"New York Writes Itself" presents "New York Types" which is the theme for the letterpress art show at the art directors club in NYC (till 1/5/12)
"The city’s leading letterpress artists are collaborating to create this one of a kind collection of real sentences and conversations from the New York streets, re-created letter by letter.".
In this video I combined footage that I shot of the guests at the opening reception party , with cinema-verite style video snippets from my archives of NY streets and subway scenes.
I consider it as a "raw cut" (long version, since I wanted to include most of the guests).
I will make a shorter cut of it in 2012.
Look out for the part 2 of this installment. (coming after the show will fold.)
More "surprise guests" from the streets of NYC will be featured !:)
In this video I included the drumming sound of "ShowTime" from his live performances in the subway, as well as "The Seed" by The Roots.
