“Fly on Out,” above, is a short film by Robert Kolodny from Brooklyn-based production collective House of Nod. They explain:
The film was shot on the super slow motion Phantom Miro High Speed Camera, thanks to a grant by AbelCine and Vision Research. The film is a colorful kaleidoscope of kinesthetic imagery showing off all the grit and beauty that is Brooklyn.
The story features an eleven-year-old boy who is chased through the streets, project houses and basketball courts of Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. As residents of the neighborhood, the team aimed to provide the audience with a hyper-stylized look at life beneath the J train. Many of the film’s actors were local residents found while shooting on the street. From handball to sneakers over telephone wires to barbershops and bodegas, "Fly on Out" is a refreshingly classic look at Kings County.
