Mac Premo from Bas Berkhout on Vimeo.
My studiomate and friend Bas Berkhout just released this beauty of a mini documentary on Mac Premo. Mac is one of the most talented creative forces I know here in Brooklyn. You might know Mac for his art, his video on Oliver Jeffers or for the most recent U2 video, Ordinary Love. He’s a force of nature. I hugely admire his artistic courage and talent.
Thank you Bas for giving us this honest, raw glimpse into Mac’s life.
