The past few weeks here in New Jersey and New York have been pretty rainy and not so nice. With that in mind, I came across a video that really caught my attention and had me confused for a good minute or so. For a while I thought I had been out of the loop, when suddenly I realized that this was just another sort of filming "trick" to fool the eye. Relating to my last article, this "video" takes it to another level showing a city we probably all know flooded by water. For me, it was not much of a pleasant sight and if this were to really happen, I can't imagine how much we would all be affected by it.
I have to say that I am impressed with this work. I can imagine that these are stills and the water and movement is added in. There is an extreme attention to detail with the movement of the flags, the lights, reflections in the water, wet stains on the building, and everything else going on. It is amazing how real everything looks and because of that, I almost thought this actually happened in New York and I was wondering why I didn't hear about it. The video was very gloomy, pretty much all silent aside from a few words that leaves it up to us viewers to interpret what exactly is going on.
