The 8mm Films of Vivian Maier

The 8mm Films of Vivian Maier

The 8mm Films of Vivian Maier on Nowness.com

These small clips from the 1970s show a glimpse into the secret life of Chicago nanny Vivian Maier as she documented the urban life around her in her off time. The Finding Vivian Maier documentary finally debuts today at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival.

We’ve covered info on Maier before, but if she’s unknown to you here’s a rundown. Vivian died in 2009 at the age 83. She spent most of her life as a nanny in Chicago and had a secret passion for photography and film. She never shared it with anyone and had few friends. After winning a bid for 30,000 of Maier’s negatives in a Chicago auction house in 2007, Jon Maloof realized the importance Vivian’s work. “Little by little, I realized that the work was great,” he says. “Maier should wedge right in with the best photographers of her time, such as Robert Frank, Diane Arbus, Lisette Model and Helen Levitt.” Maloof has sent the last few years painstakingly archiving Maier’s work, putting on exhibitions around the world and filming the aforementioned documentary film.

Must-See: Wonderland

23 Jul

Must-See: Wonderland

To make this must-see documentary short, the crew at Eskimo set out on a month long journey to interview prominent creatives around the country about creativity, relationships, the pursuit of money and self expression. Many of the creatives were really transparent about their struggles and it was refreshing. If you’ve been around the creative industry for while you’ll agree with most of what they’re talking about and hopefully you’ll be inspired to always be creating for yourself.

Mission 26: The Big Endeavor

18 Oct

Mission 26: The Big Endeavor

Last week the city of Los Angeles welcomed Space Shuttle Endeavor to it’s new home, the California Science Center. The four-day journey through the streets of LA to the Science Center was captured beautifully in time-lapse in so many great angles by Matthew Givot and his small army of collaborators which included Joe Capra, Chris Pritchard, Brian Hawkins, Andrew Walker & Ryan Killackey and more.

This has been an amazing experience that I will never forget. My hope is that this film will show you the amount of dedicated people and teamwork that it took to get the Endeavour to its new home.—Matt Givot
