An aspiring film-maker decides to make July 24th the subject of his first film. Eric Larkin, unexpectedly, paints one of the most honest portraits of the life of a single man, looking for love and searching for his place a city that doesn't look like him. The film uses Seattle as a backdrop for his journey. Larkin zooms around the city on his scooter from friend to friend, struggling to find his place. The whole film was shot in one day on his mobile phone, adding to the approachability of the picture. Larkin says he is "astonished of the depth of life that can be found in one single, ordinary day."
PARK SLOPE, BROOKLYN,
Among the most charming neighborhoods you'll find in New York City. Well established, but still retaining that NYC grit, it's the perfect place for a Saturday stroll of inspiration.
A camera in hand and a leisurely walk through Brooklyn's Prospect Park gave way to this piece about the simple things in life. Inspired by Robert Service's poem, we set out to capture ordinary moments to bring to life the vivid imagery in the piece "A Rolling Stone."
Sometimes the best walks have no rational- neither does this film. We met dogs, laughed at little kids and made a new musical friend. Discovering Park Slope and new people was the perfect setting for this poetic prose.
