Six Flags New Orleans was closed for Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and was so heavily damaged they never reopened. I recorded the following video last week with permission from the City of New Orleans. The park is scheduled to be demolished in January.

There were so many more things I saw but didn't get a chance to shoot on video (though I shot most of it on stills). For instance, I found a huge money room in a vault like you would see in a bank. There was no money, of course. Another building was a day care and preschool, probably for the employees' children. Another building had desktop computers stacked up from floor to ceiling; probably 300 computers. There was an entire warehouse full of about 8 different toys. THOUSANDS of copies of the 8 toys. There were probably 2,000 identical bobble head toys of the Six Flags bald guy in the warehouse.

Feel free to ask questions or comment.

For those who grew up there, I wish something like this was shot after Pontchartrain Beach closed (old amusement park). It would be cool to have old videos/pictures from there.

Great video! I like the Mercedes Benz logo on the wall at 1.48. (They thought the were painting a peace sign?)

The fan at 2:00 reminds me of the movie Angel Heart (DeNiro, Bonet, Rourke) which was also shot in New Orleans.

2.35 mask applied in final cut using the widescreen filter. Then used offset to get the framing exactly how I wanted.

I wanted the video to have a cinematic appearance and thought the 2.35 aspect helped sell that idea. Oh how I wish I had an iscorama anamorphic adapter for this shoot.

I don't know what you just said there, sounds like a foreign language to me from another world. You did great work with the tools you had at hand. Did you shoot this with your 5DMKII?

Oh and then I exported a proper 1920x817 QuickTime to upload to YouTube instead of a 1920x1080 video with black bars. This helps maximize data rate and compression. Though for some reason I am getting a one pixel white line at the bottom of the frame on YouTube but it's not on my QuickTime file.
