“Solo, Piano – N.Y.C.” – A video recently posted to the NY Times website is a wonderful use of still photographs to make a video. It is a great subject handled sensitively and effectively. The film maker Anthony Sherin saw a piano on the curb in front of his apartment waiting to be hauled off as trash. He photographed how passers-by interacted with the abandoned instrument. Combined with original music it is a really great video.
I have long been fascinated by stop motion video and done a few myself. One that is similar to the Solo Piano is my “Lonely Angel” of a pedicab driver in front of the Metropolitan Museum trying to attract customers by wearing some angel wings. You have to see it to appreciate it.
