Man in a Blizzard


(YouTube link)

Man in a Blizzard, also possibly at one time called Idiot with a Tripod, is Jamie Stuart's observations during the blizzard that hit New York City. It was filmed on Saturday, edited in almost no time, uploaded to YouTube Sunday, and earned a great review from Roger Ebert.

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.

Very nice! I found an HD version up on Vimeo which I suggest watching for the full experience. A lot of subtleties, including the falling snow, are all but lost in the YouTube compression artifacts.

Absolutely beautiful. I couldn't believe how many people were actually out in such weather. Loved the music. I too was worried about the dog, glad when it finally moved. Thanks for posting.

Had it happened in the Midwest, it would have been a minor news story. Every time it rains or snows, the Northeast acts like it's the end of the world. Wussies.
