Prompt: Use well-edited footage, combined with a poem created using found-type throughout NYC to make a short film.

My idea for the video centered around the creation of a poem. Through this poem, I wanted to elicit a few of the emotions people feel living in New York City. Through found type in The Lower East Side, the video stays grounded in a neighborhood of Manhattan, pulling from its history and change.
