Williamsburg

Filmmaker John Mattiuzzi writes:

When I set out to film my neighborhood in Williamsburg, Brooklyn the night of the hurricane, I did not anticipate the footage I was about to film. My main goal was to make a short film of whatever I captured that night. A small art film was the idea. But after the explosion, things quickly changed for me. Two weeks later, I finally had time to edit this film together, and show a small perspective of the storm: "A One Block's Story."
This film is an emotional response of what it actually felt like to be out in hurricane Sandy, amidst all the immense energy, that eventually consumed parts of ours.

"When I set out to film my neighborhood in Williamsburg"

OK, but you used video. Saying you're "filming" something when you are using a video camera is an immediate confession of amateurishness.

" A small art film was the idea."

By whose fucking standards? You fucking ego maniac. You ain't no Stan Vanderbeek.

Sorry, as a life long New Yorker and Long Beach homeowner whose first floor was flooded out, I like this video. You don't have to be douchebags all your life and hate everything. Smile, it's good for you.

I'm glad for all the documents of this historic and horrific natural disaster. It's the hipster filter that taints it, and that awful music.
That area was all shipping and docks for a long time.. maybe people are being reminded why it wasn't 'luxury' condos at any time in New York's history.. It's a mistake, and this is just the first wave (no pun intended).
If you build your house on a volcano, you should not be surprised when it erupts.

This video is much better than the above comments led me to believe it would be.
