I am Joshua Guerci. I make films. These things inspire me.
Add this to your list of Ultimate New York Tributes: thousands of still photographs animate this motion picture homage to Joey Ramone and New York City.
Joey Ramone himself makes an appearance in the video, via never-before-seen archival footage shot by his friend George Seminara.
Some details in the film will only be recognizable to hardcore Ramones fans. For example, one shot takes place at 53rd and 3rd in Manhattan, which was the title of The Ramones second single about bassist Dee Dee Ramone’s experiences hustling on that corner. “Of course, the spot has cleaned up a lot since then,” says the movie’s director, Greg Jardin.
