Jamie Stuart makes short films about filmmakers.

Straddling the line between press and the very people he's covering, he has, over the past five years, created a number of short films set at film festivals that look at the culture of filmmaking through the eyes of someone who's both insider and an outsider.

"I'm not a journalist. I'm a filmmaker," he says. Making films about film festivals, he says, gives him the exposure he needs to get where he wants to be.
