VEEPS: Profiles in Insignificance

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

VEEPS: Profiles in Insignificance is the story of Bill and Wayne—two middle-aged men in search of their American dream, their lives at a disappointing stall. They see a shot at a mid-life redemption and grab it. They follow the Vice Presidents as others follow athletes or rock stars. For years they’ve plied their curious obsession alone, singing the praises of men who won’t even sing their own. Eager and inspired, they hit the road followed by a film crew eager to chronicle this offbeat but quintessentially American narrative: A story of friendship and the shared dreams and passions of a lifetime, it’s also a story that takes a turn neither Bill and Wayne nor their camera toting biographers could possibly foresee.

That agility and mastery comes from  | more than 20 years of developing one’s craft.  | | Mike... Read More →
