Man in a Blizzard (aka Idiot With a Tripod) is a beautiful short film by Jamie Stuart documenting the Blizzard of 2010 in Astoria, Queens. The film is an homage to the 1929 short film Man With a Movie Camera by Dziga Vertov and Roger Ebert thinks that it should win an Academy Award for best live-action short subject.
You can tell from the cinematography he knew exactly what he was doing and how to do it. He held the Vertov film in memory. Stuart must already been thinking of how he would do the edit and sound. Any professional will tell you the talent exhibited here is extraordinary.
