At Toronto's Yonge-Dundas Square on a Sunday Morning

NEW YORK—Amidst all the New York Film Festival coverage I've done in the past month or so, I wasn't able to put up this video I took of Yonge-Dundas Square while I was at the Toronto International Film Festival in September...until today.

It's not much: just a slow 360° shot (a signature of mine as an amateur videographer, if I was to exalt myself to the level of amateur auteur or something pretentious like that). But this footage was taken at around 8:30 in the morning...and unlike New York's Times Square, apparently Yonge-Dundas Square that early in the morning looks and feels like a dead zone of sorts. Not a whole lot of people, few cars on the roads—frankly, it almost looked as if the apocalypse had already hit, that's how barren it looked!

But hey, what a sunny, beautiful apocalypse, am I right?
