I went to the Vimeo awards last night, thanks to a very kind invitation, and it was lovely.
[If you don't know them - have a look, they are both awesome and very funny]
and lots of short films you might otherwise never hear about were recognized.
The Grand Prix Winner was Symmetry [above] by Everyone, which is very worth the 2.54 it takes to watch it.
I also really like
the winner in the remix category:
Rear Window Timelapse - a reconsitution of all the different things Jimmy Stewart sees as a single, dynamic panorama.
and the winners of the best newcomer special award thing: DANIELS - who have a style of film making that feels heavily web influenced in its hyperkinetic aesthetic.
If you are in NYC you can see the winners and selected others at the various VIMEO Festival screenings this weekend.
If you are not you can watch them on...Vimeo.
