Video from the Opening Night of Botero

Using a FlipVideo camera given to the Fine Arts Center by the Bee Vradenburg Foundation, I recorded the happenings of the Opening Celebration for The Baroque World of Fernando Botero. Eschewing the interviewer-centric approach of other local arts video enterprises, I instead let the video doing the talking, utilizing the 'shaky cam' technique to capture the gritty underbelly of the affair, a technique made famous by late 1990s television crime dramas. In the middle of it all, I met a man who attended the FAC Grand Opening in 1936. Watch and enjoy.
