Vlogzilla: The Art of the Vlog
 
The advent of YouTube and vlogs (video-logs) have given us the ability to record, upload and distribute our deepest secrets, funniest outtakes and most vulnerable moments, connecting us in ways we never thought possible. 

Established filmmakers to soccer moms are delving into this new medium of expression, and internet videos from the absurd to the discerning are now woven into the fabric of society, but why do people vlog? Can vlogging be an art form? 

Join award-winning, Los Angeles filmmaker, Zeke Anders as he explores these questions and more about this global trend in social media. Anders will discuss his highly acclaimed "American Seoul" vlog series about growing up in Detroit, and the diversity of "moving-image selfies" from around the world. (90 min.)
