If you set up a camera, people will walk in front of it. If you set up a camera on a 36 inch slider that advances itself on a motor at a snails pace, people will stand in front of it and ask you what the heck you’re doing. That’s ok. Reno is full of curious people.
I like Reno. I like taking pictures. I like making videos. I like hanging out and looking at things. There are a lot of things being said about what is good for Reno, and what it means to be from Reno, or to visit Reno or to be a business person in Reno by a lot of smart people who live and work and play in Reno. Chances are, they’re all right. This is a city, not a lab experiment that you can quantify and predict. (Even the science of predicting the weather here is one step above a wild ass guess.)
One thing I will say is this: If you love Reno and you want to make Reno awesome, make something cool.
My contribution (I hope) is this
Reno Time (working title)
Over the next few months I will be capturing small simple scenes like these and building a video that shows how cool Reno is. At least as I see it. If you see me, please feel free to stand in front of the camera, and do something strange, say hello or whatever. (just know that you have to stand there for at least 10 or 12 seconds to leave an impression.)
The music in this clip is Reno by The Billy Nayer Show. You may remember this song from the AWESOME video that hit and died a few years ago. You can get this song on iTunes if you want it: Reno – Bns Presents. (and you do)
