Steam is a personal art project and the first of eight films that I have been creating featuring "Elements" of New York City. It was inspired by Robert Flaherty's "24 Dollar Island". The skyline is rarely the same at dawn and each season brings a totally new variation a sky, shadow direction and clouds.
Technical: Filmed with a Sony EX3 and EX1 using 1080 60i and HDV settings. Formatt grads were used to darken the skies and Magic Bullet Looks enhanced the color and texture.
The music "Awry" is from Moby's indie artist site. I applied and received permission to use the track.
