steel city short film

Someone at the national real estate blog Movoto got a hold of local filmmaker Brandon Roudebush‘s short film, “Steel City,” and, well, they’re impressed.

So much so in fact that post author Travis Sawrie may be considering dropping everything he’s doing and moving here; at least, we gathered that much from the headline. From Roudebush’s stunning shots of Downtown’s skyscrapers and bridges to his quick jump-cuts around just a few of the area’s different neighborhoods, he succeeds in what he sets out to do: get you psyched up about Pittsburgh.

Read the post and watch the video. There’s a 50/50 shot it will be the best three minutes of your day.
