Eternal Storm: The After-Effects of Hurricane Sandy

Eternal Storm: The After-Effects of Hurricane Sandy

Jamie Stuart, the filmmaker who shot Idiot with a Tripod, the 2010 blizzard short film that Roger Ebert called Oscar-worthy, is back with another short about the after-effects of Hurricane Sandy. In a sense, the new four-minute “Eternal Storm” is a conceptual follow-up to his 2010 short film and was shot in Far Rockaway, Staten Island, Coney Island and Astoria one week after Sandy hit.

About his new film, Stuart writes, “I don’t know if it’s right to create art out of this experience, yet. I don’t know what the time limit is. But I have created something that I hope people can appreciate. And art always helps.”

Idiot with a Tripod: New York’s Blizzard of 2010

Here’s the moody, brilliantly-shot meditation on a buried city that was called Oscar-worthy by Roger Ebert. The video was shot by filmmaker Jamie Stuart in Queens, New York, during the snowstorm on the night of December, the 26th. Like the film itself, the title, Idiot with a Tripod, is an homage to the 1929 silent film Man With a Movie Camera.
