In February we were all thrilled when the Argentine director and artist epic visual effects Livschitz Fernando posted on his vimeo channel his short titled Inception Park . Where under the production house Black Sheep Films, had the wit to capture everyday scenes from the streets of Buenos Aires mixed with elements of fiction surreal dream-like, which turned the city into an amusement park literally.
It turns out that with the success Livschitz just take your proposal, which began as a simple personal project to the next level and launched the second video in this series now titled NEW YORK PARK, where basically repeats the same concept but now re-imagining the park rides and attractions installed at Luna Park in Coney Island to extend through the streets of the Big Apple.
The sensation produced as a result is somewhat puzzling, disturbing and dreamlike. The lighting and the unreality of the saw itself evokes a bit like Christopher Nolan film, but I'm not sure that relate directly to the concepts of Inception is absolutely right.
What it does is incredible is the wisdom of the locations, see the Empire State Building turned into a sideshow attraction dizzying to imagine turning on one of those games so many meters. Fifth Avenue, near Broadway, Brooklyn Bridge and other locations are recognizable, but largely absent here is the Statue of Liberty, which appears in the video a couple of seconds but the game became a mechanic, what would have been amazing.
I guess maybe was due to some kind of shame for being abroad and feeling like taking a big chance to lead the American patriotic pride. I do not know, yet I loved it.
