1. Video Essay Catalog No. 289 by Kevin B. Lee. Full story: fandor.com/keyframe/video-essay-summit-kevin-b-lee-on-what-the-best-video-essays-do Recorded at the Independent Film Festival Boston Film Summit, hosted by the University of Massachusetts Boston. These presentations explored how video essays seek new insights and diverse approaches to investigate the art and culture of cinema. Video essayists Kevin B. Lee, Nelson Carvajal, Serena Bramble and Drew Morton discuss the current state of this emerging art form and speculate where it might go next.

    In this video, Kevin B. Lee, Chief Video Essayist at Fandor Keyframe, talks about how he started making video essays several years ago, how his problems with YouTube changed his outlook on video essays, and what he considers to be the most pressing questions facing video essays today. He presents excerpts from his videos "Shooting Down Pictures: Grey Gardens," Breaking Through the Screen: Video Essays by Mark Rappaport," "The Essay Film: Some Thoughts of Discontent," and "Transformers: The Premake."

    Special thank you to Chico Colvard and Tim Jackson for hosting and moderating the event.
