“Snow Globe Los Angeles” by All Cut Up Films

Just in time for the holidays! “Snow Globe Los Angeles” is a short time-lapse film that captures the city of L.A. during the holiday season. Photographers Colin Mika & Brandon Vedder of¬†All Cut Up Films¬†created this beautiful time lapse of Los Angeles with a twist (or actually two). The first is that the entire film was shot through a snow globe, which I assume means that the camera was upside down for the entire duration of the shoot. The second is the use of paper cut filters to achieve a shaped bokeh.

“Snow Globe Los Angeles” was created using over 4000 still images shot on a custom built camera rig. The effect was achieved using a Canon 5D MII, a homemade tilt-shift style lens, a light bulb filled with water, and paper cut outs to create shaped bokeh.

Music: “Samskeyti” by Sigur Ros
