A recent poll was taken on the WCP Forum on Jan. 28, 2012. The forum currently holds over 1000 members. Each member was asked to vote for their favorite event filmmaker in the world. 160 votes were tallied and out of those Joe Simon received 30 votes which put him in a considerable lead from the pack of other known filmmakers. 2nd place totaled 22 votes and the rest were spread out among about 25-30 other filmmakers. The actual question asked was “Who is your favorite filmmaker (pick one) ?”
This poll does not mean anything more than a simple question asked in a popular active forum for event filmmakers but it was the first facebook poll of its kind and it was interesting to see the results. You can continue to vote or view the results if you are a member of this popular forum WCP FORUM. You can join if you are an event filmmaker or photographer.
