This is an Independent short film made for pleasure.
Here is my first video in black and white.
These images were shot during a travel in New York City.
I wanted to create a video on this city which made me feel of incredible feelings.
Upon my arrival I was impressed by the visual and sound variety of this city. Really, sound is everywhere.
So I wanted to create this video as an experiment between sound and image where they progress together. I had to try to make that none of them "eats" the other one.
I envisaged this work to create relations and transitions between images by the movement by playing on various sound, break, restart, etc.
"I love working on this way".
I didn't try to tell a real story, it's just about real... For me, this is a visual and sound creation made to share a personal experiment to the people who looks at it. I hope that the effect will work.
For the sound creation, I recorded sounds to NYC during moment when I didn't shot with my camera. As a result, I think this is good to have more choice in the sound edition. There were days where I looked for a sound in the city. It was really exciting…
Shot on 7D with Zeiss 50mm 1.4, zoom H4N, edited with Protools 9 and Final Cut Pro 7.

I was working on my next video "I need one dollar", and during the tests of editing I listened lots of music and I don't know why but I decided to use the one of Elliott smith ("High Times").
So, I take a look on Internet to watch a clip of this track and I didn't find there. So I wanted to give him a small "tribute" by making this "video fan".
Steven Paul "Elliott" Smith (August 6, 1969 – October 21, 2003) was an American singer-songwriter and musician. His primary instrument was the guitar, but he was also proficient at piano, clarinet, bass guitar, drums, and harmonica. Smith had a distinctive vocal style characterized by his whispery, spiderweb-thin delivery and use of multi-tracking to create vocal layers, textures, and harmonies.

These images and these sounds were recorded during a travel from "Toulouse" to "Paris", and from "Paris" to "Martinique". We see the North and the South of "Martinique", the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, during the rainy season in July, 2011.
This small video was thought before I arrive on the scene. The images were not priority but it's the sound which guided the shoot and the edition.
Sounds recorded with a zoom H4N (post sync).
Images shot with a tripod and a 7D.
