Project Vertical NYC

Project Vertical NYC is a Hanover, Germany based group of TV-Journalism students looking for NYC based street artists for a documentary they are filming.  Here is some more detail about their project:

  • We are 11 students who are studying TV-Journalism at the University of Hanover
  • This project is part of a seminar, which is called cultural journalism
  • This field trip is a huge thing for us, because it is the first time we are able to make a movie outside of Germany
  • We will be in New York from the 6th of June till the 20th
  • Our plan is to accompany artists who produce their artworks in the sky, on the streets and in the underground of New York City
  • We also want to show the life of the artist, in order to answer the questions: Why is the artist doing what he/she  is doing? What is the purpose of his/her art and what is life like as an artist?
  • An artist can be anybody who is doing cultural things. It also includes actors, Dj’s or painters, sculptors …..
  • The documentary is supposed to be 30 to 45 minutes long

If everything works out, the film will be published on German public Television.
