Press Release, Miami to New York.
Here’s our current Press Release about the journey and the production;
Hy Mayerson and Sean Corcoran step onboard an Amtrak train in Miami on the 12th of March for a not so ordinary journey. They travel for 30 hours through 11 states covering a distance of over 1500 miles until it reaches New York. The entire journey will be captured on camera.
Hy is an experienced videographer and Sean uses photography as a tool of his trade. They will be creating what they call Drive by Shootings of the zooming landscape and there will be a series of themed interviews with the people they encounter. With the footage they create they intend to produce a series of videos, an exhibition and maybe a short film.
The journey itself will be broadcast through a live webcam. They are currently collaborating with several recording artists, musicians, a songwriter, a cartoonist, an editor, a web designer and a technician. They are using Skype video calls to fine tune their plans. They have launched a website/blog with regular updates of the project; www.miamitonewyork.com
Hy is a well-respected attorney with a practice in Spring City. He is a prolific videographer with a huge archive of video footage that he has created down through the decades. He embraces technology, is a huge music fan and has a great You Tube Channel that showcases his video work under the nom de plume RedKruzer.
Sean is an Artist based in Waterford, Ireland. He has worked in many different media, from Stained Glass to Sculpture and was the artistic director of The Salvage Shop. Digital Art, Video and Photography are currently central to his practice.
Hy and Sean met in 2005 when Sean was exhibiting his Photo Distortions in Waterford and Hy and his wife Colleen were in Ireland on tour with singer Sean Tyrell. They have kept in touch since then and have collaborated on several videos. Over the past year Hy and Sean have been discussing the idea of creating what would be called the ImaginAIRium based in a large Meeting House on the outskirts of Philadelphia. Hy is 72 and Sean is 40 so between them they claim to have 112 years of wisdom!
The production doesn’t end in New York, Hy will travel back to Ireland with Sean where they intend to continue shooting along the west coast and over to Inis Oirr, one of the Aran Islands. This should prove to be an eventful few weeks. The first expedition of the ImaginAIRium! One to watch.
