This has been making the rounds (I just watched it on APE’s post) but I wanted to put my recommendation on it and pass it along. Wunderkind David Burnett brings us a charming and interesting behind-the-scenes look at what it is actually like covering the Olympics in Beijing.
The Olympics You Didn’t See from David Burnett on Vimeo.
If you don’t know his work or his blog, go look at those right now too. I’ve always enjoyed his pictures (I mean, how can you not love a guy who lugs a 4×5, and all sorts of other crazy cameras, around everywhere alongside his digicams?) but this video is the icing on top… this is a fun, creative bit of filmmaking.
