    "One of the best matches of visuals to music I’ve seen." -- Anne Midgette, Washington Post "Gorgeous." -- Alex Ross, New Yorker critic, in his blog The Rest Is Noise This project is growing into an opera: http://mosesjacobsopera.com More info on the director: http://www.joshuafrankel.net/Plan_Of_The_City.html https://twitter.com/#!/frankelfrankel More info on the music: http://www.nowensemble.com Making-of photos on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Plan-Of-The-City/170279963031275 A new film combing animation with live action conceived and directed by Joshua Frankel, about the architecture of New York City blasting off into outer space and resettling on Mars. The film’s visuals are an animated collage combining live action footage, animated elements, illustrations and treated photographs, including photos taken by the Mars rovers Spirit and Opportunity made available to the public domain by the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Plan of the City was created in collaboration with composer Judd Greenstein and NOW Ensemble, an acclaimed "indie classical" chamber ensemble; the ensemble, including Greenstein, feature prominently in the film as live actors set inside the animated framework. The audio of the film consists solely of Greenstein's Change, performed by NOW Ensemble; Change and Plan of the City were created in parallel, each expressing its own artistic intention while simultaneously serving its "sibling". The film was presented with the music performed live, timed to the film, at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City in May, 2011. It also exists as its own stand-alone entity, utilizing NOW Ensemble's recent studio recording of Change(out on New Amsterdam Records). Director: Joshua Frankel Music: “Change”, composed by Judd Greenstein and performed by NOW Ensemble Cast: Sara Budde, Patrick Burke, Logan Coale, Mark Dancigers, Judd Greenstein, Michael Mizrahi, Alexandra Sopp, Susie Simpson, Celia Au, Jonthan Chang, Dan Chen, William Lex Ham, Ting Hu, Tammi Lee, Doua Moua, Rachel Shapira Producer: Elissa Federoff DP: Clayton Combe Choreographer: Will Rawls AD: Rachel Horlick Key Grip: Christopher Fisher Gaffer: Justyn Davis Props: Eve Biddle Script Supervisor: George Westberg Stylist: Jenni Shaw Asst Stylist: Julianne Laney Casting Lauren Charkow PAs: Clark Frankel, Daisuke Kasagawa, John Kitsis Edited by: Joshua Frankel and George Westberg Greenscreen Keying and Rotoscoping: Spline VFX VFX Supervisor: Leslie Chung Tools Development: Clay Budin, Dan Fast Digital Artists: Dave C Frankel, Carolyn Frisch, Rio Harrington, Minwoo Lee, Suzanne Porush, Hyun Jung Ra, David Sarma, Adam Yost Studio and Invaluable Support provided by My Active Driveway Images of Mars Courtesy of NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory - Caltech Made possible with a generous grant from New York State Council On The Arts
