The Beat of New York: Thomas Noesner

Filmmaker Thomas Noesner captures the energetic pulse of the big city. Along with the folks at Stereoscreen, including Tim Hahne, Noesner took the sights and sounds of New York city and laid them down to a remixed soundtrack of a drummer performing in a subway station.

I live in New York city and just loved this piece. You can smell and feel "it" in this short clip of 3 minutes. The drummers who use empty drywall compound containers to play their infectious beats are fixtures in subway stations or parks, and the piece used in this movie is a perfect for it. Excellent choice, and it gives a highly recommended buzz.

I hope it inspires me to get on with film-making using my Canon 5D Mark II in the West Village and Chinatown!
