Roger Ebert Calls this Video Oscar Worthy.

Here is a simple yet cool video of the NYC blizzard shot by Jamie Stuart  with a camera and tripod. There is a time before the snow turns into slush that is truly beautiful.  Roger Ebert thinks that this three-and-a-half minute video is Oscar Worthy.

Here is what Ebert had to say:
" This film deserves to win the Academy Award for best live-action short subject.
(1) Because of its wonderful quality. (2) Because of its role as homage. It is directly inspired by Dziga Vertov's 1929 silent classic "Man With a Movie Camera." (3) Because it represents an almost unbelievable technical proficiency. It was filmed during the New York blizzard of Dec. 26, and Jamie Stuart e-mailed it to me with this time stamp: December 27, 2010 4:18:18 PM CST. "

The turn-around time on this video is truly amazing as well. Stuart used a Canon 7D (and a variety of Nikon manual lenses) to shoot the film and Final Cut Pro to edit this in just a little over a day!
Watch the video below and let us know what you think!
