Suzanne - A Timelapse Tribute to Leonard Cohen

i started with me looking for a cool location too shoot the full moon rising, i had shot the clock tower before from across the water but though it would be perfect to align with the moon if shot from the city side. The shoot went awesome, the moon was right where i predicted it would be, but when i decided to try Suzanne as music for the timelapse it was like a match made in heaven so I set off into a frenzy to shoot as much as i could before the end of the "cité Mémoire" Projection after the new year. I kind of new Leonard Cohen "the singer" by name and from a couple song like Hallelujah but i had never researched or been i big fan. But after listening to his music and reading from his work and life, i found a new appreciation for the artist, the poet but also the man. So after many night spent outside in the cold looking at stuff happening really slowly i'm really proud the upload my personal timelapse tribute Leonard Cohen. It's not perfect and i could probably have spent a lot more hours refining my edit but i have so much other stuff to edit and share i have to move to a new project. Hope you enjoyed the video

I really enjoyed this, and yes, Suzanne was the perfect choice. Brought back so many memories of Montreal too, thank you.
