On a July Sunday thousands of Pittsburghers biked, walked and danced through downtown streets as part of OpenStreetsPGH, which roped off the area between Market Square and the Roberto Clemente Bridge for pedestrian use only.

Part of the 100-city-wide Ciclovia movement, OpenStreetsPGH transformed streets into temporary auto-free zones venues where community members can socialize through walking, bicycling, dancing and playing.

The goal of the free event was to form relationships among community members while allowing residents to see the area in a new way. “Unlike other events and festivals, OpenStreetsPGH is not about entertainment, it’s about being active,” says Bike Pittsburgh Communications Manager Ngani Ndimbie. “Rather than providing performances, we’re providing a space. This event was made by communities. We’ll have achieved our goals when people come out in the streets and meet their neighbors.”

Bike Pittsburgh was one of many partners endorsing this event, alongside The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, cityLAB, Pittsburgh Inline Skate Club, Let’s Move Pittsburgh, Allegheny County and the City of Pittsburgh.

Though this was the first OpenStreets event in Pittsburgh, Ndimbie says, “OpenStreets 2014 is a snapshot of what is to come in 2015.” The group plans to expand, forming advanced partnerships with community groups Neighbors In the Strip and Lawrenceville United.

Shane Set-R“The Chair,” a documentary series executive produced by Point Park University, will air its first episode Sept. 6 on the STARZ channel.

The 10-episode series, filmed in Pittsburgh, follows two up-and-coming directors, Shane Dawson and Anna Martemucci, as they compete to make two separate feature films from the same script. “The Chair” will document the creation, marketing and theatrical release of both adaptations, which will also air on STARZ. Both directors have the same budget and, through multiplatform voting, the audience will determine which director will be awarded $250,000.

More than 100 Point Park students and alumni from a variety of majors supported the TV series and two feature films as interns, employees, and through class projects.  Additionally, production offices were located on Point Park University’s campus in downtown Pittsburgh.

“Point Park University is proud to act as an economic driver and incubator for original works of entertainment that can help boost the local economy, while also giving students and alumni an outlet for developing the kind of experience they need to thrive in the real world,” said University President Paul Hennigan.

“The Chair” was created by producer Chris Moore, who partnered with Ben Affleck and Matt Damon on HBO’s “Project Greenlight.” For “The Chair,” he partnered with Green Tree native Zachary Quinto and his production company, Before The Door Pictures.

“Working in Pittsburgh with the support of Point Park University was an invaluable component in creating this show and these two films,” said Josh Shader, who produced the two films.

“The Chair” chronicles Los Angeles filmmakers Shane Dawson and Anna Martemucci as they make their feature films, also shot in Pittsburgh, from a script by Dan Schoffer. The film is a coming-of-age comedy about a group of former high school classmates who return home from college for Thanksgiving.
