The challenge was this – take your camera around town for a month, shoot whatever you get yourself into, add some drone shots, pro editing, and some local music and put it on Youtube. These guys are good – and they picked a hell of a town for their subject.
Here I present to you one of the more accurate views of Cleveland, Ohio, USA you will ever see. This is us, this is what we do with our summers. I was at a couple of the events this camera attended, this is our summer of 2014. This is the town that is the butt of so many internet jokes:
Amazing what some good production work can do, huh? We’ve seen so much video like this where the subject was NY, Vegas, LA, London, Tokyo, Austin… but rust belt cities are usually shot so poorly. There’s so much to see and do here when you stop caring about what everyone thinks.
And yes we have to move these parties indoors for half the year, because it’s a grey frozen tundra out there – although the global warming is providing us with milder winters!
Summer ain’t over yet! This weekend we will be at the Cleveland Garlic Fest – yes – it’s a local farmers market turned street fair with Top Chef contests, bands all weekend, kids area, and Musicians Garden giving music for all.
