Homage to Claude Lelouch

After shooting yesterday, the art director, my digital tech and I rented some bikes from the great ubiquitous public bike rental system in Paris and decided to take a spin through the city.  I shot a little video that is my homage to the classic 1976 short film “C’était un Rendez-vous” by Claude Lelouch, which you can see here.

My version is very low tech. I basically just taped my little point and shoot camera to my chest and off we went. Thanks to David and Matt for a great ride.

    Awesome Scott. It was a great ride through the city. Nice audio too. It lined up perfectly. But I like the ending the best, but I guess that only because I was there.

    Hey Scott, that was a great ride! Thanks. I have the film – one of my favourites. What a difference it makes riding around Paris in daytime with the god-awful, real traffic, compared to what Lafitte experienced on a Sunday morning at 0530. You were a brave soul – some of those ‘near misses’ caught my breath. Wheeee…..have fun.

    All the best for Shanghai.
    Hope you’ll have fun.
