Huliganov’s American Experience #1/10 “In at the Deep End”

Playout date: 24 May 2007
Duration: 14:09

This was the first of my longer series based on travel for work. There was a South Africa series that was 10 clips long, with a special intro as well as the usual outro.

The intro here was supposed to be falling into Niagara falls from space, as well as I could do it with the available technology. In total there is enough footage to make a whole feature length movie, but in parts, and here at the outset I ask the viewer to let me know if I captured the heart of “Americaniania”, as Huliganov puts it. Yes, I stay in caracter through the whole series

This was in fact my first time in America. It was very nice to be accompanied by my colleague and friend Kasia Ogrodnik-Zawadzka. Greg Longic was also there was the conference but he wanted to stay with his sister in Chicago while Kasia and I went off for a fine road trip to see the Amish, the Niagara Falls and the Clever Land, Ohio.

Quote of the clip: “I never been free before so I’m looking to go out of the Harey airport and be this free person for the first time”
