I’m a big documentary guy. I really cannot get enough of them. Most of the time it doesn’t even matter what the subject is, I really adore the format, and enjoy (gasp!) learning something in the process. Why I haven’t been in-tune with the internets to know more about Vice Magazine’s online television network: VBS.tv sooner, I am unsure… BUT – I think I may just be in love.Their guerrilla approach to making some of these documentaries is definitely gloves-off, knee-deep, and in your face. They are doing things, going places, and seeking out answers regarding topics that most major media outlets would never dream of. They offer a fresh, and what I feel to be pretty unbiased view on what they are covering… really aiming to focus on the facts presented to them as they experience these things first-hand.Until recently, Heavy Metal in Baghdad was my only dose of Vice filmmaking… which is an amazing/dangerous look at the only heavy metal band in Iraq, and their struggles to merely exist as a band… let alone play their music. I can’t even count how many segments on VBS are equally as great, if not better. To add an element of legitimacy to it all, CNN just partnered up with VBS because they admire their journalism and unique approach to reporting. Not bad for a Brooklyn-based indie-magazine.Some of the more eye-opening segments that I’ve seen so far include the Vice Guide to Liberia, The Sewers of Bogota, Toxic Garbage Island, Vice Guide to North Korea, and any of the segments from their Middle East Channel. I could easily list ten-fifteen more worthy segments that I have seen so-far, but I will let you explore the site on your own.And to the crew at VBS… if you ever need another cameraman, motion graphics guy, WHATEVERHoller.
