Winter Rider | 2012

Shot and edited by Elizabeth Press

Graphics by Caroline Samponaro

Chronicling a 15 mile bike adventure from brownstone Brooklyn to the beach in Queens, Winter Rider is a snapshot into winter surfing on the east coast.  Winter Riders tend to convene at family owned, Boarder’s Surf Shop, in the Rockaways, for hot showers and community but are not yet large enough a crowd to keep Rockaway Taco open year-round. Shot on a 18 degree January day in Brooklyn and Queens with a LomoKino camera.

Raised Crosswalk | 2008

This stop-animation Streetfilm illustrates the advantages of adding a raised crosswalk.

Raised crosswalks are Speed Tables outfitted with crosswalk markings and signage to channelize pedestrian crossings, providing pedestrians with a level street crossing. Also, by raising the level of the crossing, pedestrians are more visible to approaching motorists.

Raised crosswalks are good for locations where pedestrian crossings occur at haphazard locations and vehicle speeds are excessive.
