A Drive-Thru Rochester

December 11th, 2011

Freeze frame from the video. This guy can often found on the corner of Monroe and Goodman peddling pizza and our camera happened to catch him while we were stopped at the light.
A few weeks ago I was driving home from my downtown office and happened to have my camera with me. Not sure why but I thought it be interesting to see what I’d capture if I left it on my dashboard for the ride. Now don’t try this at home—distracted driving is not cool. I’m a professional… idiot that is.

Anyway, the results I thought were pretty cool. And it got even cooler with some quick editing and quadruple speed playback. Throw in a mirror effect and some of that dope-ass hip hop music all the kids are listening to… and now we’ve got something worth sharing.

So go ahead—turn down the lights, pump up the volume, and hit it full screen. Let me know what you think in the comments.

Here are a few still shots from the video:

    Great stuff, Mike!

    Great work. You have unmined talents! Gotta send this off to my daughter in Boston.

  6. Glad you all enjoyed it. Rochester is a pretty photogenic town really. The most difficult part was narrowing down the footage to 2:30min.

  7. A great video! Thanks for all the work that obviously went into it.

  8. […] Here’s something for the Rochester readers, from Rochester Subway. […]

    Blew mine and my girlfriend’s minds. I’m totally showing this video to my upcoming students when I’m student teaching in a month. Brilliant way to represent Rochester.

  10. JenniferZV says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!
    I like picking out the landmarks I recognized 😉

  11. Jim Fraser says:

    Mike, I finally got a chance to view your work. This is insanely cool. You have a gift. Stay crazy!
