Is This Video Oscar Worthy?
Roger Ebert thinks so!
Here is a simple yet cool video of the NYC blizzard shot by Jamie Stuart with a camera and tripod. There is a time before the snow turns into slush that is truly beautiful. Roger Ebert thinks that this three-and-a-half minute video is Oscar Worthy.
This film deserves to win the Academy Award for best live-action short subject.(1) Because of its wonderful quality. (2) Because of its role as homage. It is directly inspired by Dziga Vertov’s 1929 silent classic “Man With a Movie Camera.” (3) Because it represents an almost unbelievable technical proficiency. It was filmed during the New York blizzard of Dec. 26, and Jamie Stuart e-mailed it to me with this time stamp: December 27, 2010 4:18:18 PM CST.
