fest

This is a video countdown of the best films of 2013, curated and cut by yours truly. All video and music came from 2013 films, full lists of both are included below. The idea for this project was sparked, inspired and downright taken from David Ehrlich's annual countdown video (see his take on 2013 here: vimeo.com/80862133). This project also served as a chance for me to get my feet wet in Final Cut X.

Curator's Note: These "films" are strictly of the dramatic/scripted variety. I have a separate list for documentaries.

12. The Wolf of Wall Street
11. Her
10. Inside Llewyn Davis
