Graham’s Ghostbusters Tour of New York

Monday 23rd September 2013 – Part 1

Today I paid homage to the most New York of all New York films: Ghostbusters. The timeless story of four schlubby pest control operatives who take on the forces of inter-dimensional evil… and win!

My homage involved a trip to every real-world filming location I could find in order to make this outrageously awesome video!

For the video averse, here’s a little slide show of some of the locations:

I mentioned last week that I would be meeting with Cesar Kuriyama while in New York and after my jaunt around the city I did just that, in McSorley’s, the oldest Irish Bar in the city (that’s still going). Cesar is the guy who did this:

And that inspired me to do this:

As we drank too many light and dark beers (every round you get half a pint of each, it’s tradition, I think…) we talked movies, filmmaking, TED, travel and generally making awesome things happen.

Everything got a bit blurry...

Around midnight, my old uni mate Oscar (also a filmmaker) rucked up, two hours late, naughty boy. Cesar cut off and Osc and I kept the British end up by heading off to another bar where he could drink something other than beer.

This is a short film Oscar made and it’s lovely. Got nominated for a Bafta and everything. You should watch it.

We rolled back into Oscar’s gaff around 2am and I crashed out on the couch. I had to up for my appearance on national television in, um, four hours…
