The Beat of New York (video)
I’ve visited New York City a number of times (mostly recently documented here and here) and I think this video does a fantastic job of capturing the energy, sound, people and grit that is the Big Apple. The fact that it was shot by a couple of German film makers in between their actual work (doing a commercial) only makes it that much cooler. Check it out:
THE BEAT OF NEW YORK – A STEREOSCREEN PRODUCTION
Thomas Noesner, our DoP, was in New York for a shoot of the new Mercedes R-Class. Right after the job, he took his camera and strolled through the busting streets of “The City“. While screening the pictures of a drummer in the tube station, I had the idea of creating a “remix“ of the recorded drum sequence to use it as a soundtrack for the film. That´s when our sound designer Toussaint came into play… We composed a track around the drum beat of this guy. Watch and listen to the beat of New York!
