Vimeo Award Festival

Morgan Spurlock




This past weekend I won tickets to the Vimeo Festival for Friday and Saturday. I wasn't able to make it on Friday because of work and class, but I went all day on Saturday with a friend from Pratt and it was an amazing experience. My day started off with a lecture from Morgan Spurlock, director of Supersize me who I got to meet after te show and discuss the future of filmmaking. I attended several more guest lectures and later took a class with Philip Bloom a world class director who uses DSLR for video. The night ended with a party at the IAC building full of directors, festival attendees and a fully stocked open bar. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget and I made plenty of great contacts here in the city.
