    Heart Stop Beating is the story of Billy Cohn & Bud Frazier, two visionary doctors from the Texas Heart Institute, who in March of 2011 successfully replaced a dying man's heart with a 'continuous flow' device they developed, proving that life was possible without a pulse or a heart beat.

      Hey Loona!!! Your favorite Vimeo fans wanted to give you a get well soon gift, so here it is! I began soliciting video contributions the week before your surgery and hoped to get this to you last week but I underestimated the sheer challenge of culling videos shot and edited on different formats... I think I was overly-ambitious but I got it done! (P.S., the opening sequence is my first-ever footage shot with the new Canon TX1 HD mini camcorder that Bo gave me!) This is overly-compressed, so my apologies for the crappy quality. We sincerely hope you make a full and speedy recovery so we can continue reveling in your video antics :) Thank you to everyone in the U.S. and abroad who contributed footage for the Collaboration of all Collaboration videos! Hey there Shelley, I hear you're slung low and well wishes they're best sung, so Here's to your fast recovery You're the one Vimeons love, see We want you back on our screens So get better and brighten up our daaaaaay! (Lyrics by Bryan Wuest)

        MEDICINE FOR HAITI In January of 2011, one year after the tragic earthquake in Port Au Prince I traveled into Haitian communities and hospitals with 30 doctors, surgeons, and nurses from the United States. Together we set out to provide free medical care for the people of Haiti. My job was to document visually the need of the people. It was an incredible experience... The people of Haiti are beautiful and this trip had a lasting effect on me personally. Music by: Jónsi For more information on medical efforts in Haiti visit blessbackbackworldwide.org

            Marco interviews a young lady named Nikki Portanova who underwent breast enhancement surgery in December 2010. She exclaims that she did it for herself, yet she works in the sex industry -- an industry that exploits and glorifies the vibrant image of young girls -- and where perhaps larger breasts may enrich her career.
