang and attend the Mass Games there. This show is by far the most incredible and amazing performance I have ever laid my eyes on. Watch this 4 minute film and you will know why. Only a communist country can pull something like this off I guess. However, I do not want to get involved in politics here, so please do your own research.

Many thanks to Simon Cockerell and Jessica Mader from Koryo Tours ( koryogroup.com ) and Ri So Hyang, Kim Sun Mi, Lee Song Hyok, Kim Yong Un from KITC for arranging permissions and making this project possible.
By the way: I did not get paid to shoot this film!

Mass Games can basically be described as a synchronized socialist-realist spectacular, featuring over 100,000 participants in a 90-minute display of gymnastics, dance, acrobatics, and dramatic performance, accompanied by music and other effects, all wrapped in a highly politicized package. Students practiced every day from January onwards. The 90 minute performance is held every evening at 7pm and features the ‘largest picture in the world’ a giant mosaic of individual students each holding a book whose pages links with their neighbours’ to make up one gigantic scene. When the students turn the pages the scene or individual elements of the scene change, up to 170 pages make up one book.
In August 2007, the Mass Games were recognised by Guinness World Records as the largest gymnastic display with 100,090 participants at the May Day Stadium in Pyongyang. (Source Wikipedia)

The Island of Hawai’i, the largest of the archipelago, only continues to grow larger. Two of its five volcanoes remain active, with Kilauea continuing to erupt and add mass to the island today.
This video chronicles a short journey through the various terrains and astonishing landscapes of Hawai’i, one million years in the making. Accompanied by classic Polynesian drums, this minute and a half piece takes us through the Northern Coast’s spectacular valleys, above the clouds on the summit of Mauna Kea, and into the fires of Kilauea.
