What's going on

There is a group documenting the "post-natural" Hunters Point South before it turns into this: http://www.nycedc.com/project/hunters-point-south. This group includes @laurachipley as well as Nathan Kensinger and a larger crew.

My attempt and results

On August 1st, @Eymund, @Lise%20Brenner and I went out with @laurachipley and Nathan and their crew.

Here is a link to some of the video I shot using a GoPro. [warning - it's shaky!!]

The Adobe Premiere plugin to correct the GoPro fisheye distortion worked pretty well. You can also apply a warp stabilizer to smooth out the video.
