Hey folks, I’m excited to announce that my New York Close Up co-producing partner Wesley Miller and myself will be part of a screening and discussion at the Apple Store Soho, New York City. It’s this Tuesday, December 11 at 7PM, free and totally open to the public. The event’s entitled “Creating the Portrait of an Artist: New York Close Up and Etsy,” and along with Etsy’s Senior Video Producer (and NYCU project friend) Tara Young, we’ll be talking about the pleasures and perils of producing short form arts documentaries for the web. We’ll be screening films from the New York Close Up and Etsy catalog, and the discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A.
This is really the first public discussion of the New York Close Up series from the producers’ behind the scenes perspective. So if you’re in the New York City area and want to learn more about the project’s whats, whys, and hows straight from the source, this is the time to do it.
And if you don’t already know about them, Etsy produces some great documentary shorts highlighting their (extremely large) roster of artist vendors. Best way to check them out is to visit their blog.
Hope to see you there.
