A 3 minute documentary about use of space, change and the wonderful feeling of New York as seen biking from Brooklyn to Manhattan
My plan is to spend 3 weeks video taping my ride from Brooklyn to Manhattan, then spend 2 weeks editing it down to a 3 minute documentary capturing my daily journey. I'm literally going to tape my handi-cam to my bike at different times/places/angles and go.
I want the video to be about a few key aspects:
- Change as a part of New York City's function
- Travel as expression
- The complete access to daily life bikers have - outside vs. outside voyeurism
- The 'Feel Good' aspects of New York City
My ride is from the Brooklyn writer's neighborhood of Windsor Terrace to the famously occupied Manhattan neighorhood of TriBeCa. It's 5.5 miles and takes me 30-40 minutes. I bike on pathways, shared streets go up one ways and on sidewalks illegally, over the Gowanus Canal, Brooklyn Bridge, through City Hall Park and along side Prospect Park.

Thank You for your time and hopefully, contribution. I'm excited for this small and mighty project and can't wait to get started. I will surely post progress and pass along anything interesting I see or find out. I love this city and documentaries and can't wait to share what I experience everyday.
Peace and Love,
Jamie Amy Ann
