1. I recently spent a little over a month hotel hopping in Manhattan (March 12th to April 29th) shooting time lapse. These clips were pulled from over an hours worth of footage.

  2. As a filmmaker living in New York for the first time, I'd grab my Canon 7D and shoot footage of what was going on around me, to try and take in all that was happening. To try and capture the sense of community I felt in a place so large and diverse.

    The HDSLR was a great tool for this. It allowed me get in among people and crowds but at the same time not draw attention to myself.

    It seemed like a never ending project and you could stay filming life in New York for a long time. But eventually I put my camera down and started to edit. Here's the end result, it's a bit rough and tumble but that's life in the Big Apple I guess.

    Turn up the volume or put your in earphones for the beautiful song 'We Don't Eat' by Irishman James Vincent McMorrow.

    For those who asked these are the lens I used:
    Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM
    Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II
    Sigma 20mm f/1.8 EX DG RF
