Streetfilms News: Podcasts, YouTube, Twitter and “Streetfilms Shorties”

You’ve been asking for more ways to get your Streetfilms fix, and now you’ve got ’em.

In addition to now posting all of our new films directly to YouTube, we’ve started podcasting on iTunes and Miro, making it easy to enjoy the latest and greatest from Streetfilms just about anywhere. Currently, our top 25 films are available for download and we’re working on getting the entire Streetfilms collection up pronto.

In other exciting news, Streetfilms is Twittering away, keeping you up to date on where we are and what we’re working on. Follow us and you’ll get instant notification about our latest films and ways you can contribute.

And via Twitter, you’ll also get instant access to our newest creation: "Streetfilms Shorties." These are little fun bits of video — sometimes just one shot, never longer than a minute — we may have captured while out and about that doesn’t yield a full traditional Streetfilm, but are intriguing. These shorts will only appear on our YouTube account and we’ll immediately Tweet them. Wanna see our first stab? Check it out above.

Finally, we’ll have some very exciting news in mid-October concerning the Streetfilms site as a whole. So stay tuned.

  • somebody kick that shit over!

  • That is exactly what I was going to post. That person is just *asking* for someone to do some damage to that thing.

  • Bystander

    Why not just move it. Maybe into the traffic lane?

  • Clarence Eckerson Jr.

    I actually tried to move it and it was locked up in that position. I thought maybe I could nudge it, but it was either locked or something. Though since I have never touched one of those before, I could have been doing something wrong.

    The crazy thing is the first time I was making that turn I of course didn’t have the camera on, and I could see the cars all in a line so I thought all was fine. Damn good thing someone didn’t get hurt. When I came back about a 1/2 hour later it was gone.

    I bet one of the cars moved it there so they can park. I doubt it was the scooter driver, they don’t often find trouble parking.

  • I agree with Steve. I used to ride motorcycles and it’s very common for drivers to move motorcycles and scooters so that they can have the parking space. No wonder motorcyclists often park at bike racks and remove the plates!

    Many years ago the City has specially designated Motorcycle Parking areas where two wheeled vehicles could be parked without this kind of interference. Integrating dedicated motorcycle and scooter parking into these parking zones certainly wouldn’t be the worst idea.


The Most Influential Streetfilm of All Time

For the last 12 weeks we’ve been counting down the most influential Streetfilms in preparation for our 10-year anniversary benefit, which is coming up on Monday. When we picked that date, we knew a long and draining election season would be over, but we did not anticipate this result. We’re looking forward to gathering with our readers […]

Streetsblog and Streetfilms Are Searching for a Development Director

After three stellar years with Streetsblog and Streetfilms, our development director Christa Orth is embarking on a new chapter with the fundraising consultancy Wingo. Christa masterminded the creation of a fundraising system essentially from scratch, and it’s safe to say Streetsblog and Streetfilms would not be in the position we are today without her. If […]

Streetfilms: Return of Bike Box!

We can’t set this one up any better than Mr. Eckerson himself, so without further ado: At just about any public gathering I go these days, there’s usually at least one person who will come up and give me an enthusiastic "Bike Box!", based upon our earlier, popular Streetfilm. In my heart I hoped there […]
