Film The Bronx - New Fulton Fish Market

<p>  </p> <p> In 2005, the Fulton Fish Market was moved from Downtown Manhattan to Hunts Point, in the Bronx. The film that we're shooting is half-way between a video-portrait, or an archive of nightworkers in the Bronx, and a video-atlas, or a sketching of the displacement of a historical landmark.</p> <p>  </p> <p> With the creation of this additional Market, the Hunts Point neighborhood became the "Stock Market" of the Bronx, and furthermore of the <em>new</em> New York, although it is still considered as one of New York City's worst neighborhoods. It is an industrial and commercial complexe, but its nights are filled with voices and memories. </p> <p>  </p> <p> The fish sellers, the buyers, the tuna men, the filet men, the truck drivers, the journey men, the security guards... share their impressions on the new location, on the old market, on the neighborhood... They mention their experience of the nightshifts, their relationship to the ocean, to fishing, to fish. </p> <p>  </p> <p> Through the inteviews and conversations, we wish to provide this new space with a spatial aknowledgement, based on the structure of a geographical Atlas. </p> <p>  </p> <p> We film this market as part of a larger space: Hunts Point Neighborhood, with the other Markets (Meat, Flower...), the Sanitation Facility, a Correctional Center - actually the only boat in the area, fixed at dock.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Vlcsnap-2013-06-04-01h33m37s173" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Vlcsnap-2013-06-03-23h54m29s134" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Vlcsnap-2013-06-04-01h10m51s115" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Vlcsnap-2013-06-04-01h19m02s180" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Vlcsnap-2013-06-04-01h27m54s106" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Vlcsnap-2013-06-04-01h17m23s199" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Vlcsnap-2013-06-04-01h29m05s42" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Img_8923" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Vlcsnap-2013-06-04-01h22m56s208" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Vlcsnap-2013-06-04-01h20m33s43" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Vlcsnap-2013-06-04-01h23m48s219" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Vlcsnap-2013-06-04-01h25m22s127" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> The title of the teaser "On The Bronx Waterfront", is inspired by Elia Kazan's movie "On The Waterfront", with Marlon Brando and his hook. </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Sur_les_quais_1954_on_the_waterfront__elia_kazan_3" src=""></p>

Allocation of funds

<p> The crowdfunding will be used for production and postproduction of the film. </p> <p>  </p> <p> We already have some material (lenses, computer hardware and software for editing...), and friends lent us a Zoom h4n to record the sound for the entire shoot, and some sound equipment (mic etc.) for part of the shoot. </p> <p>  </p> <p> We need to rent a Canon 5d mII (7 days), rent some sound equipment for a couple days, buy a monopod with a fluid video head (necessary type of material for these shoots on the field), and we need to buy more postproduction hardware (external hard drives). </p> <p>  </p> <p> If we achieve the goal of the crowdfuning quickly, we will consider a budget for Color Correction and Sound Mixing !</p>
