Abandoned Six Flags

I feel like it’s been ages since I blogged here. The short version: I’m in my last year of journalism studies and decided to go for a “TV” major. I feel like moving images are the next logical step for me, even though photography will always be a big part of my life. So for now this blog will partly be dedicated to my own video creations, inspirational stuff I find through Facebook or in my feeds, etc.

In “Abandoned Six Flags Tour” Teddy Smith portrays the Six Flags amusement park in New Orleans that was closed down in preparation for hurricane Katrina back in 2005. The park has never reopened since and is due for demolition coming january. I’m pretty sure the footage was taken with a DSLR camera which gives an amazing depth of field to the slightly moving shots of no man’s land. The soundtrack is very appropriate and adds extra suspense. Even though there isn’t any real movement or action in the shots, I was paying full attention for the entire length of the video.
