Defiantly lo-fi filmmaker Vincent Moon is globally renowned for his more than 200 influential Take Away Shows, glimpsing the lives and musical psyche of artists like Sufjan Stevens, The National and Grizzly Bear.

After years on the road, armed with his amazing audio visual recordings, he stops over for a revelatory chat about amateur creation, creative networking and walking the earth from artist to artist.

Now under nomadic label Small Planets, Moon is adventuring worldwide to film the lives and often remote cultures of traditional and edgy music-makers.

In a one-off for Sydney Festival audiences, Moon unpacks an intimately global experience.Born in Paris, Vincent Moon (real name Mathieu Saura) began as a photographer, using simple slideshows techniques and music to tell stories. On moving across to video, he used the internet to develop various music-related projects, directing lo-fi videos for the likes of Clogs, Sylvain Chauveau, Barzin and The National. In 2006, he created the Take Away Shows project, La Blogotheque's video podcast.

This series of outdoor/wild documentaries consists of improvised video sessions with musicians, set in unexpected locations and broadcast freely on the web. Moon's style is now immediately recognisable for its intimate, fragile, dancing and shadowing long shots, as well as its challenge to any notion of what a music video should be.

For Sydney Festival, Amelia Tovey will be introducing Moon as well as moderating the Q&A session at the end. Now based in New York Tovey's own Shoot the Player series has more than a passing nod at Moon's own work.
