Gian Luigi Carminati is a passionate and poetic 76 years old man who spent his entire life repairing cameras.
In his small workshop in Milan he takes care of old cameras with just a set of screwdrivers and a lot of patience.
We spotted his workshop randomly, we just passed by his shop and we got curious since we saw so many old cameras on display.
Six months ago I moved to New York City. Since then, I’ve lived out the life that I’ve always dreamed. Whether I was roof-topping, photographing, skateboarding, or just hanging with friends, I had my camera by my side ready to film it all. This film is the story of my first couple months in the greatest city on earth. I’ve never put more work into one project, so I hope you all enjoy it 🙂
This is a companion piece to my Fall time-lapse from a few years ago. I wanted it to be the polar opposite of the first one. Not just the Fall vs Spring. But wide shots vs close ups, everything in focus vs shallow depth of field, very cuty vs one shot, contemporary music vs classical, static camera vs moving camera.
I shot on a Canon 5D MK2 with a 24mm prime lens. To achieve the continuous motion I used the Dynamic Perception Stage One Slider.
All in all this took 3 years to shoot. I shot over 8TB of 5k footage. It’s finished in 4k.
