In case you still haven’t heard, Pittsburgh is a beautiful city. As with my previous Pittsburgh short film “Steel City”, I wanted to showcase the beauty and diversity of the area that many might not have known existed. We have stunning architecture, a diverse culture and an abundance of awesome water fountains. After eight months and seven-thousand still images, my hope is that Greetings From Pittsburgh, along with Steel City, will help change people’s perception of the area.

The short film features several iconic PGH landmarks including the water fountain at Point State Park (The Point), the overlook in Mount Washington, Bessemer Court at Station Square, PPG Place in Market Square, the Cathedral of Learning, the Steel Building, the Gateway Clipper, the Allegheny County Courthouse, the Roberto Clemente Bridge near PNC Park and the Fort Duquesne Bridge near Heinz Field.

Greetings From Pittsburgh was filmed with the Canon EOS Rebel T3i DSLR running Magic Lantern with the Sigma 17-50MM F/2.8 and Canon EF-S 55-250MM F/4.0-5.6 lenses and Tiffen Variable ND filter. The Davis & Sanford Provista 7518 Tripod with FM18 Head was used for support. The video was edited using Adobe Premiere and After Effects CS5.5 on a 15.4″ MacBook Pro with Retina Display. Image processing was handled in Adobe Camera RAW and the footage was color graded and corrected using Red Giant Magic Bullet Looks and Denoiser II.
