If you don’t know who Vvinni Gagnepain is, you have been leading an empty existence. Vvinni is now prepping his senior thesis film at SFUAD (those in the know pronounce it ‘seafood’) in Santa Fe.
The film is called Delicious Pound Cake, and it is about the end of the world. For reasons beyond my understanding, Vvinni has asked me to DP the film. He and I have an arrangement, you see: I only DP for Vvinni, because DPing for him is kind of like playing Calvinball. You make up the rules as you go.
Vvinni is now trying to raise money for his film, and you can help. Go here to donate. Even if it’s just a few bucks, every dollar helps. And this is not one of those pyramid-scheme fundraising sites; even if he doesn’t hit his target, he can still use the donated funds.
Here’s a video I made for the fundraiser. It’s me making a johnny cake while explaining why Delicious Pound Cake should be shot on Ektachrome 16mm:
