"Bus Stop" is a single timelapse shot taken from inside the GDCA Gallery in downtown Los Angeles, which I run with my wife. This simple short is actually quite personal. Why? The black bench, which is the center piece of the film, was not there a month ago. Day after day I would watch as people, many with canes and barely able to stand, would wait for their bus to arrive.
So one day I decided to do something about it. After hours of phone calls, I finally tracked down the person responsible for installing bus benches in downtown LA. Several days later I stepped outside, turned the corner onto Spring Street...and there it was!
Must admit, it brings a smile to my face to now see an old woman pushing a cart, or a man with a cane drop down on the bench, and breathe a sigh of relief. Yes, it's the little victories!
