Editing is about making decisions, thousands and thousands of them. Everything from whether to use a one-frame audio dissolve that will ultimately go unnoticed to how to arrange the scenes of your story in order to create the most powerful dramatic arc—the kind of choice that will ultimately determine the success of your work. Decisions lead to other options which lead to other decisions and on and on, seemingly forever.
Find out the one thing that helps producer Eric Maierson navigate the thousands and thousands of decisions made in the editing suite. (via mediastorm)

On decision-making.

The Discovery of Chicago III - Lake Michigan Ice

On March 10, 2014, Lake Michigan recorded the highest amount of ice cover (93.29%) since 1979 (93.1%)1The polar vortexes are largely responsible for the ice buildup this year.

Lake Michigan is the fifth largest lake in the world, and the largest to be contained within a single country2. Millions of people live along the shoreline, and depend on the lake for drinking water. Over the last decade, the lake has been suffering from depleted water levels. This year’s ice, when it melts, is expected to cause a rise in the level of the lake. Beyond drinking water, Lake Michigan harbours various industries, including tourism and shipping. The AP reports:

The prolonged slump hammered the shipping industry, forcing vessels to carry lighter loads to avoid scraping bottom in channels and ports. Marina owners lost money as slips were too shallow for boats to dock. Vegetation sprang up along waterfronts, frustrating hotel and cottage owners3.

These images were taken on March 30, as I flew from Chicago back to New York City. They were shot while peering out the dirty economy class window of a commercial airliner.

The Discovery of Chicago is a long-term project I began in the summer 2013.
