Jamie Stuart’s Short on Hurricane Sandy

Jamie Stuart has been Filmmaker‘s videographer for years, but became known to a broader audience in late 2010 when he captured snowbound New York in his short film Idiot with a Tripod.

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Stuart was out again filming the impact of extreme weather on the city, and has now released the short film Eternal Storm, to which he adds the following notes:

I don’t know if it’s right to create art out of this experience, yet. I don’t know what the time limit is. But I have created something that I hope people can appreciate. And art always helps.

“Eternal Storm” was shot on location in Far Rockaway, Staten Island, Coney Island and Astoria about a week after Hurricane Sandy hit. The intent was simply to create something beautiful out of something disastrous.

Incidentally, Jamie is also currently trying to raise funds for his debut feature, To Eradicate, and you can contribute to the film’s Kickstarter campaign here.
