Video Thing

I like this video shot in NYC. Thought you might, too.

The Lost Tribes of New York City from Carolyn London on Vimeo.

nyc is a cool place to visit man, but i just heard from a friend of mine who was paying $3000 a month for 496 square feet

called insane

get 650 square feet in chicago for $1250 with a lake view and what i call a more impressive skyline

This was an excellent creative piece. It sounds like they used real interviews with people and did some amazing work with the inanimate objects.

I wonder if they got strange looks from passersby while they filmed things like suitcases, a telephone booth, empty newspaper boxes etc. Of course, perhaps in New York that isn't so odd. I was smiling in one scene when the camera caught people walking across the street on a red light. I think that's probably pretty common too in the Big Apple. It's probably pretty common everywhere these days, but there's so much traffic in NY, it's probably a little riskier.

The voices sound like they are from Aardman Animations. They produced a series called Creature Comforts which briefly ran on tv (same voices). They also did Wallace & Gromit, Chicken Run,and Flushed Away. If you haven't seen them, you might take a look. Especially the Creature Comforts series. All are available on DVD.
