I’m a member at Vimeo.com and get an update every day as to the newest vids. This place is much different from YouTube in that the community is made up mostly of amateur, semi-pro and pro film makers. And these people are putting out some very amazing work.
To recognize those who stand out in this pool of film makers, this weekend organizers are holding the inaugural Vimeo Festival and Awards.
I learned of the documentary below through my vimeo daily update in December of ’09 (at least that’s when I first created this post and subsequently left it in the draft bin)
For some reason I couldn’t bring myself to post it. I don’t know why. It reminds me a lot of how I felt about my little buddy who I had to let go of in May of 2002 though. But I found out on NPR’s website today that “Last Minutes with Oden” is one of the top five finalists in the documentary category.
Be prepared to whip out the tissue while watching it.
