The only thing Korean about this page is me. The rest is filled with randomness I find on the web. These wares represent the things I find most worthy. Welcome to the Korean General Store.

This is short film at its finest. Though only 8 minutes, this manages to capture all the depth, drama and storyline of a feature length film! -KGS

Why UPS Trucks Don't Turn Left

UPS engineers found that left-hand turns were a major drag on efficiency. Turning against traffic resulted in long waits in left-hand turn lanes that wasted time and fuel, and it also led to a disproportionate number of accidents. By mapping out routes that involved "a series of right-hand loops," UPS improved profits and safety while touting their catchy, environmentally friendly policy. As of 2012, the right turn rule combined with other improvements — for the wow factor, UPS doesn’t separate them out — saved around 10 million gallons of gas and reduced emissions by the equivalent of taking 5,300 cars of the road for a year.

In 2004, Brooklyn-based artist Rachel Sussman embarked on the photographic quest of a lifetime: to document the oldest living things in the world. Now, a decade later, Sussman is still going strong, her journey having taken her to some of the harshest and most remote landscapes, from the Mojave Desert to Antarctica to the Australian Outback. Her unique portraits reveal the living history of our planet as well as what we stand to lose in the future, thanks to climate change and human encroachment.

Bathtub IV

The most recent Vimeo Staff Pick was a tilt shift called Tiny Sidney, but I find that recent tilt shifts pale in comparison to an old faithful, Bathub IV from five years ago. Enjoy. -KGS

Over the course of ten years, Kagawa-based photographer Toshiteru Yamaji captured the special bond between Japanese pig farmer Otchan and his 1,200 pigs. As you can tell by these photos, he cared for each individual pig in a loving and caring way. In Yamaji’s book Pigs and Papa, watch as the cigarette smoking, beer drinking man becomes like their proud papa as he reads the newspaper to the pigs and plays music to them on his guitar.

"Welcome to the end of the world," said a woman as we stepped out of a Bolero jeep, the government escorts trying not to clatter their guns while hopping down from the back. Since leaving the little airport outside of Dimapur, the last four hours had been the most pulse-pounding drive of my life: a cliffside trek where roads lacked guardrails and drivers lacked propensity to slow down for the nauseatingly elevated hairpins turns. As we loaded out of the car, I didn’t think to ask the woman why she called this the "end of the world". There was a feeling I had —somewhere deep inside me like a cavern that had never been lit up— that told me there was nothing beyond this. That this was "it". There was no going back and no going forward. We had arrived at the end.

In the Autumn of 2013, I was one of three filmmakers recruited to explore the work of a team helping children in some of the most ignored area of the globe. Myself and cinematographer Chad Terpstra ventured out into the Indian state of “Nagaland,” one of the most remote regions of the eastern Himalayas to learn about it’s habitants, the health conditions of the children, and a group called “Vitamin Angels”.

This is what happened.

Graphonaute

Science student Hugo Germain (aka. Graphonaute) is just 18 years old, but crates animations and visual effects that seem well beyond his years. Though animation is not his primary focus, Germain spends his spare time mixing live action footage with various 3D tools to create quirky visual effects and experiments. You can see more over on Graphonaute.
