Short Film: ‘Photo Man’ Sells Your Memories

The Photo Man Short Film

Why Watch? There is real found footage out there, and Mark Kologi collects it. He also sells it, and he’s sold a lot — making a living from images of strangers that might otherwise end up in the garbage. It’s a way of making the intimate public before making it intimate again.

Fortunately, Kologi has a few things to say about his unique job, and filmmakers Ben Kitnick and Saxon Richardson gave him the opportunity to wax philosophical about a worldview that peers above a two-dimensional boundary to occasionally see a vibrant world beyond.

Simple and pristine in its understatement, this short documentary is worth your time.

What Will It Cost? About 6 minutes.
