Video Of The Day: New York City In 3 Words

3 words for NYC” from Cokau on Vimeo.

New York City might be polarizing in that love/hate kind of way, but in the end, the reasons to love the city seem limitless. One could use thousands of words to describe what’s to love about NYC, but the more difficult thing to do is to break the appeal of New York down into just three words. Vimeo user Cokau (which represents filmmakers Achille Coquerel and Thomas Kauffmann) asked New Yorkers to describe what they love about the city in just three words and the resulting footage has made this cool video titled “3 Words For NYC.” It’s worth the watch.

Video: NYC In Slow Motion

New York City is famous for never sleeping. The people within NYC are famous for rushing around. What if we could slow the whole thing down? James Nares gives viewers a glimpse of what this would look like with a video of NYC in slow motion: STREET. In a city as dense as NYC, magical little moments occur every second on a corner somewhere. Nares attempted to capture some of these moments, to give the small events room to breathe. And he did it beautifully.

Video: A year in New York

Andrew Clancy, a freelance photographer, cameraman, and editor who graduated from the National Film School in I.A.D.T. in Ireland and is currently based in New York, has spent the last year wandering the streets of the Big Apple with his Canon 7D, or S95, shooting footage of what was going on around him. He manages to capture not only the major sights of the city, but also rare moments and events that give you insight into the feelings and emotions of its people. And, with the background song “We Don’t Eat” by James Vincent McMorrow turned on loud, it is easy to feel a bit emotional while watching.
