We first encountered First + Main Media because of their great video that acts as a 3 minute primer to the question: What is New Urbanism?
First + Main Media has gone on to produce the series American Makeover and lends a critical but encouraging voice to the conversation of how and why we plan our towns the way we do.
We were happy host to feature three episode of American Makeover at the Congress for New Urbanism 21 this year in Salt Lake City, UT. Each episode focuses on one city and the problems that city faces in redesigning their urban plan. We screened three episodes–one per night– at CNU21. Fresno, CA., Seaside, FL., and Buffalo, NY. The Seaside episode, “Seaside – The City of Ideas” was so popular that we screened it again the last night, as a double feature with the Buffalo episode. City of Ideas is one of our Videos We Like You can watch it now and see the next episode at the New Urbanism Film Festival in November.
