We Say Goodbye to Sean Clifford

Today we wish one of our own the greatest of luck as Sean Clifford departs StreetFilms in pursuit of the lights, glamour and (gulp!) gridlock of Los Angeles to pursue a film career. Sean produced quite a few videos for us here, especially notable is this video on Grand Army Plaza which may one day […]

Thanks to everyone who has helped contribute - our crew, webmasters, musicians, volunteers, people in the community, fellow bloggers helping to spread the word and our partners at TOPP, T.A., PPS […]

Just returned from City Repair's 7th Annual Village Building Convergence in Portland, Oregon where hundreds of neighbors, students, and volunteers are taking back their streets to make them more livable, and community-oriented. Of the dozens of seminars, celebrations and building projects going on, StreetFilms loves the Intersection Repair. An Intersection Repair usually involves painting an […]

A StreetFilm in Portuguese and more!

Our "Interview with Enrique Penalosa" has been translated into Portuguese at dotsub.com. As a result it's also subtitled in English for the hearing imparied.

Later this May, StreetFilms will be posting the WORLD WEB PREMIERE of "Contested Streets: Breaking New York City Gridlock." The film explores the history of NYC's streets and contrasts our current transportation policies with some of the achievements of cities like London, Paris, and Copenhagen, where car travel is being deemphasized in favor of safer […]

Photo: Physically Separated Bike Lane…sorta

This Park Slope phenomenon is interesting. On street cleaning rule days, people in the Slope will still double park, but they do it outside the bike lane!

Mark Your Calendars for StreetFilms!

David Byrne’s Bike STOLEN!

Sad news to report...David Byrne's bike has been taken by a cowardly thief!! Dang! You may ask yourself, "Who would do such a thing?" Unfortunately, those of us in NYC know it is all too common.

How do I make a better StreetFilm?

We recently recieved this nice comment: IanD: "...the work that [StreetFilms] is doing is fantastic and makes the stories on the streets really accessible. I’d love to add more well-produced pieces, but just don’t have the technical skills...Would you be interested in sharing some hints and tips?" Clarence: In late Spring, we plan to host […]

Victory!

I'd like to think we had a little something to do with this.

The Battle in Park Slope

What's going on in Park Slope, Brooklyn is a microcosm of the war that is being waged all over NYC: communities with smart ideas, good intentions and the capacity for volunteerism are being completely ignored by the Department of Transportation in the planning process. Yesterday, Sean and I went out to cover a public planning […]
