Artist Statement:


    Terminal Bar is a kinetic, photo-driven documentary of one of the toughest, grittiest bars in Times Square, Manhattan, as seen through the haunting black-­and-white photographs taken by bartender Sheldon Nadelman from 1972 to 1982.

    His son, Stefan, made the 22-minute documentary not only as a tribute to his late grandfather’s bar, but of his father’s 10-year dedication to taking over 2,500 photographs of the bar and its downtrodden clientele.

    The entire film is animated in Flash and composited in Final Cut.
