Last week a post touched on a series of new crosswalk paintings in Brandon’s core area that aim to put a higher priority on the pedestrian experience. The post went over surprisingly well with this site’s audience with over 1350 views/reads and plenty of reaction on social media.
Now this week a viral video making the rounds on various social media shows one of those crosswalks in a completely new light courtesy Brandon’s Trident Films.
The few minute clip features pianist David Naylor performing Beethoven’s Für Elise in isolation in the middle of Downtown’s 10th and Rosser intersection, soon to be joined by ballerina Faith Kasprick and a host of other familiar local faces. It all makes for a fun and powerful visual of a section of the city that’s taken a turn to more of a pedestrian focus in light of the crosswalk updates:
According to Trident’s Rhoni Mohanraj, the video was created with the idea of taking the new interactive art and making it even more fun and interesting.
To facilitate filming on an otherwise quiet Sunday last September, temporary street closures were put in place on filming day on Rosser Avenue from 11th to 9th and 10th from Pacific Ave to Princess and traffic re-routed with the support of the Brandon Downtown Development Corporation and the City.
