Fair Lawn Teen Films Superstorm Sandy Mini-Documentary

Thirteen-year-old weather buff Daniel Mazover filmed a brief narrative film on Superstorm Sandy and its effects on Fair Lawn.

Daniel Mazover missed out on Irene last August and took only pictures during Snowtober a couple months later, so when he got word of Superstorm Sandy's North Jersey course a few weeks ago he wasn't about to let a little rain and some hurricane force winds keep him from filming his first weather documentary.

The 13-year-old weather buff shot pre-storm interviews Sunday, filmed throughout the storm Monday afternoon -- even as he lost power in his own home -- and then circled back through Fair Lawn to capture the aftermath on Tuesday and Wednesday.

In addition to filming scenes on the ground and in the car with the help of friends Jacob Chernavsky and Josh Zimmerman, Mazover even attached a Midland XTC Action Camera to the handlebars of his bike to film a quick spin -- and spill -- at Saddle River County Park.

With the necessary footage in tow, Mazover put the finishing edits and effects on his eight-and-a-half-minute masterpiece using iMovie.
