Clip 1 out of 6.
An excellent documentary about the Chelsea Hotel in Manhattan that I recorded some time ago with my Elgato EyeTV. The legendary hotel manager at the time and majority owner, Stanley Bard, is the main speaker. He talks about the many famous and sometimes infamous people who have stayed at the Chelsea over the many years of its existence.
The documentary is in six parts, and each segment is about ten minutes in length. I used the rudimentary but workable editor within the EyeTV software, which is incredible by the way, and exported the snippets in MPEG4 format as it seemed to be the best and easiest way.
This documentary was made in September, 2001. The final takes in segment 6 were done on the roof of the Chelsea on September 11, just after 9 am. It’s all very emotional and tragic.
God bless Stanley Bard who gave these people a home, and without whom New York and the world would be poorer.
