Well, here we are, at the end of my second summer session course. And here is the final project. I collaborated with Paul Galando. And an awesome time was had by all. The assignment was to create a 2-5 minute video inspired by NYC and either “a sidewalk encounter” or “private vs. public life.” So, clearly, we opted for the encounter option. We created a film noir style movie trailer for a movie (starring, filmed by, produced by, and edited by us… with great art direction/film help from Leon) so that we could run around Coney Island looking mysterious and dramatic.

Happily, it was an overcast and drizzly day, so everything looks particularly dismal. Just the way we wanted. And so… without further ado, the trailer:
