In the last couple of years, I have produced what I call "The Dead Mall Series," 32 short films and counting about dead malls.

在过去的几年里,我制作了所谓的“废弃的商场系列”。32部关于废弃商场的短片,数量还在增加。
Now, for those of you who are not familiar with what a dead mall is, it's basically a shopping mall that has fallen into hard times.
如果你们不熟悉什么是废弃的商场,它就是一座商场,陷入了艰难的境地。
So it either has few shops and fewer shoppers, or it's abandoned and crumbling into ruin. No sale at Penny's.
所以要么它里面的商店和顾客越来越少,要么它被弃置,坍塌成一片废墟。Penny's不打折了。
I started producing this series in early 2015 after going through kind of a dark period in my life
我开始制作这个系列的时候是2015年初,在我经历了人生中的低谷之后,
where I just didn't want to create films anymore.
我那时候不想再做电影了。
I put my camera away and I just stopped. So in 2015, I decided to make a short film about the Owings Mills Mall.
我收起了相机,直接甩手不干了。在2015年,我决定做一个介绍Owings Mills商场的短片。
Owings Mills Mall opened in 1986. I should know because I was there on opening day.
Owings Mills商场开业于1986年。我应该知道这个,因为开业那天我就在现场。

美国废弃的购物中心

I was there with my family, along with every other family in Baltimore,

我和我的家人一起,和巴尔的摩的每家每户一起,
and you had to drive around for 45 minutes just to find a parking spot.
你得开车绕来绕去45分钟,就为了找到一个停车位。
So if you can imagine, that's not happening at the malls today.
所以你能想象,今天的任何一个商场开业都不会再有这样的盛况了。
My first mall job that I had as a teenager was at a sporting goods store called Herman's World of Sports. Maybe you remember.
我少年时期的第一份商场的工作是在一家叫“Herman的体育世界”的运动用品店里。可能你记得。
Herman's World of Sports. You guys remember that?
Herman的体育世界。你们记得这个吗?
Yeah, so I worked in a lady's shoe store. I worked in a leather goods store, and I also worked in a video store,
是的,我在女鞋店里工作过。也在皮革制品店里工作过,还在影像店里工作过,
and not being one who was very fond of the retail arts -- I got fired from every single job.
作为一个并不是很喜欢销售艺术的人--每一份工作我都被炒鱿鱼了。
