Must Watch: Morgan Spurlock: The Greatest TEDTalk Ever Sold Video
Documentarian/filmmaker Morgan Spurlock really seems to be having fun with the whole "meta" aspect of his new film The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, as he's extending it everywhere. Spurlock hosted a 20 minute presentation at the recent TED 2011 event and titled it "The Greatest TED Talk Ever Sold", mostly because he actually sold the name rights online. Genius. Last week we featured Roger Ebert's fantastic TEDTalk, so today I'm featuring Spurlock's TEDTalk, as it's fun, brilliant, insightful and just entertaining to watch. Plus, FirstShowing.net has a cameo, as my review is shown on screen at the end (see it here!). Enjoy!
"With humor and persistence, filmmaker Morgan Spurlock dives into the hidden but influential world of brand marketing, on his quest to make a completely sponsored film about sponsorship. (And yes, onstage naming rights for this talk were sponsored too. By whom and for how much? He'll tell you.)" I can't say it enough - I love TED! And I'm happy to feature some of their videos that finally seep into the film world, as they're almost always fantastic! This one was especially great to see and I can't tell you how excited I am to see The Greatest Movie Ever Sold again. We've got even more with Morgan Spurlock this week, stay tuned!
