A Revolutionary Experiment in Streaming Content
As the original US Correspondents for VPRO and Hivos’ pioneering TV/online show Metropolis, we directed, produced, shot and edited over 35 short documentaries covering a wide range of subjects including Vietnam War reenactors, volunteer border patrol squads, and pandrogynous rock stars.
Metropolis was streaming TV before streaming TV: each weekly episode brought together clips from documentaries from around the world, commissioned from local correspondents, and organized around a common theme. In addition, VPRO also made each of the correspondents’ uncut films available online, building an impressive international audience.
Humanize people living on the fringes of US culture through a series of 5-to-10-minute-long documentary shorts aimed at a young, global audience.
