more about “NY“, posted with vodpod

(don’t read if you don’t want to be bored to death ;) ) : Years ago, I stumbled upon a short feature from french photographer/director Raymond Depardon named “New York, NY”. Just 3 B&W shots of NYC with a narrator (Mr Depardon himself) and sound.The first shot was a really long travelling next to a bridge and was so amazing that I wondered how he managed to shoot it. Helicopter? RC Plane? I couldn’t tell but the result was incredible on a huge theater screen.A few years ago, an american friend of mine told me “That’s the Queensboro Bridge stupid! There’s an aerial tramway next to it…”So for some years now, I’ve been dreaming of doing the same shot.Back in january of this year, I had a connecting flight in Newark with a 7 hours time window so I ran to Manhattan just to shoot that video (ok, and enjoy a few hours in this wonderful city).I didn’t have time to rehearse anything, it was a one shot thing and I just stuck my Canon HFS10 with a Raynox 6600 to the window of the tram using a suction cup arm and pressed record.
