An homage to Man With A Movie Camera
Roger Ebert is probably the greatest living film critic in the country today, if not in the world.
This morning he posted a video sent to him by Jamie Stewart entitled 'Man in a Blizzard".
Stewart shot the video on a Canon 7D and cut it on FCP.
Here is Ebert's critique:
This film deserves to win the Academy Award for best live-action short subject.
(1) Because of its wonderful quality. (2) Because of its role as homage. It is directly inspired by Dziga Vertov's 1929 silent classic "Man With a Movie Camera." (3) Because it represents an almost unbelievable technical proficiency. It was filmed during the New York blizzard of Dec. 26, and Jamie Stuart e-mailed it to me with this time stamp: December 27, 2010 4:18:18 PM CST.
I have nothing but respect for Roger Ebert, but we should start sending him our videos on a regular basis.
The man has years of Hollywood experience with the best filmmaker's in the world behind him.
And now, he's an advocate for the product of 'The Revolution'
So bravo Jamie Stewart!
