Hi Vimeo,

It's time once again for a Vimeo Offline event here in New York City. Come join us, your friendly Vimeo Staff, as we screen some of the best and brightest video gems found aboard the virtual cruise-ship of creativity that is the Vimeo.

Our theme this month is "Art of Motion." We've curated a collection of videos that showcase that amazing kinetic wonder of biomechanics, the human body. Join us as we share videos with insane extreme sports action, sublime dance performances, otherworldly underwater diving, and unbelievable acrobatics. If it involves feats of strength, grace, agility, or sweetness in general it will be screened. Come meet us if you're in the New York area next week, I promise that we Staff members are even more fun in real life. Hope to see you there!

Details-
When: Tuesday, February 22nd. The event starts at 8:30 p.m. It's free, but you must RSVP! Hey that rhymes!
Where: SPiN New York is located at 48 East 23rd Street btw. Park & Madison (map)

Nothing definite but most likely, sorry I don't have more specifics right now.

Just found this page and am dismayed because am just finishing up details on a short (1:31) that so fits the theme! And will be in the city then, as well. Is it totally too late to be considered? -- Ellen

It's not on Vimeo yet, my partner hasn't done the music yet - maybe by this weekend? Or not. May not make it this time :( but it's a great concept. Is there a Vimeo page we could all regularly check to see what's coming up for things like this?

Not at this time but it's something that's in discussions.

You guys should have like a live, showcase where we can all watch and join in! maybe

Yeah that'd be cool but lighting difficulties present logistical issues. I'll post a link to an album with all the selected videos in a few days.

Ha that'd be cool to have a live camera where we could all watch live and chat while it was going on but yeah there wouldn't be the best quality and this would take a lot of planning

Will there be refreshments served or do we need to bring a bag of cookies and a bottle of water ? And if this is about movement and the seating is limited - does that mean we will be playing musical chairs?

There's a bar with tasty beverages available for a reasonable number of american currency units. No musical chairs but I wouldn't be surprised if there's a dance party afterwards.

Would love to go but the RSVP list is closed =(. My account is filled with young talent who showcase the art of movement on a daily basis in New York City. I think it'll be a great contribution to this event.

Becoming vimeo.com/11153779 might be a good fit for the art of motion given the unique nature of the character's movement and how we tried to choreograph the camera technically around her movement.

Sounds like a great event, wish I could come but NYC is a bit far for me. My free running videos might have fitted in quite well: vimeo.com/14810495

If RSVP is closed does that mean additional party goers = NO ADMITTANCE?
even if they are wearing DANCE SHOES made of GOLD.

Gold you say? Hmm, to be honest not everyone that RSVP's will show up, so you could try and swing by.

I RSVP'd but have had a conflict come up and will not be able to make it. How do I remove myself and guest from the invite list?

Bummer, rsvp is closed... Is there a waiting list? I have a (soon to be) robust video startup production/post production house... looking for freelancers... check out the beginnings at reeldelivery (hope this is not too off topic!)
