01: NYC

Elena Virata

A visual diary written, shot, and edited by Elena Virata in 2019.

“It was my first time ever flying solo to a place I’ve never been to – New York City. I flew in to take a filmmaking workshop in New York Film Academy. I had never been to a place so full of life, color, sound, and dreams. I was surrounded by art. So I made sure I was shooting every single day to cement all the new memories I was making. This was the trip I knew I was made to be a filmmaker.”
