Looking back over 2010, we’re tremendously excited about our first full year of video production. What began as a modest attempt to open up the online video interview and bust it out of a strict junket setting has evolved into two full-fledged series including interviews with cinematic greats like Olivier Assayas, Claire Denis, Paul Verhoeven, Richard Linklater, Pedro González-Rubio, the director of Alamar, Reverse Shot’s Best Film of 2010 and many, many more. You can see the complete collection here.
We’re very grateful to Karol Martesko-Fenster and the entire crew at Babelgum for giving us a chance to produce these clips and doing a great job in promoting them to PCs and mobile devices worldwide. We’ll be back in 2011, but at a new home, and with some new tricks up our sleeve. Stay tuned.
For now, our final offerings for 2010. Happy New Year, and thanks for watching.
