Jim Herbert and His Really Large Paintings

Over the last few years I have done work as an correspondent, cameraman, moderator and host for Indigo TV in New York, currently on an extended hiatus. One of the coolest guys on the planet, Jim Herbert, had a party/art show/rock concert (Smite, Americans) in Bushwick, Brooklyn. He is a rare talent who was responsible for the creation of several of R.E.M.'s seminal videos. Remember the "End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" video where the camera runs all over the place with a boy and his dog in a decrepit house? Jim. I held the camera, Trish rocked the mic, everyone had a great time, and Jim told us about his latest work. The image quality of this piece is poor in the new video format that the Indigo site is using, sorry about it in advance.
