There are a large number of invaluable online initiatives that publish video essays, from commercial outlets via YouTube channels to curated Vimeo groups. Yet sometimes it can be hard for certain video essays to gain traction or get noticed, because they fall between the cracks of the aforementioned channels. Filmscalpel Presents is a curated selection of video essays that we think deserve your attention. Some of these works are student efforts, others are by established essayists, still others are video essays Filmscalpel was in some way involved in. Most of these videos premiered on this site.
