Film-Time Train

Here's a sneak preview, snippet, of the short film shown at the World Arts Film Festival at WJCT, in Jacksonville Florida.

A trip down San Francisco’s Market Street with footage from 1906, prior to the great earthquake that leveled many of the city’s buildings blended with scenes from the same locations through present day. The source film from 1906 is called A Trip Down Market Street and was a 13-minute film by placing a movie camera on the front of a cable car as it traveled down San Francisco’s Market Street. A virtual time capsule from over 100 years ago, the film shows many details of daily life in a major American city, including the transportation, fashions and architecture of the era. Over the course of a few years I was able to capture recent footage of the same path, showing some of the cities unique, restored cable cars and buses along with an interesting mix of pedestrians and automobiles.
