When I first started Mirror City, I wanted to create a video that was completely out of the norm,” Michael Shainblum, the creator of “Mirror City”, states on vimeo. “I wanted to showcase something unique and artistic, which takes Timelapse photography into a more abstract direction.” Well, we’d say he succeeded. When you first watch “Mirror City”, you’ll have your mind blown by the sheer amazingness of the pictures, because you’ve probably never seen anything like this before. The pictures look like they’re out of an avantgarde science-fiction movie, such as 2001, but in a more modern and unique way.
