Shooting Burning Man

Just days before we head off to another Burn, Dust Culture collaborator Jan Beddegenoodts brings us this short film which, ironically, deals with the fact that there might be too many people with cameras out in the desert. It’s a timely reminder to all of us media makers that it’s up to us to figure out where to draw the line between getting that shot and preserving the playa as a safe zone for other forms of expression.

Genesis

For every one who says Burning Man is over, there is someone else who is busy proving that it isn’t. Casey Ho is a 3rd-time Burner who brought an impressive piece to the 2014 Burn. We like his piece a lot because it’s a commentary on the Creation Myth of Burning Man, and it’s also a counter-culture within the counter-culture. As long as there are thoughtful people like him within the community, Burning Man will keep going strong.
