If you’ve visited New York, you’ve wondered why one of the country’s oldest cities always looks like it is still being built. Since living here for a little more than a year, I have heard of a lot of mixed feelings toward the scaffolding that is shifting from block to block, in a never-ending cycle. The team behind the ODD NY vimeo channel have a great new animation paying homage to the metal webs of construction as the third installment in their series on New York. The narrator perfectly encapsulates the New York I know with the final lines,”This city is going to be great one day. Whenever it’s finished.”
As per the usual with the GoPro YouTube Channel, some incredible new footage has emerged of Kevin Richardson hugging a pair of lions. Check out Richardson’s site for more adorable hugs from his furry friends.
I’m in love with this video. Yes, there are already so many well-shot sports documentary style videos out there, but this one leaves many of the cliches behind and focuses on the power of the visual. You can tell its by a solid group of shooters and editors and producers that just love making great video that tells great stories. Happy Hump Day, let this be your inspiration to finish the week strong.
Hey all! Since I’m just beginning here at HSA, I thought I would share a video completely about endings. Plot Point Productions is a great group that do some fun and thoughtful supercuts, and this one incorporates the last shots of some famous movies. They did great work grouping them together by style and technique. For most filmmakers the last shot is their closing statement, an opportunity to summarize what the last 90 minutes of footage had been trying to illustrate.
My biggest takeaway? It’s all about the eyes.
