How does modern technology affect the way we connect, outside of the obvious? This question is endemic to the ethos of companies like Samsung and Vimeo. In response, Samsung teamed up with Vimeo to showcase the human relationship with technology and innovation. The result was “Connected,” a series of ten fresh perspectives by top Vimeo filmmakers aimed to develop a deeply meaningful dialogue.

Paul Trillo is a New York-based director who challenges both curiosity and illusion. “[Paul] is a short filmmaker whose films combine experimentation with wonderful composition and technicality, concrete story with abstract implementation.” - Proxart Magazine. From creating the first fully mobile bullet time camera rig with 50 Nokias to choreographing an aerial smoke shows using drones, Paul’s constant pursuit to develop and play with new techniques has led to a strikingly fresh body of work. His varied interest in technology, comedy, and design permeates throughout. Many of these experiments have been selected as Vimeo Staff Picks and have been featured in a variety of outlets from Creator's Project to Scientific American. Trillo has been listed as one of 2015’s D&AD’s Next Directors and has recently won “The One Show’s One To Watch” and “30 Under 30 Film Festival’s Director to Watch” awards.Hide the rest
