New York Park

They say that New York City can be like a giant playground but there isn’t no need to take it literally, is there? This is a seriously cool piece of film.  The usual New York landmarks are all there, it’s just that now they come complete with their own fairground attractions – and a host of screaming people enjoying the ride. This makes your mind boggle and I do have to admit that I did get a little jealous too... jealous of CGI. Time to call those nice men in white suits perhaps.

This hugely enjoyable short was created by Fernando Livschitz of Black Sheep Films. As he is based in Argentina it is only appropriate that he is also responsible for this surreal take on his country’s capital, Buenos Aires. Ah, life is a roller coaster after all!
