This opening montage from the rockumentary CutTime is a fun look at a New York City that no longer exists.
I met producer Sarah Bleakley at an Indian restaurant on 6th Street in Manhattan. She was friends with my University of Michigan classmates Ellen Kappus and Tracey Weaver. When she learned I was an online/linear video editor, she got very excited, “You’re a good person to know!” She was looking for an editor and told me all about her big project to gather a bunch of underground New York City bands in one venue and shoot the performance element of a documentary in one night.
So I got recruited and we made CutTime together. In addition to editing, I contributed the color Super 8 footage – outtakes from my video of “Song on Fire” by Naked Sun, Max Vanderwolf’s old band. Sarah and I went on to make The Eyes of St. Anthony together.
