The Big Apple.
The capital of the world.
The center of the universe.
The city that never sleeps.
Bagdad on the Subway.
And so on. New York is and has been a lot of things to a whole lot of people.
Last week, I didn’t publish a video for my weekly movie challenge because I was working on a travelogue of our recent trip to New York City. This week’s 5-minute video is the result of two weeks of work.
I’ve done narrated videos of trips before, mostly so my mother could see my photographs and enjoy our trips from the comfort of her living room. This was an entirely different effort, all theme/feel and no chronology. I knew it would take longer than the others I’ve tackled, and it did.
The first challenge was finding a soundtrack that would blend with (or at least not distract from) a wide range of photographs and video. The next was just not getting lost in all the photos and video clips.
