Empty, Time-Lapsed Los Angeles
July 29, 2011
What if tomorrow, every car in LA disappeared?
So asked Ross Ching, an LA director and frustrated driver. With photographer Matt Logue’s Empty LA as his creative impetus, Ching took time-lapse footage of LA freeways with a Canon 60D, and then (get ready) combed through the hours of footage to find the individual frames that didn’t contain cars. He masked all of those moments together, and voila – car-less LA (far more shocking to me, a frustrated Final Cut user, is that there’s a human on earth who has the patience to undertake such a project).
