“We’ve been honored to have such incredibly talented artists work directly with our students and share their experiences in both a classroom setting and in our larger events as well,” says MEWShop owner Josh Apter. “Since 2004 we’ve been archiving and sharing this content - first on our site, then on Vimeo and now through MEWTube, where we’re presenting all of our content in a single collection. It’s the largest online video archive of its kind and a wealth of knowledge for anyone interested in the art and tech of filmmaking.”
