Washington Square Park Distilled

Back in November, I teamed up with Chris Littler (who is apparently my muse) and Ellen Winter of Chamber Band to shoot a music video for their insanely amazing song, "Love Left." 

We got up early as hell and traipsed all over New York City, from Times Square to the East Village, with a good amount of gear, several outfit changes, and of course a selfie stick in tow. The original idea was to cut a video made exclusively of iPhone footage from the selfie stick, but once we saw this incredible slow-motion single take of Ellen passing through Washington Square Park, this was the only way to do the video. It has everything. Skateboarders, a live jazz band, massive soap bubbles, and of course, pigeon man, all shot at 96 fps.

If you've ever wondered what Greenwich Village is like on a crisp autumn day, this video encapsulates it pretty well. So please watch for a trip through all the elements one will experience in roughly :30 seconds in Washington Square Park, and even moreso, for Ellen's incredible vocals on this outstanding song.
