Megashare Riding Giants (2004)
A semiserious, often rollicking, multigenerational insider's look at the origins of surfing, the colorful and subversive birth of surf culture, and the mythology and lure of the big wave. This passionate and fluid film is without question the first authentic history of surfing from its humble Hawaiian beginnings to the big business it became to the still-rebellious universe it inhabits today. is a study in individuality and freedom, the pursuit and techniques of pure kinetic pleasure, and the risk taking and attitudes that characterize its leading figures. For some viewers, this is perhaps more than they ever wanted to know. But Peralta's detailed knowledge of the surfing lifestyle, its icons and locations, its boom and exploitation by the media, and the fascination it has held for young men for more than five decades is unparalleled and fuels this expedition for the expert and initiate alike. Closely chronicling the sometimes-life-and-death drama that big-wave riding entails, is an often-mesmerizing visual thrill ride. But the most appealing aspect of this often revelatory documentary is the realization that the man versus nature dialectic never ends; the search for the ultimate wave and the spiritual pinnacle can only be pursued but never reached.
Director: Stacy Peralta
Cast: Brian L Keaulana, Gerry Lopez, Kelly Slater, Laird John Hamilton

Megashare Beautiful Losers (2008)
The greatest cultural accomplishments in history have never been the result of the brainstorms of marketing men, corporate focus groups, or any homogenized methods; they have always happened organically. More often than not, these manifestations have been the result of a few like-minded people coming together to create something new and original for no other purposethan a common love of doing it. In the 1990s, a loose-knit group of American artists and creators, many just out of their teens, began their careers in just such a way. Influenced by the popular underground youth subcultures of the day, such as skateboarding, graffiti, street fashion and independent music, artists like Shepard Fairey, Mark Gonzales, Spike Jonze, Margaret Kilgallen, Mike Mills, Barry McGee, Phil Frost, Chris Johanson, Harmony Korine, and Ed Templeton began to create art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Many had no formal training and almost no conception of the inner workings of the art world. They learned their crafts through practice, trial and error, and good old-fashioned innovation. Not since the Beat Generation have we seen a group of creative individuals with such a unified aesthetic sense and varied cultural facets. The world of art has been greatly affected by their accomplishments as have the worlds of fashion, music, literature, film, and, ironically, athletics. Over the years, the group has matured, and many have become more establishment-oriented; but no matter, their independent spirit has remained steadfast. The story of the will be a retrospective celebration of this spirit.

Cast: Harmony Korine, Mike Mills
Megashare Being Lincoln Men with Hats (2008)
They are not "impersonators". They are Abraham Lincoln presenters. When they don the iconic ensemble - the hat, the whiskers, the full-length coat, sometimes even a strategically glued pencil eraser for the facial mole - most are answering a calling. "If you are going to put this man's coat on and if you are going to tell this man's story, it comes with a certain responsibility", says Dennis Boggs, a fifteen year veteran Lincoln Presenter, who helps John Mansfield, a rookie Lincoln, on his journey to become a Lincoln. Dennis and John are members of the Association of Lincoln Presenters (ALP), a national organization of living historians in 38 states. Most members of the ALP are hardcore presenters, some are even scholars. But not all Lincolns take their role so seriously. On weekend nights in Downtown Nashville, Tennessee, you can find Mike Cox turning heads, even in the bustling, tumultuous streets that make up music city's tourist district. Just as with all of the Lincoln presenters, people flock to this facsimile of Lincoln, who brings out strong emotions in those who see him. But not all of the responses are good. Modern day Lincolns have to deal with, as one presenter put it, "those who would still fight the civil war". Being Lincoln-Men With Hats is the story of what it means to "be a Lincoln" - what it means to the individuals that portray him, and what Lincoln's image means to the rest of us.

Megashare Cities of Light The Rise and Fall of Islamic Spain (2007)
Over a thousand years ago, the sun-washed lands of Southern Spain were home to Muslims, Christians, and Jews living together and flourishing. Their culture and beliefs intertwined and the knowledge of the ancients was gathered and reborn. Here were the very seeds of the Renaissance. But this world too quickly vanished. Greed, fear, and intolerance swept it away. Puritanical judgments and absolutism snuffed out the light of learning. Within a few centuries, the fragile union of these people dissipated like smoke. Brought to life by powerful, feature-film style re-creations, Cities of Light: The Rise and Fall of Islamic Spain explores the causes that destroyed the one civilization of pluralism and interfaith cooperation that for a few centuries lit the Dark Ages in Medieval Europe.

Megashare Friends Forever (2001)
(the band) never plays inside any rock clubs. Instead, they play inside their van outside the club to stunned bystanders. Nate (drums), Josh (guitar), Jen (their lighting girl) and three dogs don?t think twice about traveling hundreds of miles across the country to play one 15-minute show in a loading zone. (the documentary) captures their smoke-spewing, generator-powered rock world, and the tour that has them crisscrossing the U.S. in search of the perfect parking spot. No audience is too small, or too baffled, to skimp on the performance when you?re on "a mission to save rock."
Director: Ben Wolfinsohn
Cast: Harvey Fisher, Josh Taylor, Lloyd Kaufman
