First Impressions, Ten Years Later

Posted on | September 11, 2011 | 2 Comments

Sept. 11…watched the smoke rise off the Pentagon as I drove to work.

Sept. 12…my dear friend, Ray Farkas (the man who taught me producing), and I arrived in Manhattan. 10pm in Times Square, not a single car on the street. And the smell. I’ll never forget the smell.

Sept. 13…twelve hours of shooting around NY. This piece was the result.

With searing precision and emotional honesty, New York Reacts places us right in Manhattan, two days after the Twin Towers fell. We hear as New Yorkers try to make sense of their anger and understand the unimaginable. See the project at http://mediastorm.com/publication/new-york-reacts

Missing you today, Ray.

    My goodness, you were so blessed (lucky) to learn from Ray. That video will be the only one i watch today.

    Wish I could have known Ray, but I think you have become much like him—yes:-).
