About the Movie
Margaret, in the words of her best friend Cass, has been "doing better lately." Still, she struggles to consistently manage the lingering effects of a tragic past. In an effort to help Margaret keep in touch with her feelings, Margaret's therapist recommends she write in a daily journal. "Handwriting is archaic," according to Margaret. But Margaret knows she has to do something. In a fit of desperation, she starts recording private video blogs on her laptop. Then, one night, after going out with Cass, Margaret leaves her laptop behind at a bar in her Brooklyn neighborhood. Margaret is soon contacted by Vee, a nineteen year old working her way through college while living at home in the same Brooklyn neighborhood. Vee has found Margaret's laptop. She has watched all of Margaret’s videos. So begins a story of friendship based upon the revelation of some deeply personal feelings.
A brilliant showcase of reality
I throughly enjoyed the Videoblogs because it does a great job of showcasing things all of us have gone through and the struggles some of us have in day to day life.
A really fascinating film. It really sets an example for what can be done with indie film. A personal story that really spoke to me.
What Can Be Done with Indie Film
The Videoblogs is such a great example of what you can do with an independent film. The characters are very well-defined. Each has a unique struggle and needs. The way they come together in mutual support feels so natural. The film is also a great example of how to make a film to start a conversation. I think many people can relate to at least some of the struggles expressed and that can get us talking and maybe feeling a bit less alone.
