Seven years after an Enbridge pipeline spilled between 840,000 and 1.1 million gallons of oil into Talmage Creek and the Kalamazoo River, cleanup efforts are still ongoing.

Caryn Ganz, Joe Cascarelli, Jon Caramanica, and Jon Pareles did this great interactive piece for the NYT yesterday, “Women are making the best rock music today. Here are the bands that prove it.”
I appreciated the storytelling and the mixed media (and dug the band Snail Mail). And found this excerpt to be insightful:
A lot of people (myself included) would love to sit down behind a drum set and go right into a solo or grab a guitar and wail on it. But when you do that without experience or education – it can sound like sh#t.

Jason Roark is a cinematographer and director living in Portland, Oregon. He’s worked as a commercial DP for advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy, and is known for his music video work for bands like the Decemberists, Electric Six, Calexico and Black Prairie. When he’s not building jib arms, and messing around with his many cameras and gadgets, he also finds time to play in bands, and edit video content. And, while the two aren’t related, he’s probably the only camera/guitar pro you’ll find who has both opened for the B52’s and filmed Christopher Lloyd. You can see some of Jason’s videos here and and an Old Spice commercial he lensed below.
