In Mother Russia, wood is an important resource for survival and life… well, at least in the old days that is. For over a thousand years, almost everything was made from the strong trees in the country. These included houses, mills, barns, palaces, plows, carts and churches. Up until the 18th century, many beautiful domed structures were designed and built in the country, with The Russian Orthodox Churches being particularly beautiful. To cap it off? They were all built without hammer and nails. [Read more...]

As she tells Featureshoot, “I save things everywhere I go and then when I am making work I have this huge repository of saved images and objects to pull from. My studio is just packed with stuff. It comes from everywhere, the garbage, scraps of images from other projects, flea markets, by the pound stores, my parents’ basement.” [Read more...]

What if there was no such thing as privacy in the world. What if there was a group of people who had access to all your information. What might that group possibly do and how would the people react?

He and his friends decide to fight back in full force. Does this story sound somewhat familiar? Edward Snowden has done something similar by becoming a whistle blower on the NSA, yet this story was written before the Snowden episode. Currently Schiefer and crew are looking for support in all ways, hoping to make their dream a reality and begin filming in San Francisco. [Read more...]
