A San Francisco Time-Lapse, Minus the San Franciscans

Filmmaker Ross Ching created this eerie time-lapse of San Francisco in which all the city’s streets, bridges, and sidewalks are completely empty. The effect was achieved not by shutting down San Francisco’s streets, but by clever digital trickery (see the how-to video below). The time-lapse is the first in Ching’s “Empty America” series—he plans to create more empty city time-lapes in cities around the country. The time-lapse series is inspired by the 2009 photo series “Empty L. A.” by Matt Logue.
