I was rushing to catch a train @ Union Square and got snared by a drum beat. I found a spot in the crowd and turned on the camera. With every familiar song they played the crowd grew. They played 6 songs in 6 minutes and you know them all. I was filming and trying not to bob my head to the music. Let’s grow their crowd even more. They are 3 friends “who just got together” to jam and they “don’t have a name yet.” Nice distraction. I forgot that I was rushing to catch a train.
MY SMALL STORY
Over the past 15 years I have traveled, filmed and and acquired a library of over 6,000 hours. From the recording studio in NYC to South African Safari’s, I have filmed my conversations and watched my library grow. On April 26, 2010, I launched www.MySmallStroy.com in NYC as a way to share insight. My Small Story contextualizes life through a collection of unscripted filmed conversations with small businesses, entrepreneurs, artists and everyday people filmed, edited & shared weekly by LaRon Batchelor – a videographer/ethnographer with 15 years experience filming conversations in 4 continents.
