Director Clarence Eckerson is a master at packaging complicated and wonky concepts into accessible, entertaining and understandable videos, freely available. Launched in 2006, Streetfilms' nearly 400 videos have been viewed over four million times and have inspired action and behavioral change in cities throughout North America and around the world.
