  • Artists Wanted | In Focus: Pete Eckert on Vimeo Christian Schneider did a very nice short film about me. This was for the Artist Wanted competition I won in New York. It jumped from site to site and was very popular. So many I don’t know how to list it here. Instead I’m giving credit where it is due to the folks at Artist wanted and Christian. He did a wonderful little film. He is a great guy and fun to work with. Thanks Christian. August 16, 2010 www.artistswanted.org Pete Eckert: Winner of Exposure 2008
