How would Supersize Me get made today?

Jess Search moderated a panel with Shooting People patrons Morgan Spurlock and Lucy
Walker at the Vimeo Festival and Awards in NYC last year. You can watch the
whole panel online - lots of good, meaty discussion:

The point Jess makes about how Supersize Me would have a really robust
social media campaign if it were released today but wouldn't have sold for
as much is very true I think. It sums up the situation we're in today where
you can do amazing things with your film in terms of reaching audiences and
creating real change - but paying the rent can still be a struggle.
