City of Dreams

June 16th, 2005 No comments

I can’t believe it’s been 4 years since shooting City of Dreams (Directed by Joseph Pierson). This was my first film experience and I was just so excited. The call was 5am in New York City Central Park and I arrived there at 4:30. I was hungry for work. Even if it meant only getting $20 for the day and a free lunch meal. Most of the time was waiting for the crew to get setup and the clouds to pass. There was also a group of tourists that kept running into the shot.

Can you find me in one of the photos? 🙂 Hehehe

The story that unfolds is of a magical New York; like a dream it is at once familiar, yet impossible. The year is 1932 and we follow the promising love story of a dapper man and a pretty young woman who meet by chance on the Subway. The Dapper Man loses the Young Woman almost as soon as she first commands his attention, but he eventually finds her again, working in a novelty shop. Will he take her on the Coney Island roller coaster ride she pines for so?

The narrative ultimately circles back upon itself, weaving Sarah and her homeless guy together with the past. The Lost City of New York has love, loss, redemption and the promise of a brighter tomorrow — all in twelve minutes.
