Martha My Dear
It's no small secret that I love Martha Colburn and her films. (And I'm not alone; my co-worker John says of her, "God I love art chicks! I want to marry her!") Today I received an e-mail from her containing her "Snapshot Diary", an HP promotional piece to help announce her installation and short film premiere at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival (Martha's 5th appearance at Sundance). Martha describes her HP piece as "a dorky corporate diary," adding "i got a free camera from it!" The films Martha premiered were "Destiny Manifesto" and "Meet Me In Wichita" (click here and here to see reviews). Here's the clip, which can also be found on YouTube (what can't be found there?).
