The filming technique is called tilt-shift.
There's something about the speed of this, or maybe the height, that makes everything look like toys. I kept being amazed that the cars didn't hit each other or run over people! And NY traffic is relatively organized!
Oops, should have looked up tilt-shift before commenting! I have a neat iPhone app that has it, now to find ways to play with it!
Always great to hear from visitors to Nomadic View. What's on your mind?
