Mirror City Timelapse

Mirror City is a visual story directed and filmed by artistic filmmaker & photographer extraordinaire, Michael Shainblum. It features some of the great American cities: Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. These clips were all processed from their original form, into the kaleidoscopic visuals that you see in this video. Many people visit these large cities every day, and all of these places have been shot and filmed, but Michael wanted to push the envelope and emulate these urban landscapes in a way that nobody has even seen before. He wanted to put man-made geometric shapes, mixed with elements of color and movement to create less of a structured video, and more of a plethora of abstract visual stimulation. This piece took about four months to create. Thank you Michael for sharing your talent and gifts with the world, the video is genius and beautiful!
