A Love Letter to Baltimore: A Foreword

Woody Allen’s Manhattan opens with a stunning tribute to New York City; a simple, clean, black and white look at the city accompanied by the alluring music of George Gershwin. A definitive classic. The sequence is the Allen’s love letter to the city that raised and inspired him. As Scorsese was showing audiences the Mean Streets of the New York, Allen brought us a much more auspicious, idealistic view of the city. The softer side of the “Big Apple.”

Last semester I took an American Art History course that focused on the development and architectural language of four major cities: Philadelphia, New York, Boston and Baltimore. The last of which I am currently taking refuge in. While the course did more harm than good to my GPA, I would be remiss if failed to acknowledge - despite my best efforts - that the course increased my appreciation and affection for “Charm City.”     

Ever since I returned to Baltimore for a sixth semester at school I’ve wanted to create a piece that shows off the true gems of the city. The softer side of The Wire.

With my first episode of Tour Baltimore I hope to capture Baltimore with the elegance with which Allen captured New York. A simple black and white look at the city that has been so generous to me in the past three years. 

Back to Work

Got myself back into After Effects today. Feels like home, doesn’t it? A barren 1920 x 1080 composition just begging to be filled with my ideas. I’m putting a lot of work into my university’s campus television/internet station GreyCommTV this semester; so After Effects will, indeed, be my home. For the first time in my 1.5 years here I feel the station really has a shot at making some great programs. I look forward to contributing great video, graphics, and design in the upcoming weeks and months. 

The Prologue

I just finished shooting a trailer/prologue for a new film I’m going to be working on over the summer. I’m trying to have the editing done by Wednesday but I already know this week is going to be crazy with work. Hopefully I’ll have it done by Wednesday before I go back home, or else it’ll have to be moved to next week… which wouldn’t be fun for any of us.
