For a second year, The Venetian presents Carnevale, the timeless inspiration of Italian summer festivals blended with the contemporary elegance of The Venetian and The Palazzo.

When one of my staff members Amanda Harryman took a couple of days off in March, she said it was to make a documentary. I assumed that meant she was filming for a project.

Those of you who watch my online videos have seen her talents in the edit studio, so you won’t be surprised to hear that the film made the finals.

You can vote for your three favorite films on the Doc Challenge site—these are a really amazing group of 12 short documentaries, all made in an extended weekend.
