This video from Lost & Found films profiles Chon Gon Byun and his eclectic home in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. It is a joy to see the intimate relationship Byun has with all of the assorted items found in his travels. Byun describes his penchant for collecting like this,
“In New York, there is a lot that is thrown away and a lot that is sold. You can create a lot of stories by putting these pieces together.”
This video is also a great example of the subtle and often undervalued power of sound editing. Listen to the sounds of the space, the dead air, the small engines at work, how Byun’s voice fills this space. Listen to how the soundtrack builds as the story builds. Lost & Found films are on top of their game.
