[WATCH] "Moments", an Amazingly Peaceful Capture of New York City Residents in Slow Motion

Brooklyn cinematographer Tim Sessler owns and operates a great film company called Brooklyn Aerials. While they normally specialize in amazing aerial videos, to make this video, the team used a special handheld camera rig called the Firefly Mimic that allowed them to get the silky smooth look and feel. Combined with an excellent high-speed camera, they were able to capture this beautiful, peaceful collection of random New Yorkers going about their business in wonderful slow motion.

During the three days of production we were able to reach locations all over New York City easily [...] from Bedstuy in Brooklyn to Ridgewood and Willets Point in Queens and of course countless locations in Manhattan [...] from Wall Street to the Flat Iron to Central Park.

Check out the Brooklyn Aerials blog post about the Moments video for more about the camera setup or the team behind the shoot.
