Last week, I posted the Brooklyn video from Fifty People, One Question, a straightforward, but remarkably vivid series of video interviews produced by Deltree and Crush & Lovely. In case you missed it, here's the deal: the crew stakes out a high-traffic spot -- by the side of the road in Brooklyn or under an arched underpass in London -- asks fifty people the same question, and then films their responses.
The project started in New Orleans and was so well received that Deltree and Crush & Lovely began traveling to more cities and asking more questions. The vignettes are set to music and edited in a way that creates a soft, layered effect. Watch the video and glimpse a slice of life -- and humanity. Your own responses to the filmmakers' question (in the comments section of the last post "Where Would You Wish To Wake Up Tomorrow") ranged from travel-oriented: "Kulanaokuaiki Campground-outside Volcano National Park, HI" to level-headed: "Next to a kind, warm hearted, socially aware woman who cares about this world and its people" to poignant: "Next to my husband. He passed away 6 weeks ago." Here's another video of people interviewed last autumn in downtown Manhattan about their hopes and dreams for that very day.
WATCH the video and please respond to the question in the comments section below:
