Busking on 37: a documentary

I am very, very proud to finally present to you all my latest documentary film, Busking on 37.

The film stars my good friend Yero Lopez – a.k.a. Crescendo – who spends time playing his saxophone on a local street corner, having interesting conversations with passersby and making it a good time.

Check it out and let me know what you think. Thank you to the wonderful musicians on the Newgrounds Audio Portal for providing the music for the film, which really helps make some of the scenes. Details for these and the materials used are as follows.

MUSIC: “A World of Blue” by Matthew Pablo, “Smooth Fall” by Macpherson
CAMERA: Sony HVR-V1U HDV/MiniDV Camcorder
AUDIO: Sony HVR-V1U Onboard Microphone
