Time Lapse Video Captures LA Through a Snow Globe

This clever video takes time lapse footage to a whole new level by shooting multiple scenes of LA through a snow globe with a constantly changing array of bokeh patterns.

Courtesy of All Cut Up Films, “Snow Globe Los Angeles” is a clever still motion project that captures LA during the holiday season. They write:

“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.
