Description

An Irish artist Sean Corcoran and an American videographer Hy Mayerson set off on a journey from Miami to New York recently in an attempt to capture a portrait of America and to create the footage for Wait for me. The video consists of 1480 photographs that were taken in 34 minutes 11 seconds from the corner of 34th street and 7th Avenue in New York, edited by Jason Joseph. Lonely in a crowd, lost in a sea of nameless people, standing still as the world passes by.

Further details of the project and the making of this video can be seen on their website www.MiamiToNewYork.com

No Joy this time

Yes we’re disappointed we weren’t shortlisted but we are proud of what we have accomplished. Thank you for viewing and voting for our Moby Wait for me video. We’re delighted with the reaction, positive comments and support we have received. We had over 230 views and 78 direct votes on the Genero.tv competition site.

We were completely stunned with the amazing response we got from our YouTube version with over 5700 views in one week! We also have received an honor from YouTube for the amount of views in one week, it says #29-Most Viewed-This Week- Film & Animation - Czech Republic. I imagine this means that we were ranked in 29th place in the category of Film and Animation in the Czech Republic. We love you Czech Republic! At one stage we were getting over 60 views per hour. Hy or I have never experienced this kind of viral takeoff before.

Unfortunately we have not been selected to the final six of the competition. The quality of entries in all honesty has been superb with many different interpretations of the same song. It’s been an education to be part of this creative mindset, over 500 entries all together I believe. The selected entries are as follows;

The 4 finalists chosen by Moby and Genero.tv are:
Video 1794 - Martin Winther (Denmark)
Video 3874 - Anthony H (United States)
Video 4370 - Petr Tomaides (Czech Rebublic)
Video 8258 - Maik Hempel (Australia)

The 2 finalists based on votes are:
Video 4786 - Sergey and Alexandr (Belarus)
Video 4562 - Nimrod Shapira (Israel)

Congratulations to all concerned and best of luck. A big thanks also to all the guys at Genero.tv who have been great encouragement and very helpful with any queries we had along the way.

We’ll be back!

Hello there

WE NEED YOUR VOTE!

Hy Mayerson and I have entered this video competition with some of the footage from our recent journey across America. As you may know by now it's a music video for the title track of Moby's new album called Wait for me. The video features 1480 photographs of busy New Yorkers crossing 34th Street and 7th Avenue. It's a haunting song and we have tried to present the idea of being lonely in a crowd.

The vote button is just below the video, enter your email address, unclick the members box and submit your vote. That's it. We're really proud of this little production and we hope you like it too.

Please could you send a link to this page to as many people as you can. Deadline is this Monday the 12th at midnight GMT. 6 finalists announced on April 13th. Overall winner announced on April 19th. Judging panel; Moby and Genero.tv

Further details of our collaboration can be seen here; www.MiamiToNewYork.com

Thanks a million,
Sean and Hy.

Here's an excerpt from a recent post on our MiamiToNewYork.com website/blog. It explains the process that was involved in capturing the images;

1480 photographs taken in 34 minutes 11 seconds in New York on the 16th of March, 2010 from my half of a cast iron lamp post on the junction of 34th street and 7th Avenue. Looking south as the evening sun casts a shadow across my cameras fixed view. Keeping in tight, holding onto my tripod on the edge of the sidewalk and trying to make myself small and not be in anyone way. Trying to be invisible. That isnt very difficult in New York. On the other half of the post an Asian man sells newspapers but he is eventually more amused by my antics, taking pictures constantly, trying to keep a rhythm, left-right-left-right, one-two-one-two, swinging my right hand to the pace in my head holding the shutter cord and trying to capture the rhythm of peoples feet as they pour across the road.

Trying to concentrate, not to be distracted, I turn away from my captive audience and continue shooting. A man is photographing me from about 10 feet away, or maybe hes making a video, but I do think its me hes shooting not the New York skyline. I feel Im not so invisible after all, in fact I feel like an attraction, an amusement, like a performance artist. I look at my watch, I stop, pick up my stuff and run across 34th street to our Starbucks office where Hy is holding court and charging equipment and minding bags and shooting out the window. We leave and Joseph a Moroccan Taxi driver brings us to JFK Airport.

The pictures might be still, but the video really brims with life. You got a very lovely piece here. I'm going to NYC this summer for the first time and I'm sure I'm gonna remember this video when crossing a zebra :)
I hope you like mine as well, it's the story of a little elephant searching for his chicken friend on the streets of Barcelona and Madrid: http://genero.tv/watch-video/6242/
Good Luck Bang!

Hy,Sean,&Jason: ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT, SUPERB,

For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
