Those kids over at Kinfolk are something. After yesterday’s holiday I’m not quite ready to go back to the grind (even if it IS only two days!). An Ode to Summer is the perfect combination of carefree, yearning, and hipster. Maybe it will help ease you back into the week as well.
It’s been far too long since a new Wes Anderson flick graced my life. Far, far too long. May 25th is going to be amazing because I’ll most likely be one of the nerds waiting in line to see Moonrise Kingdom. If you haven’t yet, check out the trailer here! (character posters via indiewire)
Freelance cameraman Andrew Clancy started filming his life in New York City and just kept going. Eventually he stopped, and when he did he sat down and edited this amazing 4-minute short film – A Year in New York.
Living in New York I’d grab my Canon 7D, or S95, and shoot footage of what was going on around me. It seemed like a never ending project and you could stay filming life in New York for a long time.
Eventually I put the camera down and started to edit. Here’s the end result, it’s a bit rough and ready 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.
