The Artsy-Fartsy (And Quite Enjoyable) “Idiot with a Tripod” – Fun Cool Sh*t #10

In case you missed this  – its a charming and talented piece of artsy filming and editing done during the huge NYC snowstorm this last winter.

The pleasure of it comes, I think, from the well placed cuts and fades of images from a matter-of-fact kind of event (a snowstorm in a city) so aptly timed with the chosen music.  I have actually found myself viewing it a couple times in a sitting, enjoying the story it tells so succinctly and not without a good dash of humor!
