Beautiful Short Film Sheds Light on Life and Work of Vivian Maier

Vivian Maier, Photographer is a beautiful short film about the life and work of Vivian Maier, the unknown amateur photographer whose massive collection of street photographs was discovered at an estate sale after her death.

In the summer of 2010 we were asked by curator Jeffrey Goldstein if we could create a short film using images and 8mm film shot exclusivly by the now famous nanny / street photographer.

Armed with a couple hundred scanned images and hours of digitized 8mm film, we began to lay elements out to gather a sense of what was really being reveled. This along with some investigative research played into a wonderful script and an energetic performance that hopefully sheds a little light the mysterious and life of Ms. Maier.
