Taken on Christmas eve, 2010, Everyone played along nicely and were pleasantly surprised to find out it was a video. Very sneaky Vimeo! Loved it.
Made for the Vimeo "Fauxtograph" weekend challenge.
My sister has an incredible sense of foresight. I think she called it about 30 seconds in. I'm not entirely sure how I managed to keep everyone there for another 2 minutes.
Wandering...Weekend Project 20 Steps-
To begin, take a short video of the area you start your video adventure. Then, take 20 steps in one direction and stop and take another short video. Repeat this process after taking another 20 steps in the same direction. After you've captured 20 little videos, every 20 steps, you'll edit them together to create a little film.
This project reminded me of Paul's Auster novels- Let the chance guide your way and let's embrace what life has to bring you without fear and in total openness of mind...
“Quinn was used to wondering. His excursions through the city had taught him to understand the connectedness of inner and outer. Using aimless motions as a technique of reversal, on his best days he could bring the outside in and thus usurp the sovereignty of inwardness. By flooding himself with externals, by drowning himself out of himself, he had managed to exert some degree of control over his fits and despair. Wandering, therefore, was some kind of mindlessness”

Update: Runner up of the Weekend Project 20 Steps.
400 Steps, a video every 20 steps.
Inspired by the Vimeo weekend project.
A well known face in Little Five Points tells some of his own stories.
