Rivertown Film Presents

Showing: Continuously from 12/9 through 12/18
Title: Rockland in Motion 2022
Year: 2022
Country: USA

If you were to make a short film, what would it be about? Rockland in Motion provides an answer from fourteen of our Rockland County neighbors. Filmmakers have been living and working in Rockland County since early in the silent era, some providing their talents to the commercial film and television industries, others working independently, and many doing both. Some see themselves as artists, often working in disciplines such as visual art, photography, dance, or poetry, as well as film. Others see film as an extension of journalism. And many have focused on specific skills that earn them a living within the film industry, such as directing, producing, cinematography, editing, and designing. Rockland in Motion reminds us that a wide range of filmmakers live and work in our communities, that they contribute to local culture and commerce, and that making and understanding visual media is an important part of a good education.

ROCKLAND IN MOTION 2022 is FREE and will begin streaming on December 9 and will run through December 18. Donations are accepted and will help provide for Rockland in Motion 2023.

TO VIEW ROCKLAND IN MOTION visit our Virtual Theater, HERE. You’ll receive a receipt / link to the film (the “watch” page where you “bought” your free ticket). Save that email so you can return easily! You will have 3 days to start watching, and once you start you can watch as often as you want to for the next ten days. Watch them all at once, or come and go as you please. In the description below the viewing window, you’ll find the order of the films as well as the time at which they appear in the program, so you can easily find what you are looking for. Having technical problems? Please use the “need help” link at the upper right of the page. You’ll be taken to a FAQ page (where you can find instructions for connecting to your big screen TV) and a link for live chat support that works really well.

MEET THE FILMMAKERS at a Zoom meeting on Tuesday, December 13 at 7:00pm. Who are our filmmakers and why did they choose to tell this story? Find out by registering for the zoom, HERE

Dance To Me Is … (3:50, dance), by Nyack Center Youth
Dance class is always full of energy, and the kids did not shy away from showing their dance moves on camera. After an introduction to filmmaking, the youth transformed some of their dance sessions into film sessions. Everyone couldn’t make it for one specific day, so we shot during two to three different days, so no one was left out. After we got our dance footage, all the kids recorded a voice-over expressing what dance means.

O jogo móvel tem vindo a crescer há vários anos. Naturalmente, os melhores casinos online também reagem à tendência e fornecem-lhe várias aplicações ou websites móveis. Nesta página, dedicamo-nos especificamente às últimas e mais populares opções de jogos móveis que são oferecidas no mundo dos casinos em linha. No teste encontrará toda a informação sobre aplicações para dispositivos Android e iOS, assim como websites móveis.
Cada casino móvel Português tem a sua própria forma de "fornecer" aos jogadores slots móveis e clássicos. Alguns dependem de aplicações especiais para smartphones Android, bem como para iPhones ou mesmo iPads. Geralmente, os pequenos programas funcionam nos telemóveis correspondentes, mas também é maravilhoso jogar em movimento com um tablet.
Outras empresas, contudo, juram pelos sites da HMTL5. Este é, por assim dizer, o casino original com quase todo o portfólio em forma comprimida. Ambas as variantes têm vantagens, pelo que no final terá de decidir por si próprio qual a solução que melhor se adapta a si e às suas necessidades. HTML5 é sempre adequado se utilizar um smartphone ou tablet com sistemas que não os mencionados - Windows, por exemplo. Para este software, muito poucos casinos online desenvolveram até agora aplicações especiais. Assim, a coisa mais fácil a fazer é chamar o URL do casino e depois beneficiar da oferta de jogos móveis directamente no browser.
Em princípio, isto deve funcionar sempre sem problemas nos dispositivos actuais. O desempenho na área dos jogos móveis está a melhorar visivelmente, de modo que esta opção de jogo dificilmente é inferior à do casino com navegador no PC de casa. É claro que não se pode jogar apenas gratuitamente em movimento. Os sites HTML5 são, no final, algo como a forma pequena do grande casino. Isto significa que iniciar sessão e jogar para obter ganhos reais é tão fácil na estrada como em casa, no ambiente de trabalho. A única diferença é, evidentemente, a resolução mais pequena, e é aqui que o trigo é separado do joio.
