Student filmmaker Tyler Cullen recently embarked on the streets of New York City to ask pedestrians wearing headphones a simple question: "What song are you listening to?" The results are as varied as New Yorkers themselves; respondents listened to everything from Lil' Wayne and The Black Keys to The Bee Gees, Keni Burke, Frank Sinatra and Britney Spears.
Many city-dwellers use headphones and portable music players to create an invisible barrier between ourselves and those around us. This odd social habit makes Cullen's ability to break down that wall even more special. I especially love the diverse pool of pedestrians he picked for the short film.
Tyler Cullen currently attends the School of Visual Arts. If this short film is any indication, he's in for quite a successful career after graduation.
