Even though the video was filmed over a three month period, the team from Beverly Hills Aerials wanted to give a sense of what a 24-hour period felt like in the second most populated city in the United States. Los Angeles. With a population of almost 4 million people, the sprawling metropolis always seems vibrant and active, especially from above.
The video opens with a quiet downtown scene at 12:01am and flawlessly takes us through a California sunrise, the chaotic mid-day, colorful sunsets and finally, seeing the never ending freeways still bustling well into the night.
The Vimeo description says that the team shot the scenes from over 50 locations while paying particular attention to the time of day, in order to tell the 24-hour story that they had sought. After the filming was complete, they had over 4TB of photos that wound up being consolidated to this two-minute film, which was matched perfectly with an original song “Lost Panorama” by To Be Decided.
