Back in the early stages of The Pixel Trade I realised I would require a few things to make everything run as smooth as a custard pie wrapped in silk. One aspects of this project is filming videos for some of the trades. After writing an email to Vimeo I got a cheetah-like response that they wanted to trade when I got to New York City but in the meantime would provide a free pro account as part of our exchange.
The Pixel Trade started with a card swipe at security, an elevator and a walk past the snack bar. I was photographing two things, some of the serious faces making up the community team and behind the scenes of Vimeo’s Holiday Party movie. The video involved a woman turning into a Christmas tree, a full body skeleton and eggnog. You can see their video at the bottom of this trade.
