Jamie Stuart, an Astoria neighbor and filmmaker (we’ve got a lot of those in our friendly little ‘hood!) headed out during Sunday’s blizzard and filmed scenes of daily life, as the snowfall went from a pleasant dusting to a heavy, impenetrable dumping.
He edited and released it one day later. Then Roger Ebert — the acclaimed film critic — hailed it as an Oscar contender.
All in just a few days. Impressive. I think my most notable achievement from those two days was finally going outside and taking a few quick photos — long after the snow had stopped.
