Why We Heart The Vimeo Festival + Awards

Posted Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

I attended the Vimeo Festival + Awards in 2010 and was blown away by how fun and creative the whole experience was. We did a Digital Bootcamp workshop and the packed audience was fantastic, asking really great questions. The film curation was top-notch and they had a bunch of really fantastic speakers including Reggie Watts, Morgan Spurlock and King of DSLR Philip Bloom. During the festival Seeper did a really jaw-dropping projection mapping onto the IAC building where most of

The power of curation, or thank goodness for Brain Pickings

Posted Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

I love Maria Popova’s site, Brain Pickings. It’s an endless source of interesting ideas. She has also helpfully provided an online bookshelf so you can explore all the amazing books she consumes so voraciously.

Of course this does depend on how good/relevant your social media feeds are in the first place which is yet another thing to think about

Well this certainly clears things up! I think I can just give people this sheet of paper from now on and stop doing my Digital Bootcamp workshops altogether. Not sure where this originally came from so I can’t credit it but congratulations to whomever did it!

Kevin Curtis is a Dead Man – poking fun at British films

Posted Saturday, January 14th, 2012

You have to admit that this fake trailer is right on the money about certain British film tropes. “Is this film going to batter audiences over the head with a message of social injustice?” Meanwhile I’m waiting with bated breath for the results of Lord Smith’s review of UK government film policy on Monday. I do hope it is more nuanced than Cameron’s simplistic demand that the film industry should support “commercially successful pictures.” As Ben Blaine pointed out, this

Does anyone know what this is from? It reminds me of one of Douglas Rushkoff’s maxims: You may always choose “none of the above.”
