A Short Film about Dublin, My Home City

A Short Film about Dublin, My Home City - Behind the scenes and details of the edit

Over the years I’ve accumulated quite a bit of footage of Dublin City and I wanted to do something with it so I began putting this little video together a while ago.

VSCO Cam and VSCO Grid

VSCO Cam and VSCO Grid

VSCO Camhas been around for a while, and I’ve been using it off and on since it came out, but lately I’ve been spending a lot more time on the App. VSCO Cam is an iPhone (and Android) photography app. It consists of a camera and some editing tools.
