Update. This past weekend was a busy one with several interviews and locations shoots conducted. On Friday I went to the top floor Chrysler Building to interview Frankie Campione of Create Architecture and Alan Ritchie. Frankie designed a concept a few years ago to turn the Pavilion into an Air and Space museum, but due to a variety of circumstances, it never got off the drawing boards. Mr. Ritchie was Philip Johnson's architectural partner during the last few year of his life and now runs the late architects firm. The interviews went really well and I'm looking forward to pushing out another little teaser soon with bits of their interview.
On Saturday I met up with some of the folks that paint the stripes on the lower level of the NYSP. I got some great shots and interviews that are sure to be inspiring. If you want to help there effort, or know someone who does, support their great work at http://www.gofundme.com/1se3vg
The parks dept. do not fund their painting effort. They purchase the paint with the money they get from GoFundMe donations and from their own pockets. They are some fine people.
Every bit helps including spreading the word.
Anyway, more video updates coming soon!
