very simple, clear structure: this is a great example of focusing on a very limited set of sites that are clearly related to one another (in this case, sites mostly visited during the last day, which focused on art installations in the landscape). very restrained use of still shots is also effective. i'm not sure about the juxtaposition of the bird soundtrack over the entire film, i think this helps with continuity but might paper over their key differences as well.
I like the choice about fixed shoot, it could offer people attention to the details but I personally don't think the bird soundtrack is good. Maybe use a soundtrack more connected to you theme-installation rather than use a bird soundtrack could make your video more effective.
Did you bring two birds with you all the time dude?
Didn't you notice the parakeets on his shoulder?
Good effort in choosing a specific theme for your film. There is not much to say about the sites you chose other than they are all related to each other. The shots were nice but they were kind of flat overall. I would have loved to seen a few more angles of the installations as opposed to long, drawn out shots. Overall, the film was effective and easy to follow.
Very nice video. The theme was clear and the restraint of special effects really helped enhance the quality. I would recommend using a different soundtrack, maybe the natural sounds or even the sounds of a New York City street to maybe make a comparison.
It's really clear way to represent your theme by using fixed shot and combine the urban installation. I'm interested in how the urban installation can involve in the landscape and influence on visitor's behavior and participation. However, I'm not sure how the birds sounds can engage in the theme of film. Is the installations create the birds habitats? or Is the birds sounds the key elements of installation?
I saw it when it was a draft. I like it very much!
Peaceful, gentle, elegant, and meaningful. And your idea is shown really clear. Great great work!
Very soothing to watch and listen. Your film has a meditative effect on the viewer, which is a major accomplishment in my book. Excellent work.
The video you took is very peaceful and stable! The only thing is that the bird soundtrack is continuing to several different videos, I think if you can make different sound clips took from the sites to be along with each video, that would be more interesting!
I definitely enjoyed the simplicity of this film. Maybe adding in a few more sites/ installations to give more of a diverse feel would have been helpful. Overall- nice!
Just like most of the comment said above, it's nice to see how the restraint of special effects and shots really helped enhance the theme. And in this film we can see a interesting phenomenon that when a art or installation was placed, people will automatically go over and begin to interact with it. Some will get closer, some will take a photo and some will just stand watching. It's interesting to observe the people's behavior. Few suggestions, one is about the bird song, maybe just highlight it in some installation that could respond to the surrounding and allow us to understand how the actual sound is in other places. Another one is about the variety of installation, are there any other types in NYC? such as the art on the street corner in Manhattan or even the artificial landform. Anyway, nice work!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
