ODE TO NYC
If you have either lived or just visited New York something is bound to stain your memory. It could be the grandma in gold spandex confidently jamming on roller skates, or the homeless man telling his story of loss in repeated rants. A personal favorite has to be hot subway cars stuck in the tunnels while "musicians" play in hopes of getting heard. Andrew Clancy is a young filmmaker out of Ireland, capturing a day to day in NYC in its simple complexities. He relates, "Living in New York I'd grab my Canon 7D, or S95, and shoot footage of what was going on around me. It seemed like a never ending project and you could stay filming life in New York for a long time. But eventually I put my camera down and started to edit. Here's the end result, it's a bit rough and ready but that's life in the Big Apple I guess."
