This video is from New York photographer J. Martinez. It documents just a little Sunday riding in NYC.
I think this video is successful for a number of reasons. I guess the most striking thing about this “video” is that it is in fact just a collection of over 3,000 still images. I also like how the color is toned down to an almost sepia-toned level, giving it a cool feel. It has a number of different shots, at different angles, and at different spots giving it enough variance that it isnt boring.
The sound in this piece definatly adds to the “New Yorker” feel. By using A Beastie Boys track it, not only drives the video, but helps to establish that this is New york and these are New Yorkers.
