New Work: "July 4th In Pilsen (2011)"


This latest microshort is essentially just shots set to music for 90 seconds, so no plot or punchline or anything. The 4th is easily my favorite holiday in Chicago, and mostly because I discovered a few years ago how amazing Pilsen can be that night of the year.

I didn't start filming until almost midnight, so the vast majority of fireworks were over by the time this video starts. Even still, the skyline was peppered with explosions in almost every direction (not to mention the streets and sidewalks...), and they continued until almost two days later.
