Another great example that there is more to life than still photography. SBS TV aired this short film several times a couple of years ago -it’s brilliant. It’s a film by Ola Simonsson and Johannes Stjarne Nilsson from Kostr-film. A crazy composition of household objects that will have you strumming your dental floss differently every night!

Last night I suddenly remembered this short film by New York Photographer and designer, Sheldon Nadelman. This film was shown on SBS TV in 2005, it is fantastic, and stuck in my mind as a must see for any photographer or student who is thinking about making a short film from their images. Sheldon, blends thousands of b/w still images with video interviews, wild-sound and contemporary music to create richly layered and textural film piece. Unfortunately, you have to purchase the film, but the 2 minute trailer gives you some idea.
Terminal Bar is a 22 minute, photo-driven documentary of one of the toughest, grittiest bars in Manhattan as seen through the haunting black and white photographs taken by Sheldon Nadelman from 1972 to 1982.
During his 10 year tenure as bartender and day manager, Sheldon amassed over 2,500 portraits of his customers as well as other images of the activities inside and outside of the bar.
‘Terminal Bar’ examines the nature of the establishment, its transformation from an Irish bar to a gay bar, the old timers, winos, junkies, drag queens, and cooks, from the viewpoint of Sheldon and two contemporaneously written news articles.
