The Last Move Launches Today on Short of the Week

We are thrilled that one of MediaStorm’s latest films, The Last Move, has been selected by Short of the Week and is today’s pick. Short of the Week is an online, year-round film festival for shorts that has been discovering and promoting the greatest and most innovative stories from around the world since 2007.

The Last Move tells the story of Michael Thomasson, who has passionately spent a lifetime amassing the world’s largest video game collection, even recognized by the Guinness Book of World’s Records. But with his mother sick and facing an enormous mortgage, Michael decides to put his collection up for sale, and hopes that someone will pay enough to cover his costs.

Watch the film here, “like” it on Vimeo, share it, and spread the word to other lovers of shorts and good stories.

MediaStorm Salutes Veterans

We are proud to document the stories of the men and women who risk their lives to serve and protect our country, and the families that stand behind them. This Veteran’s Day, we honor their sacrifices with these films.

The War Comes Home, by Soledad O’Brien and MediaStorm , takes an intimate look at two veterans as they struggle with the transition from war to home. The film first aired on CNN and pays tribute to the invisible wounds of too many of our soldiers.

Homecoming tells the story of Major Amy Quesenberry’s transition from solider to civilian.  The veteran unemployment rate is nearly double the national average. That is simply unacceptable to Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who believes that veterans can become assets to any company.

To those who serve in the armed forces, what is the aftereffect of war? The Marlboro Marine is photographer Luis Sinco’s portrait of Marine Corporal James Blake Miller, whom he met in Iraq. For Miller, coming home has been its own battle.

For each of the more than four thousand U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq, there is an American family undone by grief. Never Coming Home takes us inside these families, to meet the people and sift through the emotions that are left behind.
