Greg King, The Fair Trade movie’s editor, posts new film

Greg King, our wonderful editor who did such a beautiful job interpreting director Lauralee Farrer’s vision on the film The Fair Trade, just wrote us:

Hello friends,

A short experimental film of mine titled ‘Manhattan Canyon’ is viewable online, and I’d love to share it with you.  It was selected as part of a partnership between Rooftop Films and the Independent Film Channel (IFC.com), where shorts that have screened at Rooftop in the past are collected online.

My film just got posted this week, and you can find it here.

I made this piece a few years ago, as a structural/poetic portrait of New York. I walked from the furthest point I could reach on the east side of Manhattan, and shot a single frame of film at every street intersection, all the way down to the bottom tip of the island, then repeated the process from a similar starting point on the west side a few days later.  This film is the result of that crazy challenge to myself.  The accompanying track, ‘Reflecting Surfaces’, is by rachel’s, from the album ‘systems/layers’.

There’s tons of interesting shorts to watch in the collection, so have fun!

Greg

Thanks, Greg, for the link.
