These 2 IFF Boston 2012 pieces opened every movie of this year's film festival. They were concepted, shot, edited, and composited by Larry at Spot (spoteditorial.com)...Spot's fabulous Courtney did a few shots including the scooter and flower footage.
Outside of the obvious archival shots, everything was shot on an iPhone 4S using Timelapse HD with an Olloclip fisheye/macro lens, and finished in After Effects with lots of help from Boris BCC filters. Brandon Shaefer designed the logo and started us off in the halftone print direction.
