Fourth in the unintentional “series”, after Sofia, Dublin and San Francisco. This time it’s Venice Beach in LA that is the focus. View the original video at YouTube.

Director’s notes: “…so instead of the usual posing I took a more documentary approach to the subject. Still mostly focusing on interesting characters rather than the glamour…I used a lot of sync and all of it was capture using the simple RODE Video Mic. You can hear the AGC but the sound is surprisingly good. Downside of RODE is you cannot take stills using viewfinder as it gets in the way. Check out the lifeguard section, that sound was all recorded at the distance shown in the big wide shot.”
