1. NYorkers // Gordon Hawkins

    At the top of a tiny building on an unassuming block lies the rooftop garden of Gordon Hawkins. If you were walking down the street in Carroll Gardens, you would probably have no idea that one of New York’s nicest rooftop gardens was lurking just above you. But that’s one of the many charms of living here. Unfortunately the house is being sold so we are some of the last privileged few to see it in full bloom. http://nyorkers.com http://www.moonshot-productions.com

      Alidoro sandwich shop is a neighborhood gem. If you don’t believe me, the line out the door gives further proof. But if you appreciate great food, it's well worth the wait. These Italian sandwiches are pure goodness. Walter Momentè runs the place and is the maestro of what might be New York City’s finest sandwich.  Check out Alidoro online at http://www.alidoronyc.com/ and follow them on Facebook. http://nyorkers.com http://www.moonshot-productions.com

        Warren Donner has style, and he couldn't care less whether you like it or not. But it's not just his clothes-it's so much more. From the yellow Corvette to the jewelry to the hair, Warren has turned himself into a visual masterpiece. If you don't like what you see, that's okay, but if you cross him, he ain't holding back. http://nyorkers.com http://www.moonshot-productions.com

          Gary Arnold is the mad scientist of sound. In his trademark black t-shirt, his unkempt hair wildly sticking out in every direction, Arnold keeps nocturnal hours at his mixing board, creating mind-blowing audio mixes for movies, television, commercials and more. After 23 years of toiling under the constraints of various post-production houses, Arnold broke away in 2006 to become the owner and sole proprietor of Gary's Chop Shop, a high-end audio facility in lower Manhattan. While his manner and methods may seem unconventional, the two Emmy awards adorning his window sill are proof of Arnold’s genius. http://nyorkers.com http://www.moonshot-productions.com

            Shooting with Sabe made for an interesting Friday afternoon. The heat and humidity was oppressive both outside and inside his Brooklyn studio but his place had a very cool and artistic vibe. You walk in and there is art everywhere- covering the walls, tubed up, and on the floors. We found Sabe’s work to be extremely process oriented and the process is actually a huge part of his art. Apparently he doesn’t like to draw or create in the traditional sense by just using his hand. So for years now he has been creating a series of different machines that actually create his artwork. I asked Sabe to explain some of his processes and below is what he wrote: “Painting with compressed gas and a heat gun is thermodynamic art. A process discovered by accident. Once perfected, the procedure involves ink freezing, diluting, heating and coagulation. The end result is always random and arbitrary. The windshield machine was built with an interest in the notion of automation and involving robotics with the process of painting. The drawing motor equipped with a dimmer to control acceleration is a geometric pattern drawing machine. Velocity and angular momentum determine if the line drawn is a sphere or spiral. Sabe's art is interdisciplinary involving an understanding of engineering and physics.” http://nyorkers.com http://www.moonshot-productions.com

              We shot with Colin Huggins on a scorching August day last summer. Colin is a truly amazing musician, much better than you would expect from a street performer. On nice days, he plays his piano free of charge in New York’s Washington Square Park for all to enjoy. We wanted to really get a good feel for Colin’s daily routine so we met him where he starts his working days- a Manhattan Mini Storage in downtown NYC. Colin has a system set up that he has honed over years where he wheels his piano down to the street level and then pushes this gigantic thing up 6th avenue, across west third street and into the park. Once he arrives in the park, out of breath, he must re-assemble the piano that has been taken apart for transport. Its quite a process and just one of the amazing things that everyday New Yorkers do. NYorkers.com was lucky to get the chance to ride along. http://nyorkers.com http://www.moonshot-productions.com
