Abandoned City

Abandoned City

This is a short documentary capturing a group photo-blog shoot with a concept of Urban Decay. The location is an abandoned warehouse in Gary, Indiana. We drove down from Chicago very early on a Sunday morning to be safe since the area is shady.

I used a Canon HV20 with Crystal Vision wide lens, Calico Cam stabilizer, and a Manfrotto fluid head on a tripod. None of this video was directed, just capturing the day of events. At the end you might notice all the "junk", it's piles and piles of clothes.

The audio track is Snowflake by TrentMoller.

Awesome work! I'm a writer and I needed some desciptive visuals of abandonned cities (hard to find in docs because no one wants to think about it). I especially liked the rolling paint peels, reminiscent of oversized chocolate curls and the mix of mud and grass and lino under the pourdown of rain through the roof.
Thanks for showing off your work!

Congratulations Mark. A superb set of films. Looking forward to more.
