Wipster provides a beautiful and intuitive platform for reviewing, approving, and collaborating on video production. Used by thousands of video makers, Wipster streamlines the review workflow by securely sharing the editing process from rough cut to final cuts with your team or clients. We believe people will make better video faster if the client review process is transparent and takes place where it makes the most sense – right on top of the video.

#HomeYetFaraway portrays Sabereh Kashi’s journeys through Iran, her reflections on her current life in the U.S., and the discovery of her family’s tradition of making complex geometric Persian-Islamic architecture as a metaphor for her modern multicultural identity.

Sabereh Kashi started her career by making short films and documentaries in Iran. She has worked as a video editor for several North American television and documentary production companies including MTV Networks, Sun TV, and Promises Films. She co-wrote and edited the ITVS documentary Our Summer in Tehran by Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner Justine Shapiro.

She has been involved in editing and developing several documentaries, including the PBS- and BBC-broadcasted In the Name of Their Mothers.

Sabereh Kashi’s work has appeared in the International Documentary Festival of Amsterdam, Hot Docs, Inside Out Film Festival, United Nations’ Association Film Festival, Fajr International Film Festival, Cinema Verité Documentary Festival, and many international conferences and screenings. She obtained her BFA and MFA from the University of Tehran, a Post-Diploma in Advanced Television and Film from Sheridan Institute for Technology and Advanced Learning in Canada, and recently completed her PhD in Art Research at Tarbiat Modares University in Tehran.

“Sweet Blues, A Film About Mike Bloomfield” Review Written by Steven Jenkins

2013 You know, I like sweet blues… I want to be singing. I want to be sweet,” said music legend Mike Bloomfield of his searing, lyrical guitar playing. His awesome instrumental prowess is on full display in this raucous documentary celebrating the legacy of a hard-living, finger-fretting renegade. Described by fellow icon Al Kooper as “not just another white boy [but] someone who truly knew what the blues were about,” Bloomfield drew on African American tradition while burnishing his licks with a radical compositional approach reflecting the social and cultural upheaval of the 1960s. Bloomfield passed away in 1981, but his sterling musicality as the embodiment of Chicago blues lives on through the work of acolytes such as Carlos Santana, B.B. King and Charlie Musselwhite, all of whom testify to the master’s enduring influence in Bob Sarles’ lovingly crafted film. Sweet, indeed.-
