[VIDEO] EROSION, a Stunning Short Film That Captures an Ever Changing New York City

EROSION is a stunning short film from Brooklyn Aerials and others that features 4 flex dancers in slow motion around a fast-paced and quickly gentrifying New York City.

Every New Yorker is familiar with Showtime dancers cheering up a full subway car - though these days dancers get arrested instead of earning tips for their talents. Dancers are being forced out of the subway and now have alternative events like “Its Showtime NYC” to legally dance above ground. This was the original inspiration for EROSION - a changing city, that is losing culture and character while it gets cleaned up. Moving towards a landscape of sterile glass high rises. It is a a safe, clean, boring new world!

Check out the accompanying blog post to learn more about the film, and the video equipment used to make it look this great!
