Man In Blizzard

I know I am just rubbing it in at this point but if you can take another look at the 'horrow from above' you might enjoy this short. If not I will enjoy it for you. I hate to admit this New York but you DID get a resonably large amount of snow dropped on you in a short period of time. You have earned an additional ten mintutes to lose your shit over this end of civilization event.

"Man in a Blizzard, also possibly at one time called Idiot with a Tripod, is Jamie Stuart’s observations during the blizzard that hit New York City. It was filmed on Saturday, edited in almost no time, uploaded to YouTube Sunday, and earned a great review from Roger Ebert.

This film deserves to win the Academy Award for best live-action short subject.
(1) Because of its wonderful quality. (2) Because of its role as homage. It is directly inspired by Dziga Vertov’s 1929 silent classic “Man With a Movie Camera.” (3) Because it represents an almost unbelievable technical proficiency."

That was really good!
I can only image the chaos that would take place if we had that weather in the L.A. area....
