Vincent Moon Retrospective and Conversation, July 24

Internationally acclaimed director Vincent Moon will be making an exclusive appearance in Miami on July 24 to host a retrospective of his work, and will lead the enlightening conversation to follow.The New York Times stated in 2011 that French indie filmmaker Vincent Moon reinvented the music video. Filming in odd locations, with lo-fi gear, using a cinéma vérité one take style, Vincent stripped the performance to its raw, enigmatic core – just the performer, their music and the environment.  He has worked with bands like Arcade Fire, the National, R.E.M., Beirut, Mogwai among others.  Vincent has made several tour documentaries and designed an online video companion to the R.E.M.’s 2008 album “Accelerate.”  Just when he became well known, he also became restless.  He abandoned his life in Paris and has been on the road ever since. The music of South America and Haiti are among his latest fascinations.  Vincent remains on the flipside of  big Industry, he is an independent artist creating in the age of new technology, making all of his work free and open to the public under the creative commons license.

This event will bring insight and enlightenment to filmmakers of every niche and every genre. No matter if you prefer to shoot for the narrative, fancy yourself a documentarian, a screenwriter, a DP, or an editor, we are all striving to capture a moment that truly speaks to people, and that is what Vincent Moon does best.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity with an incredible artist.
