Yeah Short of the Week and Vimeo are in bed together; thats why you’ll often see a video premiere as a Staff Pick and a SOW on the same day, it’s because the filmmaker knows someone that works at one of those places.
It’s just like film festivals, you’ve simply got to know someone on the inside if you want to get any attention! Otherwise, there is a 0% chance of anyone actually watching your stuff.
How to get Vimeo staff pick:
Step 1: Know someone that works at Vimeo
What a horribly misinformed director and misguided film. She did a whole film about adderall and still doesn’t know not to use the ultra outdated term “ADD?” Talk about not doing your homework.
ADHD is a neurological disorder and is widely misunderstood and mocked, and films like this perpetuate stereotypes.
Giving attention to people like naive college students who abuse prescription drugs (a felony offense, by the way) is reckless, and it isn’t a fair way to frame medication that serves to help those with mental health issues.
Thumbs way, way down for making a junk food “documentary” that hypes up false narratives and ignores real issues.
Reminds me of this scene from The Simpsons: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ZgtEdFAg3s
Really cool to see the first female cinematography nomination ever for Mudbound!
But Blade Runner is the most visually stunning movie in the last decade so I hope Deakins finally gets his win.
Deli mustard is also great as a lens filter. I heard they used it on the new Star Wars!
