The City is an audio visual tryptic short film that captures a man’s day in New York City. The man is no one in particular, but his routine is relatable to anyone who calls this living and breathing metropolis their home. The City explores the loneliness that people feel while grinding through their routines only to discover that they have incredible similarities to their unknown neighbors. The film is set to and named after an original score created by composer Brian Hoes, and was created using a synthesizer and a microphone to record samples of sounds of life in New York City. The City is my NYU Tisch Department of Photo & Imaging Thesis project for the Class of 2017. It was created over the course of my attendance at NYU in collaboration with my Friend and Composer Brian Hoes.
