About

Video Haiku began in 2006 – when video on the internet was still a very new thing.

I couldn’t believe that the domain “videohaiku.com” was available – I still feel extremely fortunate that I nabbed it.

The early videos, still accessible on the site, were under 2 minutes long and the compressed file sizes were in the neighborhood of 3 mb, which still took ages to upload.

Initially I was strict about the content: two minutes or less, five shots or fewer, contemporaneous sound. Most of the videos were shot with a 256 mb memory card that would only hold about three minutes of SD video, which was a nice limitation.

I’ve since relaxed about what I post, including a range of current projects and writing about cinema, storytelling, media, and culture.

If you want more details, here’s my full CV.

    hi.
    I know you were a friend of Chase Korte. This week I put the film Peace Walker up on line in segments. You can see it here https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLjPDFOCyeo9Z8sY0A1evojLVZmveT_Zyq

      Thank you for posting, Tara. I was Chase’s friend from MN and his roommate in West Hollywood while he was shooting Peacewalker. I have never seen it, but will watch it now…

    I am interested in getting a bid to video an installation that I will install during July and August this year. When it is finished I’d like a videographer to see it before giving me a bid as it is clear glass rib-like bones hanging from ceiling on monofilament.
    Light and shadow cast on the wall behind the installation are part of the piece.
    Thank you for your consideration. Krista Walsh recommended that I contact you.

    Hi Kevin,

    Enjoyed reading your “Media Manifesto” from this past week. Would you be interested in talking more about it on a program MTN is putting together in July? Feel free to drop me a line if you’re interest and I can send you more details.

    Cheers,
    Mike Maupin
    Education and Outreach Coordinator at MTN
