We love Streetfilms here at ABC, and what’s not to love. In the days of mass consumption where our media consumption must be fast and concise short videos have become an important way to consume information. So when they started a series called “Moving Beyond the Automobile,” especially here at ABC, you can’t help but check it out.
Moving Beyond the Automobile is a ten part video series which explores solutions to the problem of automobile dependency. It’s a visual handbook that will help guide policy makers, advocacy organizations, teachers, students, and others into a world that values pedestrian plazas over parking lots and train tracks over highways. Cars were then, and this is now. Welcome to the future.
I know it says ten parts, but at last count there were eleven plus a trailer. Only six films have been released so far, and with titles like “Highway Removal” and “Road Diet” I can’t wait for them to come out with the rest. Luckily the bicycling one has been released. God knows they have enough stock footage to put it together.
