Time-Lapse Video of San Francisco--Minus All the People

By Norman Chan

The second in director Ross Ching's Empty America video project.

For Ross Ching's Empty America video series, the director is travelling across the country to shoot time-lapse videos iconic landmarks in major cities, and then editing them to remove any traces of pedestrians and traffic. The results are beautiful and eerie at the same time. Ching demonstrates his process in the video below--a combination of Photoshop, After Effects, and Premiere.
