We are three independent writers and filmmakers shooting an independent documentary about the Chelsea Hotel, El Quijote restaurant and, in general, the past, present and future of these two cultural institutions of NYC.
So far we have interviewed many personalities related to the hotel: past and present tenants, cultural analysts, writers, artists, etc. So in order to better illustrate all these testimonials, we are going to need all kind of images for the movie.
If you have photographs, videos, etc. of the hotel, whether professional or amateur, beautiful or ugly, ancient or modern, from the lobby, front desk, stairs, the art that was hanging on the walls, etc., etc., it would be fantastic if you want to share them with us.
Unfortunately our budget is ridiculous, and we cannot pay for them, but we assure you that your name will appear in the credits of the film as a collaborator and the pictures will be properly credited. And, needless to say, your generous help will be of great importance to this love letter that we are devoting to one the most iconic places for the literature, music, acting, etc.,of the last century.
As for the technical aspects, the ideal is that the photos are large (200-300 dpi and 2,500 px of size). However, in case they are smaller, we could consider them to be included. If you have the pictures in paper, we could work out how to scan them.
For any questions and also for sending images, videos, etc., you can write us to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks a lot,
Julio Valdeón & Iván Córdoba & Javier Rioyo.
