Today is our first selection for New York City Feelings “Best Video Of The Week”. In the past we have randomly picked our favorite New York City videos, and posted it up with very minor details. However, we feel we owe our fans every bit of details about these beautiful made videos of New York and their creators.

So without further ado, our first pick honors goes to Renan Kamizi of Curitiba, Brazil. His video is called “A Day In New York”. A summery vibe NYC video with some play on color transitions from B&W to color, with some nice subway flares at the end. Overall this video takes you on a very short journey on Renan’s day, through Manhattan. Starting from a bridge shot transitioned into car traffic on the NJ turnpike, to people walking, and into some skater action, before going back to some landscape shots. Without giving more details away, just watch the video, and we are sure you will get the NYC “Feels” with the accompany music. Oh yeah and that song is called “Middle” by DJ Snake featuring Bipolar Sunshine

We had a chance to interview Renan with some questions:

What is your name?

My Name is Renan Kamizi.

What do you do professionally for work?

I am student of advertisement at PucPr in Brazil.

When was the video taken?

This video was recorded last week in Junebetween the 11th-13th.

What was your purpose for the video or visit to NYC?

I went to New York just to visit the city, and like any filmmaker i ended up recording some images that resulted in this video.

What inspired you to make this video?

I love to watch videos that show such cities around the world, I think it’s a great way to know a place without going to visit indeed, so I decided to make my own version of New York.

What was you favorite place in NYC to film?

New York is an amazing city where anywhere generates incredible takes, I believe the best place to film and take photos are Central Park, The Staten Island Ferry, and Top of the Rock. Times square is great for photos, but for video it is a little tricky because the frequency of the monitors generates a flickering in videos.

What would you recommend to people visiting NYC for the first time?

I recommend to take a small camera, I walked long hours with my mirrorless on neck and it was great, I saw many tired people walking with dslr and giant lenses what surely must compromise ride.
