A film by Ira Weinschel who writes:This video is assembled from hundreds of still photos I took during the building of "The Fire of Fires", the Temple at Burning Man 2009. It includes shots from fundraisers in Austin and Houston, our build in Austin, TX during one of the hottest summers on record and the month we spent putting it all together on-playa.Special thanks to The Mermen for allowing the use
Check out this video submission from Psilly Psimon, a long time contributor to BURNcast who wrote in to say "I heard this song for the first time the other day, and had to come home and immediately put some Burning Man video footage I took from '09 of the Temple to it. This is a video I put together to honor the Temple at Burning Man. I hope you enjoy it~!"
Just when I think it's time to wrap up this season of BURNcast, in come several more video submissions (from readers like you!) to keep this blog going. This video comes from longtime BURNcast fan Psilly Psymon.Psymon says, "Here is a little photo montage I did of Burning Man '09. I hope you enjoy it~!"
I guess I'm into moody/ambient/downtempo Burning Man music videos today. Here's a couple of extra bonus videos to get you through Tu-tu-Tuesday. Can you imagine what Hump Day will be like? :)These videos from 1MoreLife were shot in 2009. But you almost can't tell in the first one entitled "Angel Dust". If I could give out an award for videos this one would score well in "Best Use of Playa".
While we're well into our 2010 season for Burning Man, we just received this very cool submission from Burning Man 2009. DJ Sharam presents "Get Wild in Black Rock City" a three part YouTube video series about Sharam's adventure at Burning Man festival in 2009. Follow Sharam exploring the playa, trying to find out what Burning Man is all about. And see him play at the infamous Opulent Temple. Also
This, the second installment in the "Playing With FIRE" series, is a ten minute cut of the complete 2009 "man burn" from Martin Darbyshir of Hyperbreed Media.This about wraps up our pre-Burning Man postings. I leave for Black Rock City on Tuesday night. Look for the BURNcast logo in the Fandango Camp at 3:30 and Esplanade and let's have a toast to community! DRINK! C U on the playa!
So in our last post we showed you the future of Burning Man 2010 and in this post we'll show you the past at Burning Man 2009. This video documents a helicopter towing an advertising banner across the sky on Saturday afternoon. According to the Burning Man website the helicopter "did not land or take off from our strip, and the pilot did not reply to radio calls. Outraged Burners contacted the business
This video features a series of clips strung together from the 2009 Balsa Man regional burn in Black Rock City (Balsa Man officially takes place in San Francisco). The event comprises a diminutive version of Burning Man for a reduced community (drink!) complete with a 3' tall effigy fabricated entirely from balsa wood. It's worth noting that media outlets such as BURNcast are welcome. The management
I met Stephanie for the first (and only time) inside the Memortrees installation at Burning Man 2009 as I was attempting to escape the heat of the afternoon playa. In this video we have a chat about Burning Man. It's worth noting that Stephanie was topless during this recording and as part of our agreement to shoot the video was to respect her modesty. Just as we began wrapping things
Last week on BURNcast I caught a ride in Jeff's blue-fish taxi to the Zome Mani Padme Zome, an art installation at Burning Man 2009 by Rob Bell, Patricia Algara and Zachary Rutz. In this video we talk to to Rob about how he designed this piece.Evolving to BootiesattvaThe spiral is the most ancient symbol found on every civilized continent. The spiral of nature, art, mathematics - a constant form at
Come with me for a ride on Jeff's sweet Blue Fish taxi!

This piece was produced for a new PBS series "Painting and Travel with Roger & Sarah Bansemer" that has yet to be aired. The production value is highly professional. I think it's probably one of the nicest things I've seen come down the pipe in a wee whiley. In this episode Roger works on a landscape painting of the Burning Man and Sarah interviews the FlamingLotus Girls who created a large stainless
"Chuck De Luck's first Burning Man" experience with the Titicockers from Camp Titicaca at 4:30 + E. Out of the Idaho cold down to the desert, play in the Playa, back to the cold. Just a short video to share , had all the fun allowed by law, and then some. Hope to please.Peace Y'all,Chuck De Luck
BURNcast.TV receives a lot of video submissions from participants like you but this one really takes the cake. It's so ebullient, it reminds me of what first drew me to Burning Man in the first place. This video was was submitted by Rob (no-playa name) who said:"This is a video that is SO GOOD. I'm Rob from Camp Pendant--best little camp that you most likely never heard of. This video is from Nick
Burning Man 2009 from Glenn Robert Lym on Vimeo.This week on BURNcast.TV we'll be covering the topic of "Cellphones @ Burning Man" which was percolating as a rumor for many months leading up to the event at last year's burn. In fact, come early August '09, the BM blog posted that coverage was available in Gerlach. John Curley wrote: "Isn’t that weird? You can check your email; you can get calls,

Hidden inside this mobile dog's head at Burning Man 2009 was a household clothes dryer. On cold evenings, in the deep desert, participants had their coats warmed and fluffed while they enjoyed an interactive hypnotic experience. Check out the project's website at MutantVehicle.com/fluffer.htmFluffer was produced in part by Mr. Jellyfish, who in addition to contributing some splendid episodes to our
I'm creating a virtual temple for 2009 dedicated to those lost since last year's burn. It will be made into video and is intended for members of the community including their friends and family (and their pets, too).What I need to make this video is photos from your loved one. More information about that, so just keep reading....Whomever has lost somebody this year and is taking their memory to memorialize
