As a video producer, these videos Vimeo collected resonate strongly with me. The best part of this collection videos is that they're all created by different people. People who want to tell stories of Hurricane Sandy. People who want to create art that helps people. I respect and applaud these filmmakers. My heart goes out to those affected by Hurricane Sandy. Read more about Hurricane Sandy a week later and what you can do. -Mitch Wenkus, Greenpeace video producer. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The footage and films that came from the storm are terrifying, shocking and amazing, a testament to the power of video and citizen journalism. Were proud that Vimeo could play a small part in illuminating this event for the rest of the world, and even more impressed with the creators that made it happen. Weve assembled the firsthand accounts into this album. These are really worth a watch.
