Midtown New York City is such a frenetic environment. The lights, cars, traffic, architecture, and people make the city come to life as a living, breathing, organism that never sleeps. Take a trip with this time-lapse production into the city: see the sights and sounds that create this magnificent destination. This timelapse short film was produced using more than 50,000 still frames, shot over the course of 6 months traveling back and forth from Washington, D.C. to New York City. The main goal was to capture the central part of the city in both visuals and audio. The sound effects used in this production were taken from the various locations and were added in to give you the feeling of actually being there. 

There were multiple times during this shoot that we were chased off, either by cops or the cold. The subway shots were particularly difficult to get, especially in the wake of the Boston bombings. We were led out and in some cases followed by police officers or MTA officials who seemed intent on getting us for using tripods. It was fun.
