BBC America recreates NYC in miniature
by Megan Meagher
In a wonderful mix of mediums BBC AMERICA has used 100% handcrafted miniatures to recreate the devastation of the 1863 New York Draft riots.
The video, created by Joe Sabia and written by Lark Turner, is meant to hype the debut of COPPER, a crime series set in the 1860s.
According to the site:
"From Academy Award® Winner BARRY LEVINSON and Emmy Award® Winner Tom Fontana comes BBC America's all new original series, COPPER.
In 1864, he was New York's Finest. COPPER is a gripping crime series set in 1860s New York City, and centers on Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones, MI-5), an intense, rugged Irish-immigrant cop working the city's notorious Five Points neighborhood. Corcoran is struggling to maintain his moral compass in a turbulent world while on an emotional and relentless quest to learn the truth about the disappearance of his wife and the death of his daughter. Co-starring Franka Potente (The Bourne Supremacy, Run Lola Run)."
