I "Break" NY - Episode 4 of 12

O.k., not gonna lie... this is probably my least favorite of the 12 -- I'm not sure why. I have no one to blame but myself since I did all the work haha -- but I think it's a combination of covering something I would have LOVED to have shot in person (Eurobattle 2009) with photos, shooting at night with no extra lights, trying to figure out the style of the series (I edited this mostly without the help of sit-down interviews), and also showing down-time without having the luxury of explaining a lot of the backstory that makes these conversations the most interesting. Nevertheless... here it is -- after this the series starts heating up...!
