8 Hours in Brooklyn: Slow Motion Video From Next Level Pictures

Summer in Brooklyn means a lot of things – hacked fire hydrants, outdoor eating/drinking, pavement hot enough to fry an egg, (insert fond Brooklyn summer memory here).  Next Level Pictures went ahead and captured 8 hours of footage throughout BK without any pre-production, putting together one of the summer-vibe movies we have ever seen. Enjoy and keep this one handy for those cold winter months, because this one really brightens up the day.

Via the Next Level Pictures blog, Jonathan Bergel says of the video:

The idea behind this video was to document whatever sort of culture we could find within an 8 hour span with literally no pre-production. I have honestly seen too many slow-motion explosions, face slaps, and popping water balloons, that I thought capturing real culture, and real emotion would be a cool change of pace. My goal was to successfully pull of a few of these shots with a small crew in order to be able to pitch the Phantom Flex for a lot of the documentary work we shoot/produce.
