Currents Vlog Episode 1: 1000 Stories and Fast Fictions

Published by at 3:20 pm under Uncategorized

Currents has entered the world of viral video with an in-depth interview in Vancouver with local writer Kevin Spenst.

As reported earlier on Currents, 1000 Stories is a short film about Kevin’s marathon 50 readings in a day from his book of short stories, Fast Fictions. The film won for best picture in the Paul and Ben 2008 Film Festival. Kevin talks about the process of writing a short story every day for three years, making the film and getting accolades for his storytelling prowess on the SkyTrain.

More videos to follow, hopefully with actual on-camera people — just as soon as I can find a brave soul willing to look into the terrifying depths of my Macbook’s built-in camera. In the meantime, viewers will just have to be content with video stills of yours truly in comic book rendering.
