This video was created for the Vimeo Weekend Project Contest, “The Magic Hour”. Footage was shot at magic hour on a canon T2i in Bethesda Terrace located within Central Park NYC. Music for this video was composed by my dear friends of Then Said Almitra.

My first summer in NYC was a whirlwind of new experiences. It was my first break away from my full time job in tv post production and my full course load in my graduate program at Parsons. This video in a lot ways represents the first time that I was able to simply explore the city and expose the atypical aspects of a normal day in Central Park, maybe things that most might take for granted– say the local musicians or the retirees who are enjoying their sport of roller skating. This was also my first video where I implemented a color grading workflow and put the latest magic lantern firmware to use on my dslr camera.
