CLIPPINGS_220Please welcome CLIPPINGS, a new weekly video feature here at redbankgreen.

Since the deep of winter, artist Gerda Liebmann has been roaming the Green, iPhone in hand, shooting Vine videos. Her aim has been to capture, in seven seconds of video, a sense of place and vitality, which pretty much describes what redbankgreen hopes to be about.

We’ve got a little starter archive of Gerda’s work here, and we hope you’ll leave comments below those that tickle, aggravate or inspire you.

CLIPPINGS: A RITE OF SPRING IN RED BANK

CLIPPINGS_220Vine video shot outside Prown’s Home Improvements on Monmouth Street in Red Bank on March 23, 2014. Prown’s owner and children’s advocate David Prown tells Clippings he gives away donated sports equipment to Red Bank kids every Sunday in spring. In addition, he says, “people bring me lots of things, from clothes to toys to housewares to find good homes for.” Stuff he doesn’t give away directly gets placed on the curb, and “it ALWAYS goes,” he says. Interested in donating or getting something? Call Prown at 908-902-2203. (Video by Gerda Liebmann. Click to enlarge)
